AustriaN Pavilion at buildNZ / designEX 2015 &                             New Zealand-Austrian Networking event at BLUM NZ 

14 July 2015

Last month Auckland was the point of interest for building professionals and industry innovators from all over the world: The leading trade event for building & construction industry - the buildnz/designex 2015 - took place from 21-23 June.

As the demand for sustainable building solutions in Australia and New Zealand is growing constantly the buildnz/designex 2015 was the ideal chance for 9 Austrian companies to present their innovative, energy-efficient and green solutions at the Austria-Pavilion. 

The culmination was our annual New Zealand-Austrian networking event. 

During the course of the evening our host, Mr Michael Hawkins, Director of the event sponsors Blum New Zealand, gave a first-hand account of his company´s impressive success story. Mr Michael Hawkins presented Blum´s latest innovations which have been created to inspire homeowners, designers and industry experts. Especially the automatic “Servo-Drive” opening- and closing system impressed the 60 participants.

As another special highlight we were proud to present the Energy Globe Award for New Zeland to this year´s winner, Mr Alan Good of The Stone Paper Company. The Stone Paper Company´s “Rockstock” paper is made mainly of ground waste marble and can be used for various purposes without the disadvantage of conventional paper since less energy and no trees are used for its production. 

With gourmet finger food, premium wines crafted by the Austrian winemaker Rudi Bauer of Quartz Reef Estate, refreshing Austrian Gösser Beer as well as Almdulder herbal lemonade the successful weekend came to an end. 

The AC Sydney Team is looking forward to coming back in the forthcoming year.
