The demand for efficient and modernised interior environments is a rising challenge for the Australian construction industry. More and more nations across the globe are on the steady course towards total urbanisation. Australia isn’t far behind with a reported 89.4% urban population. The lofty percentage increases by an annual rate of urbanisation at 1.47% as reported in 2015.

As urbanisation rises, so does the need for manpower to equip businesses and agencies across various fields of work. Thus, a greater number of people will be spending more time within buildings, workspaces, and other interior environments. The work environment must be deemed conducive to productivity in order for the workforce to attain the corporate goals, and steer the company to progress. At the same time, residential living in urbanised areas will also experience an upsurge as the population continues to grow.

In designing interior environments, the Australian construction industry face a variety of factors that need to be taken into consideration. One of these considerations is the inflating population of occupants in a specified area. In correspondence, the lack of space must be thoroughly reviewed to determine the approach to design. The enlistment of sustainable yet high performing materials must also be observed for the construction of modern building components.

For design professionals, the key to efficient interiors in urbanised living is full-circle education. Designers need to understand the nexus of the design expertise gained through concentrated studies, and the shifting trends of the Australian construction industry. Keeping abreast with modern and up-and-coming building techniques is the first-line procedure, from where the structural design of the building project will come to fruition.

Environmental sustainability is an advocacy of global proportions that is intensively supported by the Australian construction industry. This year will see a spike in the use of cross-laminated timber, composite wood, and other eco-friendly construction materials. Conversely, conventional building practices will gradually be traded off for more environmentally conscious methods. For example, designers are encouraged to build residential interiors in accordance with the passive solar method: using stone or concrete for flooring to trap the sun’s heat during the daytime and release it at night, predicted to lower heating bills by 30%.

The role of interiors in the future varies for every city. Design professionals must collaborate with local authorities to carefully plan the development of every interior project. On the whole, it is important for the Australian construction industry to establish connections between industry practitioners, students, and entire communities to build efficient interior environments for commercial and residential properties.

At the 米6米乐体育 Expo 2017, an extensive talk on designing interior environments as the solution to urbanised living will be discussed by Dr. Sing d’Arcy, an esteemed lecturer in Interior Architecture at the University of New South Wales. Dr. d’Arcy completed his undergraduate architectural studies, and doctoral studies in architectural history at the University of Sydney. Apart from his service to the academe, Dr. d’Arcy is a regular contributor to industry journals, such Houses and Artichoke, where he has published on the history of Sydney interiors, and sheds light on new interior design projects in Sydney.

Dr Sing d’Arcy will be speaking on Wednesday 3rd May in Theatre 2 at 米6米乐体育. Tickets are $25.00 + GST and are now available through registration here.
