Event Details

The built environment includes all buildings and structures, living spaces, and recreational spaces that are created, or modified, by people for people. In addition to the buildings and spaces themselves, it also includes infrastructural elements such as waste management, transportation, and utility transmission systems put in place to serve this built space.

When evaluating the sustainability & positive impacts that technology has on the built environment, it is important to take a broad view incorporating broader stakeholders and communities, beyond immediate investors or building users.

Join us for an informative session that looks into the design, technology, and practices that enable built environments to progress even further in an attempt to achieve greater work efficiency and an environmentally friendly Malaysia.
