    Brisbane News

    The Brisbane chapter has kicked off 2018 with some very well attended monthly Get Togethers. We would like to thank our recent sponsors:

    • Jan: dts Builders
    • Feb: Anonymous sponsor
    • Apr: WHA Consulting
    • May: Holding Redlich

    Our May Get Together, kindly hosted by Holding Redlich was the second of our newly branded Event Evenings, with a presentation by Kirsty Smith on “The end of the project – what could possibly go wrong? 3 common issues: global claims, security and final certificates”. This went extremely well. Our feedback has been that these informational evenings are a welcome occasional change to the usual format.

    If you have a specialist topic and would like to host an Event Evening, please get in touch with us at info@lighthouselcubaus.org – we’d love to hear from you!

    The Brisbane committee are full steam ahead with planning for our annual ball, which will be held at Brisbane City Hall on Saturday 1st September 2018. Tickets are available now here: https://www.trybooking.com/VVBA and we would absolutely love to see you there! Our Ball last year was a tremendous success and we’d love your help to make it so next year, too.

    Perth News

    Perth continues to see good turnouts at the events. Thanks to sponsors TBH, Clifford Chance, Navigant, Law in Order and Jackson McDonald for their recent support.

    April saw our Speed Networking event jointly organised with the Society of Construction Law and sponsored by Law in Order. The event was held in the Perth offices of Clifford Chance, and saw 50 people each spend time networking with one another for a maximum of 3 minutes. Judging by the noise levels it was a phenomenal success! The event’s success was down to the diverse cross-section of the community that was attracted.

    The Perth Annual event is currently being planned for August – watch this space and our website for more information.

    Melbourne News

    Some recent moves by committee members into Melbourne have strengthened the leadership team, and the ‘re-launch’ of the Lighthouse Club in Melbourne is well on the way. Some of the events tentatively planned for the next few months include:

    • A talk on the current use of BIM in the industry;
    • A general talk on the construction market from a government official;
    • A discussion about AI in construction; and
    • A mock arbitration.

    We welcome comments on our proposed events. Any expressions of interest should be sent to info@lighthouselcubaus.org

    Adelaide News

    After a brief hiatus due to personal issues, we’re pleased that the Adelaide chapter will soon be reopening for business. Please check our website for details, and we look forward to seeing you there.
