Conference Day Two: Friday, 1st November 2019

Friday, November 1st, 2019


The future of campuses are constantly changing to be able to withstand the demand of increasing capacity of students and their need to differentiate themselves from other competing universities. Technology is transforming the campus structures and way of interaction between students and teachers. The uncontrollable factor of climate change has also been a big impact on building infrastructure.

The big question of whether to retrofit or rebuild has never been more of a priority in the decision making process. 

This panel will discuss:
  • Outlining the value of retrofit and rebuild to determine which approach is more effective 
  • Comparing successful retrofit and rebuild cases to demonstrate their existing value 
  • Identifying what factors influence retrofitting and rebuilding to determine whether it is as simple as the condition of the building
