(L-R): Sam Bennett (Pitcher Partners), Julian Chai (NAB), Sally Burgoyne (Payton), Alex Huang (APDA Inc), Craig Smith (Napier & Blakeley)

Members of the Australian Property Developers Association (APDA Inc.) were once again treated to some very exclusive and insightful presentations by the most reputable names in the Australian quantity surveying and construction risk management sector recently.

During the evening, Mr Julian Chai, the Associate-Director of NAB’s Construction Risk Management Department, was accompanied by another well-known professional, Mr Craig Smith, Director of national quantity surveying firm, Napier & Blakeley, who expertly shared on the effects the recent cladding crisis had had on the Australian construction and insurance sectors. Craig also shared upon the regulatory processes that were put in place in Victoria to prevent post-construction structural defects that had been dominating the front page of national news of late.

As a testament of its value and contribution toward the development community, APDA Inc. is supported and sponsored by some of the most well-known brand names inside and outside the property and development sector, such as CBRE, Urbis, Pitcher Partners, Best Hooper Lawyers, Payton, DLX Creative and your very own contemporary luxury publisher, EZ Australia. 

If you are a part of or interested to be a part of the Australian property development community, please feel free to join as a member or attend one of APDA functions by reserving tickets to upcoming events. Further information can be seen at the official association website: or by emailing

最近,澳大利亚房地产开发商协会(APDA Inc.)的成员们再次有幸参与独家且富有洞察力的介绍会,这是由澳大利亚工料测量和建筑风险管理行业中著名公司专员现身说法。

Julian Chai 先生身为本土任职时间最长、经验最丰富的风险管理专业人士之一,代表澳大利亚国家银行(NAB)担任介绍会主讲者。作为NAB建筑风险管理部门的副总监,Julian毫无保留地分享了银行业对当前市场上开发项目的评估选择,还有其相关建筑风险和隐患的看法。

Mr Alex Huang welcomes new guests and regular members of APDA Inc. and shares the founding vision and mission of the association

他在会上提及的风险管理策略对所有在场开发者和建造者显得相当宝贵。当晚,Julian也连同另一位著名的专业人士—国家工程测量公司Napier & Blakeley的总监Craig Smith先生,后者熟练的解说了最近的镀层危机对澳大利亚建筑和保险行业的影响。Craig还提到了在维多利亚州实施的监管程序,以防止建设后的结构隐患,这些问题近期一直占据全国新闻的头版。

Get Active. Beat Dementia. 跃动身心,战胜痴呆

Did you know? 

Dementia is Australia’s second leading cause of death overall, and the leading cause of death for women. There is no cure. Every three seconds someone in the world develops dementia. When you consider the total worldwide cost of dementia was US$818 billion in 2015, if dementia was a country it would be the 18th largest economy! 

What can you do to help? Join us for our annual Memory Walk & Jog event! 

Memory Walk & Jog is Dementia Australia’s biggest national fundraising event. This year we are hoping to raise $1.3 million with over 10,000 participants nationally. 

Walk, jog or run – there’s a Memory Walk & Jog for everyone!

We are coming to you! Memory Walk & Jog is heading to 12 locations nationally in 2020 and four locations in Victoria including Mildura, Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne. We’ve got a distance to suit you whether you walk, jog or run. 

Funds raised will go towards supporting Dementia Australia’s services including for those living with dementia, their families and carers, while at the same time supporting research for future medical breakthroughs and raising much needed awareness. 

Together, we get active, we fundraise, and we step up for people living with dementia to say, “You are not alone!”.

To register or find out more, visit us at or call us on 1300 MWJ MWJ (695 695)

We look forward to seeing you there!
