In addition, the National Congress of Advanced Architecture and Construction 4.0 will feature over 560 international experts who will address relevant topics such as inflation, regulation of industrialization, the use of NextGen technologies, collaborative work, and the application of BIM. Vidrioperfil tells us all about it on their blog.
Starting on March 28th and running for three days, the sixth edition of REBUILD, the leading event in the construction industry for those seeking industrial partners for digital, sustainable, and industrialized projects, will take place. During those three days, the event will bring together more than 20,000 professionals from all over Spain, turning Madrid into the technological capital of construction.
More than 500 leading exhibitor companies in the building market, including ABB, ACR, Aedas Homes, Aldes, Aliaxis, Alpac, Arquima, Arboretum Haus, Baublock, BAXI, BMI Group, Danosa, Egoin, Evowall, ExSitu, Faveker, FINSA, Grupo Cetosa, Grupo Lobe, Holcim, Hormipresa, Jung, Leviat, Lignum Tech, Mitsubishi, Peronda, Ramón Soler, Schneider, Siber, Sika, Sodeca, Soler&Palau, Soprema, Tabihaus, Thermochip, Viuda de Sainz, Zehnder, and Zennio will come together at REBUILD. Attendees will be able to learn firsthand about the latest innovations and technologies in lighting, interiors, kitchens, bathrooms, enclosures, flooring and surfaces, facades, energy efficiency, air conditioning, home automation, digital solutions, BIM, and industrialized construction systems in 2D or 3D.
Important administrations such as the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, the Community of Madrid, the Madrid City Council, and the Government of Aragon, the latter being highlighted as an innovative European region in 2023 for its initiatives in social housing and sustainability, will participate in REBUILD.
The president of REBUILD and CEO of AEDAS Homes, David Martinez, along with the director of REBUILD, Gema Traveria, the director of the National Congress of Advanced Architecture and Construction 4.0, Ignasi Pérez-Arnal, and the general director of Nebext, the organizing company, Alberto Planas, have presented the main topics that will be addressed in the current edition. The event will take place in two pavilions of IFEMA Madrid, with an expanded exhibition area and maintaining its focused approach.
According to Gema Traveria, the growth of REBUILD is due to the demonstrated commitment to the sector year after year, promoting a more industrialized, digital, and sustainable construction. At REBUILD 2023, professionals involved in the building value chain will find solutions, materials, or technologies to carry out new projects, making the event the reference meeting point. In addition, the Congress program, which will be held in the 7 auditoriums of this new edition, will be the forum for learning and inspiration. According to Traveria, more than 75% of the profiles attending the event are “decision makers” with real needs, so REBUILD is the place where many business opportunities are closed, and synergies are created to stimulate the industry as a whole.
The National Congress of Advanced Architecture and Construction 4.0 will bring together developers, builders, architects, engineers, designers, and opinion leaders.
REBUILD will host simultaneous conferences in seven auditoriums, where more than 560 experts will present the most innovative projects and success stories in each segment of the building industry, such as housing, hotels, shops, offices, healthcare institutions, and institutional establishments. In addition, a specific agenda has been prepared for each professional profile, including developers, builders, architects, architecture technicians, investors, engineers, installers, and designers, in order to provide them with a more personalized and focused experience on their needs.
According to Ignasi Pérez-Arnal, director of the National Congress of Advanced Architecture and Construction 4.0, “we have managed to organize the largest congress in Europe on building with the aim of exploring the future of our sector and reviewing urgent regulatory issues such as the use of wood and financing of industrialized construction. Our intention is for all professionals involved to be aware of the trends and challenges that are happening or coming in each stage. In addition, the keynote speakers who will be present at REBUILD are the latest winners of national awards in Spain and France, which means we will have perspectives of great value.”
During the Congress, the need to establish a specific legal framework for industrialized construction, which currently represents only 2% of buildings in Spain, will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of proper management of NextGen funds, as well as the promotion of the use of renewable energy and collaboration among the different actors in the sector. Likewise, challenges such as the lack of talent, the BIM methodology, and the current state of the residential rental market (“Build to rent”) will be addressed.
David Martínez, CEO of AEDAS Homes and president of REBUILD, has pointed out that the sector is in the process of transformation and that the shortage of qualified labor is affecting the industry. However, he believes that the shift from a traditional system to a more efficient, faster, and higher quality one, such as industrialized construction, will further boost the housing market in Spain. Additionally, Martínez has highlighted the lack of residential housing in the country and has pointed out that the industrialized format is a viable solution to ensure affordable housing for young people and families with special needs.
Prominent professionals from the architecture and real estate innovation sector will be present as speakers at the event. Among them are Carlos Lamela, Executive Chairman of Estudio Lamela; José Manuel Toral, from Peris+Toral Arquitectos; Sara de Giles, partner at MGM Arquitectos and internationally renowned architect and doctor; Borja Ferrater, Founding Partner of the Office of Architecture in Barcelona; Teresa Riesgo, Secretary General of Innovation at the Ministry of Science and Innovation; Fermín Vázquez, Architect at b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos; Javier Sirvent, Technology Evangelist & Polymata at Atlas Digital; Anna Guanter, Head of Real Estate Innovation at Culmia; Íñigo Robles, Senior Pre-Construction Manager at Amazon; Alba Fernández, lawyer specialized in urbanism and real estate law; and Felipe Pich-Aguilera, Architect and Founder of Picharchitects. All of them will share their visions on how to promote and achieve a more industrialized, digital and sustainable construction.
