BauZ! 2016 – Vienna Congress on Sustainable Building

20. October 2015

New Stuff from Old Buildings: the international congress BauZ! 2016 will focus on questions surrounding building usage in practice.

A building has reached the end of its present utilization phase – because it is no longer needed the way it used to be, because it is no longer technically sound or because it is outdated. What happens next? Rehabilitation, conversion or recycling? The international congress BauZ! 2016 , which will be held in Vienna from 27 to 29 January 2016 in the framework of the Bauen & Energie trade fair, will be addressing these and other questions related to how buildings are used in practice.

Speakers from Austria, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Canada and Spain will report on:

  • Rehabilitation policies
  • Temporary utilizations
  • Rehabilitation in the course of the preservation of historic sites
  • Financing models
  • The economic potential of and technical opportunities for recovery
  • Daylight and glazing
  • New resources and tools for rehabilitation

The event will kick off on Wednesday, 27 January 2016, with a field visit to major new buildings and urban-development quarters in the Vienna area.

Over the following two days the congress will offer presentations, a panel discussion, workshops on special topics, an evening reception and a come-together in the halls of the trade fair premises.

Further information on the BauZ! Congress 2016 including registration and the programme is available on the event website
