Australian manufacturers and builders talk high performance windows

Posted by on in Uncategorized

Australian homeowners expect many things from their new build or renovation; comfort, natural light, security and efficiency top the list in our move towards high performance housing.


The uPVC Windows Alliance and the Master Builders Association of Australia (MBAV) are coming together to host the Australian Fabricators and Builders Forum on 1 November 2017 in Melbourne. The Forum brings the Australian uPVC window and residential building industries together to observe emerging technology and discuss homeowner trends.


With practical demonstrations of high performance window installation, electric lock/opener technology, a look at the impact of natural light on a living space and the MBAV’s new Energy Efficiency App, the Fabricators and Builders Forum aims to be interactive and answer your questions about high performance windows.


Speakers include:

  • Richard Bailey, General Manager, Viridian Home Comfort - Latest research on homeowner trends - how windows are the ‘Soul of the Home’
  • Tracey Wakefield, CEO, Plustec - Discussion and demonstration of uPVC high performance window installation
  • Shane McDuff, MD, Fenestration Solutions Australia - electric door lock and electric window openers
  • Philip Alviano, Sustainable Building Adviser, MBAV - MBAV’s Energy Efficiency App
  • Sophi MacMillan, CEO, Vinyl Council of Australia - what’s next for the uPVC Windows Alliance


As part of the Forum, uPVC Windows Alliance members will also participate in the Fabricators Vision Session, a key opportunity to provide input and views on the Alliance’s strategic priorities. All Alliance Members (and prospective Members, by invitation) are encouraged to participate in our collaborative effort to drive the growth and opportunity of the Australian uPVC window industry.


The Fabricators Vision Session will run from 12.30 – 3.30pm (light lunch included), followed by the Fabricators and Builders Forum from 4-6pm.
