24. November 2016

The theme of the 2017 international BauZ! Congress is ‘What might change? Planning 2017-2050.

The choice of topic is a reference to the Paris Agreement of 2015, the treaty seeking to complete the decarbonisation of the global economy by 2050. What has to/could/should/might change in the planning and construction sector so that this goal can be achieved?

This is the question to be addressed by the international BauZ! 2017 Congress, which is set to take place as part of the Bauen & Energie fair in Vienna from 15th17th February 2017. Speakers from Austria, Finland, Canada, Switzerland, Slovakia and the USA will be presenting and leading discussions on the following topics:

  • Cooperation on the basis of shared data
  • Developing a location
  • Buildings as the node between energy supply and energy generation
  • Criteria for buildings that are both future-proof and cost-efficient
  • Considering life-cycles
  • Measuring success, ensuring quality

The event is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, 15th February 2017 with a tour of major new buildings and urban development zones in the Vienna area.

The congress schedule for the next two days includes lectures, specialist workshops, an evening reception and a ‘come together’ session in the trade fair halls.
