As well as in the presentations by the exhibitors, the key themes of BAU 2019 (Processes + Architecture, Living + Working, Systems + Constructions, Light + Buildings) will be explored and illustrated in a number of special shows, from different angles and focusing on different aspects. For this BAU is working with well known partners. Here´s an overview.
“Building components TripleS”
Under the motto of “Building components TripleS—Smart / Safe / Secure”, the ift Rosenheim is presenting the use of smart building components, drives, sensors and security systems, illustrating this with a mock-up of a living and working environment. The focus is on ease of use, installation and correct procedure as regards requirements, compliance and safety for electrical building components.
The show also looks at the problems of complex applications, such as anti-burglary systems, fire and smoke prevention, provision for power cuts, misuse and securing emergency exits. Experts from the ift Rosenheim will be pointing out the normative and legal bases as well as new guidelines and testing procedures.
“Spaces for living in the future”
In the special show “Spaces for living: digital, sustainable, smart”, the Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance is presenting innovative products and solutions from research conducted by the Fraunhofer Institutes. The themes are: Digitalization—from BIM to the digital twin; New sustainability—Recycling building materials and renewables; Smart buildings and resilient districts. Innovative and sustainable solutions are the answer to meeting the ever growing demands on buildings. Cross-sector thinking will become ever more important as well as taking an integrated approach. The Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance has taken on the task of systematically tackling the innovations gap. Under the umbrella of the 14 Fraunhofer Institutes, different specialist competences are combined in a drive to offer the building industry interdisciplinary solutions.
“Sustainable is the new normal”
Sustainable is the new normal. At least it should be. Because a glance at the most urgent global challenges such as climate change and dwindling resources is enough to realize that in the field of building in particular effective answers are needed. At the DGNB special show, ideas and solutions will be presented on forward-looking themes such as the circular economy and strategies for climate-neutral building—so that sustainability will become the new normal. Architects, planners, building clients and manufacturers can get an overview here of current developments in sustainable building and gather information on what they can do in practice to ensure sustainable does become the new normal.
This special show by the GGT Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gerontotechnik® focuses on the subject of smart living. It explores the interaction between human beings, buildings and technology, and, using a mock-up apartment, it shows what it takes to plan and fit out a smart building. One that suits all the occupants, through all phases of their lives. In line with the motto of: Comfort for today and provision for tomorrow, the trade fair visitors can see a living environment that is supported by smart technology and designed for all the generations.
BAU is the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, the largest and most important event for the industry. The next BAU will take place on the exhibition grounds of Messe München from January 14 to 19, 2019. Some 2,200 exhibitors from around 45 countries, and more than 250,000 visitors from all over the world are expected to attend.
