On the 17th of October, Ridley CEO, Josh Ridley will chair The State of the Art (Technologies) session at this year’s Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) conference in Shenzhen, China.

Recent technological advances highlighted in this session will focus not just on improving the typology of tall buildings, but on how people interact with the buildings and their surroundings. Presentations will chronicle the state-of-the-art in the vertical realm, including another ground-breaking CTBUH research study on technologies at the cutting edge, across all disciplines.

The session will feature a panel of Architectural thought leaders including David Malott, CTBUH Leader and Principal at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Wai Ming Tsang, CEO Ping An Financial Centre and Karl-Otto Schoellkopf, Global High Rise Product Manager, Product Lifecycle Management at ThyssenKrupp.

hdIn an unprecedented first for a CTBUH conference, the event will take place progressively across the three cities: Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

Ridley has attended the CTBUH for the past three years including last year’s event in New York City. According to CEO Josh Ridley “as a business we seek to work with the best minds in the international property industry. We find the CTBUH conferences to be incredibly informative and relevant to our firm’s vision to deliver 10 city defining projects over the next 10 years”. Ridley’s Associate Principal and Head of Virtual Design & Construction, Daniel Kalnins is also involved in CTBUH as part of the BIM working group that will be discussing the new technology that’s driving tall building design and construction. Speaking on the significance of the conference Daniel commented “We’re excited to not just see the latest technological developments in the international property space but to take these learnings and apply them to some of our newest high profile tall building clients”.
