Welcome to ADEB
(Architects Designers Engineers Builders )
Jazcorp Australia ADEB (Architects Designers Engineers Builders) was initially established in 2009. Founded by Managing Director Lynn Gabriel, the organisation's Head Office is based in Western Australia.
ADEB liaises directly with Government representatives, Industry Experts, University professors, Law Firms, Associations and Institutes and carefully researches industry challenges to include changes in policy, standards, codes and legislation - and communicates these changes at events held across the country.
Continuous Professional Development Workshops, industry challenges, and seminars are held regularly throughout the year to ensure ongoing learning, education and information sharing is maintained for the ADEB Network
Our Story (brief)
The first Building Industry event was held at Crown Perth in 2009, where founder and Managing Director Lynn Gabriel coordinated an event for the Timber and Building industries with over 100 delegates in attendance.
The event was designed to address the ongoing issue of a menacing bug (ie European House Borer) which was destroying pine timbers used mainly for roofing . A panel was invited to include the Department of Agriculture, the then Building Commission and Director from HIA. The event was successful which led to further research and events held in WA and across the country. This multi-discipline approach was well received by the industry and the network expanded rapidly
The ADEB event team has since expanded under Lynn's guide with over 18 staff in WA and NSW
Further events were held to include Changes in the Energy Efficiency code, National Construction Code changes (the Australian building Codes Board provided a license to Jazcorp Australia ADEB to host Tutorials nationally). The focus remained on building codes, compliance and addressing challenges across the industry
Seminars also included waterproofing challenges and structural solutions - with topics on Defects in Construction held in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Canberra.
