Austria at North America’s Largest Green BuildingTrade Show

November 26, 2013

Eight Austrian companies showcased the latest innovations at GREENBUILD 2013 in Philadelphia

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Chicago - Austrian Trade Commission recently hosted the following Austrian companies at the Austrian pavilion at GREENBUILD 2013:

Cree GmbH
E2zero Green Building Products
FunderMax GmbH
Innasol GmbH
Loytec electronics GmbH
Luccon Lichtbeton GmbH
Schmid Schrauben Hainfeld GmbH
SHERPA Connection Systems GmbH

The products and technologies introduced at this year’s GREENBUILD included wood solutions for structural members of multi-story buildings, building automation solutions, connection systems for timber constructions, decorative laminated boards and timber products for exterior and interior applications, and translucent concrete for indoor/outdoor applications. One of the Austrian exhibitors put the spotlight on its wood construction system for large construction projects by being included in the official GREENBUILD conference program. The presentation told the story of LCT ONE, an eight story timber office building that was designed and introduced as "a natural change in urban architecture" to our growing cities. Its design and production offer an excellent example of how Austria is introducing modern, industrial building technologies to the US market, and is succeeding in integrating many innovations into a single, game-changing solution.

In an era of glass and steel, the Austrian sustainable construction industry turns to wood as a basic material for construction and thermal insulation. Wood can be the perfect sustainable material; it sucks up CO2 and once cut, it holds it for the life of the building. Austria succeeds in pushing the envelope by using all parts of the tree, from the heartwood to the bark.

In an effort to assist Austrian companies in establishing long-term business partnerships with US firms, the office of ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Chicago, the Austrian Trade Commission, has released its third edition of the publication "Austrian Sustainable Products & Technologies for North America". This directory is a "must-have" for those looking for innovative green building products, technologies and services from Austria.
