Event Details

Design VS Construct. The age-old adversarial relationship will be on show for our inaugural Great Debate! The gloves are off. Who will be the victor?

There is always much discussion within project delivery ranks about who is the most 'valuable' consultant within the project delivery process! Is there even such a concept? Well, we are of course completely impartial… but what a great chance to get together for a good old-fashioned, humorous, professional, light-hearted, juicy DEBATE!

Please join our wonderful and esteemed teams of industry professionals from the property, design, construction and related industries who will be arguing, rebutting and debating their position on the topic - Who offers the most value across the project delivery life cycle?

On the Design Team: Christina Cho - Director at Cox Architecture, Tom Price - Director at Aston Consulting, Riye Arai-Coupe - Co-Founder & Partner, Bluebird.

On the Construction Team: Cris Munoz - Construction Manager at Multiplex, Marty Knezevic - Managing Director at One Electrical and Christina Elvin - State Sales Manager at polytec.

Our Moderators: Alana Muir - Architect at Ellivo Architects and Hannah Tohill - Associate Town Planner at Wolter Consulting Group.

A lighthearted and fun-filled debate will ensue over an evening full of crowd participation and cheer.

We will also be awarding our QLD WIDAC X FDC Education Scholarship on the night. Don't delay - apply here!

As always, our events are open to everyone.

We can't wait to see you there. It. is. ON.
