VHHSBA Industry Forum 2018

More than 650 industry partners attended the inaugural VHHSBA Industry Forum 2018 at Melbourne Convention Centre on 31 May to hear Minister Foley, Deputy Secretary Nick Foa and the VHHSBA leadership team discuss the Authority's strategic infrastructure program and the opportunities for industry across our health, housing and sport portfolios.

The forum presented a unique opportunity to share inspiring insights and set bold new challenges around key themes, including:

  • A strong pipeline for health and human services infrastructure, to the tune of $3.8 billion for new and existing projects
  • Design matters when it comes to implementing universal design principles and sustainability best practice
  • Social procurement will give industry a competitive edge and ensure we boost the social and economic value of every project
  • Greater collaboration with industry will transform shared challenges into opportunities, achieving stronger partnerships and greater return on our investment


The forum was attended by industry from across Victoria and interstate, with one principal architect from a global firm commenting on LinkedIn, "It is really inspiring to see such a major client in our industry showing this level of commitment to patient and project outcomes."
