The event on June 21st-22nd will be a point of reference for the sectors of real estate, constructions and finance.
Circular economy as a priority for the sector of constructions: this is the core topic of the 2016 edition of REbuild, the fifth edition of the most important trendsetting event in the Italian construction industry, in Riva del Garda from the 21st to the 22nd of June.
“We need to take a fundamental step forward: the main concept in circular constructions is that the idea itself of waste disappears, be it in terms of materials, energy or working time: everything has a value. The convergence of new technologies and a new organizational process allows the construction industry to regenerate the public and private funds which support it, energize our country’s economy, drastically reduce urban pollution, and redefine the national energy balance” explains RE-lab president and REbuild co-founder Thomas Miorin.
RE-lab is a platform for open innovation meant to generate solutions for the real estate market by triggering concrete change in the construction and energy sectors. The initiative is aimed at all operators in the fields of real estate, construction and finance, who will meet to discuss the issue of urban redevelopment with a particular focus on integrated design and building industrialization.
REbuild is one of the core centres of the real estate sector where innovation and new ideas are developed year after year – adds Assoimmobiliare president Aldo Mazzocco – After eight years of crisis, we need a common effort to redesign our offer. Assoimmobiliare is very interested in the signals of change that come from REbuild: our goal is to summarize them and present them to the Government, in the perspective of a revision of the current norms”.
For the 2016 edition, REbuild will also produce its first Outlook by collecting the points of view of the community, in order to better understand the present and define the future direction of the construction industry. It will be a working tool to stimulate the sector with innovative, unpublished and original contents.
The event will have an international dimension thanks to the presence of Don Carter, the director of the Remaking City Institute, and David Cheshire, the AECOM director in charge for sustainability issues.
One of REbuild’s key themes is industrialization: with regard to this point, the Dutch company Energiesprong will be presented by Ron Van Erck, responsible for the European Market. The company’s experience will be commented, integrated and compared with successful Italian models, presented by companies such as Manni Groupe Aakhon. For what concerns the topic of the maximization of energy leverage, talks will be held about the methods, approaches and results of redevelopment processes that can reduce energy consumption up to 80-90%.
