Over the past 18 months the Better Buildings Partnership has been busy demonstrating 60-80% recovery from office refurbishment projects, mapping the resource recovery ecosystem and identifying suppliers committed to the circular economy. It’s time to celebrate how far we have come and to invite you to be a part of this group of tenant organisations, building owners and contractors creating exciting local opportunities for reuse and recycling of resources.
 

Join us for the launch of the updated Better Buildings Partnership Stripout Waste Guidelines; the industry how-to guide for tenants, contractors and building managers on minimising waste from office refurbishments. 

  • Hear from those in the industry taking leadership in material recovery including case studies from the GPT Group on the recent refurbishment of Darling Park Tower 2.  
     
  • Tenants and building managers are invited to see how the principles of the Better Buildings Partnership guidelines are being embedded into the supply chain and to find the solution providers needed to continue driving improved resource recovery. 
     
  • Suppliers are invited to showcase their latest offers on resource recovery and hear more from Better Buildings Partnership members about their needs for supply chain support to achieve their 80% resource recovery targets. 
     
  • The event will also offer attending service providers the opportunity to be featured in The Fifth Estate’s GreenList – a national directory showcasing the leading companies able to support sustainable office refurbishment projects.
