Under the motto “KNOWLEDGE Creates Living spaces“, the NordBau 2019 focuses on the following topics: “Sports Facilities for the Future” as well as “Creating Living Spaces and SmartHomes for the Home”. In addition, the “Part 2 of Digital Construction Site” will occupy a large space at the fair, as the networking of planning data, machine technology and construction site is also becoming increasingly important for small and medium-sized enterprises.
Sports Facilities for the Future – meeting the needs of the young and old!
One focus of the upcoming NordBau will be on the renovation of sports facilities and sports facilities for the future. This involves both the renovation of the open space areas, as well as the construction of sports facilities. Due to the numerous new trends in sports and the high investment backlog in sports facilities, when renovating, converting or constructing new buildings, the traditional needs of those interested in sports, the increasingly important inclusion, as well as the new sports for older and young people should be taken into account. In particular, the fact that sports facilities in the open space and in clubs also function as important meeting and integration centers should be given attention in the proposals and planning. Together with the Technical University of Lübeck, the State Sports Association and other partners, Hall 8 of NordBau represent a central point of contact, with sample modules, models and planning examples on an area of around 400 square meters. For the open-space design sector, 1:1 presentation sections for the renovation of running tracks and natural tracks, correctly laid out boule lanes, as well as a section of a mountain bike course (Pumptrack) can be seen. There is an overview of exhibitors at NordBau, on the subject of building renovation in connection with sports facilities. Furthermore, in Hall 8, numerous exhibitors from the field of tiles and stoneware will complement the spectrum for the renovation of sports facilities.
Designing living spaces and SmartHome for the home
Due to the increasing digitization of home automation control, there are significant benefits for homeowners, property owners and housing associations: the control of heating and ventilation technology can reduce energy consumption, and with digitization burglary protection can be implemented in a versatile and preventative manner.
But digitization now also includes other areas such as special tiles or floor coverings. This allows sensors to ensure that older people, for example, can live safely and longer in their own home. NordBau offers a platform for visitors, manufacturers and clients to be able to exchange information on this important, future-oriented topic.
The digital construction site part 2 – construction network hand in hand!
At last year’s Nordbau, the topic “digital construction site” from the Association of the Construction Industry, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering e.V. (VDBUM), in cooperation with the Bau-ABC Rostrup training center and the construction industry association Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein was elaborately staged with great success.
VDBUM managing director, Dieter Schnittjer, pointed out that the implementation of the digital requirements for all construction companies can only succeed if the construction site employees are comprehensively informed on the way towards a digital age. For this reason, the topic continues at this year’s NordBau as “digital construction site Part 2”.
The main focus must be on the qualification of the employees, so that digitization can lead to more cost efficiency and occupational safety.
Meeting point for craftsmen and construction companies
On the open-air site at the South Entrance of the NordBau grounds, you will find commercial vehicles construction with workshop equipment, load securing devices and mounted cranes. For years now, this area has become a popular meeting place for craftsmen and contractors, so much so that the number of exhibitors will increase considerably this year. In the North outdoor area, the lovers and users of heavy machinery will find their products: the most well-known manufacturers in the sector will be represented at the fair in the center of Schleswig-Holstein and will present trends and innovations there. The construction machines for the future will not only become more compact and efficient, they will also be more flexible and energy-efficient.
Symposia and training sessions
The painters and varnishers of Schleswig-Holstein will once again organize their annual and performance competition on four days of the fair, involving the visitors in Hall 8. In addition, the Schleswig-Holstein State Association of roofers will hold its ceremonial celebration with about 500 guests on September 13, 2019 as part of NordBau. Far more than 50 symposia by trade associations, professional associations and municipalities underline the seminar character of the largest compact trade fair on construction in northern Europe. Two thirds of the conferences are recognized as official training events by the Chamber of Architects and Engineers!
Figures, dates and facts
Last year, NordBau once again impressively demonstrated its position as the most important construction fair in Northern Germany and the entire Baltic Sea region, on an open area of more than 69,000 square meters, and over 20,000 square meters of hall space. More than 800 exhibitors from 13 countries informed about 64,000 visitors on the new trends in the construction industry. A total of 4,300 conference participants attended the 50 symposia! Two thirds of the symposia are recognized by the Chamber of Architects and Engineers as an official training event. Via NordBau, exhibitors have since 1956 been able to reach trade visitors who visit the trade fair for professional reasons, as well as interested end customers (public and private clients). Thus NordBau maintains its high-level of attractiveness and magnetic effect for all those interested in construction as well as those working in the construction industry. In addition, NordBau has been cooperating for over 40 years with the partner country Denmark which sees the trade fair as the basis for the German and European markets.
The 64th edition of NordBau will take place from the 11th to 15th September 2019 at the Holstenhallen in Neumünster.
