One of Vipac’s building and infrastructure experts, Barry Harrington, was invited to speak at the AusFenEx 2016 Conference. Barry delivered a presentation titled ‘Taking the pane out of window manufacturing and installation’, leveraging almost 40 years of experience in the Built Environment in Australia and New Zealand.
Barry addressed the importance of adequately testing for air and water leakages before a building is completed to avoid severe delays and superfluous costs. If a window is found to have leakages after being installed, the wall linings, plastering and painting may need to be redone which could put the project behind schedule and cost anywhere upwards of tens of thousands of dollars.
Date: Monday 15 August
Place: Gold Coast Conference & Exhibition Centre.
Barry has developed major building solutions and techniques for landmark projects such as Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), the Gold Coast University Hospital and the Novotel Hotel in Sydney’s CBD.
This was a fantastic networking opportunity for industry professionals and Barry thoroughly enjoyed meeting the attendees and speaking at the event.
