建築及び建設技術 Building and Construction Technology

オーストラリアでは、他のほとんどの先進国同様、グリーン・テクノロジーへの強い意欲があり、それは建築·建設業界においてどこよりも顕著です。新しい住宅建築、新規の商業用や工業用の建物の建設、あるいは既存の建物の改装工事であるかどうかにかかわらず、義務付けられていない場合でもエネルギー効率の高い技術を組み込みことは、需要主導で急速にすすんでいます。

 

A growing number of private and public sector organisations are actively working toward reducing their energy consumption and carbon footprint including, from a real estate perspective, by adopting and implementing:

  • Renewable energy solutions
  • Energy efficient lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning
  • New technologies in building insulation and elevators
  • Eco-friendly appliances and information and communication technologies.

At Shelston IP many of our patent attorneys possess technical qualifications which are relevant to building and construction technologies:

  • Engineering
  • Materials science
  • Process automation
  • Polymer science
  • Industrial chemistry.

Prior to qualifying as attorneys, a number of our professionals held roles with world-class developers of materials and technologies for the building and construction sector. For example, Senior Associate Michael Zammit worked for Dulux in its resin technology laboratories while simultaneously completing a Graduate Certificate in Surface Coatings Technology. Michael has also worked at the James Hardie research and product development laboratories, where he conducted research into fibre cement composites and building products.
