RACCA Australia have published the last article in their Throwback Thursday–ARBS Series and fittingly focuses on the most recent ARBS held, ARBS 2014.
ARBS 2014 was a huge success.
ARBS 2014 was held in Melbourne from May 22-24 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. According to AREMA’s Exhibition Report, ARBS 2014 hosted a total of 7,774 visitors, a five percent increase from ARBS 2012.
The ARBS 2014 seminar program included: a panel discussion on the adaptability of buildings for climate change, a Building Information Modelling (BIM) panel discussing the uses of BIM from multiple perspectives and a super panel focusing on multiple topics.
The WorldSkills Australia National Refrigeration Competition was also held at ARBS 2014 with 10 technicians from all states of the country, competing for a position in the 2015 Team Australia Skillaroos.
The PRIME initiative was also launched at ARBS 2014. The initiative was developed by a coalition of stakeholders from within the Australian heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) industry. Key stakeholders are united in developing low-emission solutions for the essential HVAC&R services we all depend upon. PRIME stands for the five pathways to transition to low-emission practices and technologies: Professionalism, Regulation, Information, Measurement, and Emission abatement.
