Retain, renew or demolish?

Retrofit Agenda Stage
Retrofit Agenda
Today, the redevelopment of existing buildings is experiencing an enormous shift in attitude. Challenging the demolish and new build approach of the recent past, this is a pivotal moment where innovation is championed across the industry. 

This session will explore the analysis of a hypothetical existing, 50-year-old, 25-storey-high commercial building to demonstrate the viability of varying degrees of interventions, through which the asset's life can be extended. Many buildings exist in every city, where building parts like services, facades and fit-outs have reached their service life, letting the asset stand at a crossroads for its next ‘life’. Hear from the architect, cost consultant, developer and planner to explore the diverse priorities and resultant value of existing assets.
