Advancing Technologies in Strata Design - Beach Shack Scarborough Case Study
Patrick Przeradzki and Dave Wilson
The Strata Manager is facing many challenges in an unprecedented pace of change. How can Designers, Developers and Technology help overcome some of the barriers?
The use of good design principles and technology can help bridge the gap to make the process more manageable. These include building software applications and communication tools.
Architects should consider the needs of Strata Management when designing buildings. We need to work collaboratively to create a smooth transition from construction to strata management. Everyone has a role to play in this journey.
We’ll explore what’s new in Perth building architecture and development, including The Beach Shack in Scarborough, winner of the 2022 WAAA Winconect Apartments Awards for Excellence – Innovation and Technology, designed by Plus Architecture to achieve high environmental efficiency standards and incorporate advanced technologies.
2:20pm - 3:25pm
Service Disrupted: How to Thrive in the New Era of Service
Over time the term “customer service” has been so simplified that its definition has become inaccurate. To change, we need to unlearn what we know about service and re-learn it in a contemporary context.
We must first look at some of the common perceptions that team members have towards their customers. Terms like, ‘demanding’, ‘entitled’, and ‘full of complaints’ need to be shifted, and this can’t be done if we continue to have a dated perception on what customer service is.
It’s the longstanding disconnect between the way customers are perceived, and the appetite for improvement, that has seen service left behind, while businesses and the marketplace advance.
The first part of this session will focus on how customer service has changed and how to catchup to where it needs to be, whilst the second part looks at how we must change to become customer service experts in cultures that serve.
Participants will be empowered to identify core assumptions, overcome controversial views and eliminate ambiguity to stay focused on achieving a service culture and identify how this all fits in the role of a leader.
