The Intermix Approach: Activating the Smart Precinct


Mirvac has unveiled a new discussion paper on the future of smart precincts, ahead of WORKTECH 2017 in Sydney this week.

In the discussion paper, launched this morning entitled ‘The Intermix Approach: Activating the Smart Precinct’, Mirvac outlines leading development approaches and best practice models for digitally enabled districts, or ‘smart precincts’ that will shape our cities.

Paul Edwards, General Manager of Workplace Experiences at Mirvac, said developers must start to look beyond the footprint of the building they are developing to ensure they create smart, enabled precincts.

The discussion paper defines eight Intermix principles, including: One connected community; Shaping the sharing economy; Fluid boundaries and flow; The curated precinct; Flexible space matters; Makerspace culture; The wellbeing dividend; and Destination, not dead zone.

‘The Intermix Approach: Activating the Smart Precinct’ discussion paper was launched at a breakfast briefing at Mirvac’s award winning headquarters at 200 George Street, Sydney, alongside an interactive masterclass with research scientist, Dr Kristine Dery, MIT Sloan, and Philip Ross, as part of WORKTECH 17 Sydney.
