CIB was established in 1953 as an Association whose objectives were to stimulate and facilitate international cooperation and information exchange between governmental research institutes in the building and construction sector, with an emphasis on those institutes engaged in technical fields of research.

CIB has since developed into a worldwide network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organizations with a research, university, industry or government background, who collectively are active in all aspects of research and innovation for building and construction. Within the Commission W062 of CIB, the attention goes to the field of water supply and drainage for buildings.


Melbourne is the coastal capital of the southeastern Australian state of Victoria. At the city’s centre is the modern Federation Square development, with plazas, bars, and restaurants by the Yarra River.

Melbourne is a hip, dynamic metropolis, with an exciting city centre, inner-city neighborhoods that are full of unique character, and lush green parks and mountain ranges where you can enjoy Australian nature at its finest.

With Melbourne’s combination of world-class dining, art galleries, homegrown fashion and a packed sports calendar, it’s no surprise Victoria’s capital is regarded the world’s most livable city!

Melbourne may be known for its fickle weather – the city has been described as having four seasons in one day – but it can still be enjoyed all year round. Melbourne warms up in summer with mean temperatures between 14 – 25.3°C (57.2 – 77.5°F). These months are dry, with occasional hot spells that can last more than three days. Melbourne’s top temperatures are usually in January and February, when temperatures can occasionally soar past 30°C (86°F).

Hot spots to see whilst in Melbourne include:

  • Street Art: Melbourne is very well-known for its street art, being considered one of the street art capitals of the world.
  • Flinders Street Station: The main entrance to Flinders Street Station is a picturesque cultural symbol of Melbourne you’ll find on many postcards or tourist brochures: this gorgeous building was opened in 1910, and it is listed on the Victorian heritage register.
  • Botanical Gardens: The Botanic Gardens are walking distance from the city centre, and offer an oasis of calm, peace and greenery just outside of the urban bustle.
  • Melbourne Cricket Ground: Home to the Melbourne Cricket Club, the stadium also plays host to the wildly popular AFL, as well as international soccer, rugby and various other events
  • Taste of Italy: The Lygon Street Italian Precinct, also known as Little Italy, is a gorgeous leafy street running through several Melbournian suburbs.
  • The Dandenong Ranges: The Dandenong Ranges is a gorgeous mountain range on the outskirts of Melbourne, and it’s a perfect spot for walkers, cyclists, hikers, nature-lovers and bird-watchers.
  • DFO (Direct Factory Outlets) – South Wharf
    Located only one minute walk from Pan Pacific – here you will find the latest fashion outlets without the huge price tags.
  • Crown Casino: Located 5min walk around the River’s edge towards Spencer Street, Crown Casino is a destination where every experience is designed to indulge your senses with a little something extra. Featuring loads of dining, designer shopping, gaming and entertainment all under the one roof.
  • Southbank: Southbank draws a sophisticated crowd to its cultural venues, which include the Malthouse theater, based in a restored brewery, and the state-of-the-art Melbourne Recital Centre which hosts classical concerts. The lively riverside promenades feature al fresco fine dining and cargo sheds housing craft-beer bars.
  • Federation Square: Home to major cultural attractions, world-class events, tourism experiences and an exceptional array of restaurants, bars and specialty stores, this modern piazza has become the heart and soul of Melbourne. It covers an area of 3.2 ha at the intersection of Flinders Street and Swanston Street built above busy railway lines and across the road from Flinders Street station.
  • Bourke Street Mall: Take a deep breath and dive into the bustling hive of commerce that is the Bourke Street Mall, emerging hours later, arms laden with shopping bags, ears reverberating with the sounds of the street’s lively buskers. Melbourne’s retail heart links Swanston and Elizabeth streets and is only open to trams and pedestrians. Listen out for the bells of approaching trams as you drift between department stores and the flagships of fashion retailers.
