65. NORDBAU NEUMÜNSTER | 9 - 13 September 2020 | Wednesday - Sunday

(Neumünster) From the 11th to 15th September 2019, the 64th edition of NordBau will take place in the heart of Schleswig-Holstein, at the Holstenhallen Neumünster exhibition grounds - a meeting point and exchange platform for the construction industry and all construction managers in Northern Europe!

Meeting the requirements of new trend sports and strengthening social cohesion with "sports facilities for the future"

One of the main focuses of this year's NordBau is the renovation of sports facilities and the sports facilities for the future. The decisive impulse for this special exhibition was triggered by the very well-attended lecture event organized by the Schleswig-Holstein Regional sports association on the renovation of sports facilities at the last NordBau. The investment backlog at sports facilities is vast. Many buildings and facilities are outdated and need to be renovated. The Ministry of the Interior in Schleswig-Holstein, which is responsible for sports, and the regional sports association are ready to take up finding in the regions of hundreds of millions, in the coming years. On this occasion, we need to seize the opportunity during renovations and in new buildings, not only to produce the functionality for traditional sports offers, but rather to prepare facilities so that they correspond to the changing trends in sports. Modern, contemporary and future-oriented buildings and facilities for the young and old, for people in the countryside, as well as in the cities. Important topics such as inclusion, integration and simultaneous offers for children and parents must be considered. The point that sports facilities in open space and in clubs are important meeting places for social cohesion should be given greater attention in proposals and planning. Together with the Technical University of Lübeck, the Schleswig-Holstein States Sports Association and numerous other partners, a central point of contact sample modules, models and planning examples will be created in Hall 8, on an area of around 400 square meters. Andrea Schauließ, of the Department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Lübeck, said: "The special exhibition "Sports facilities for the future" in itself should already be an eye-catcher as an exhibition stand and give visitors and representatives of associations as well as municipal sponsors impulses and suggestions for the implementation of renovation measures, but also have visions for the future. We invite the visitors to stay and get informed at the joint stand. They will gain insights into sports facilities for the future, the renovation of new buildings and sports buildings, as well as information on sports fields with a realignment to the future needs and trends of the people.

For more than six decades, the largest compact building trade fair has been the meeting place for the construction industry and all those responsible for construction in northern Europe!

Under the motto "KNOWLEDGE Creates Living spaces", the NordBau 2019 focuses on the following topics: "Sports Facilities for the Future" as well as "Creating Living Spaces and SmartHomes for the Home". In addition, the "Part 2 of Digital Construction Site" will occupy a large space at the fair, as the networking of planning data, machine technology and construction site is also becoming increasingly important for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Sports Facilities for the Future - meeting the needs of the young and old!

One focus of the upcoming NordBau will be on the renovation of sports facilities and sports facilities for the future. This involves both the renovation of the open space areas, as well as the construction of sports facilities. Due to the numerous new trends in sports and the high investment backlog in sports facilities, when renovating, converting or constructing new buildings, the traditional needs of those interested in sports, the increasingly important inclusion, as well as the new sports for older and young people should be taken into account. In particular, the fact that sports facilities in the open space and in clubs also function as important meeting and integration centers should be given attention in the proposals and planning. Together with the Technical University of Lübeck, the State Sports Association and other partners, Hall 8 of NordBau represent a central point of contact, with sample modules, models and planning examples on an area of around 400 square meters. For the open-space design sector, 1:1 presentation sections for the renovation of running tracks and natural tracks, correctly laid out boule lanes, as well as a section of a mountain bike course (Pumptrack) can be seen. There is an overview of exhibitors at NordBau, on the subject of building renovation in connection with sports facilities. Furthermore, in Hall 8, numerous exhibitors from the field of tiles and stoneware will complement the spectrum for the renovation of sports facilities.

Designing living spaces and SmartHome for the home

Due to the increasing digitization of home automation control, there are significant benefits for homeowners, property owners and housing associations: the control of heating and ventilation technology can reduce energy consumption, and with digitization burglary protection can be implemented in a versatile and preventative manner.

But digitization now also includes other areas such as special tiles or floor coverings. This allows sensors to ensure that older people, for example, can live safely and longer in their own home. NordBau offers a platform for visitors, manufacturers and clients to be able to exchange information on this important, future-oriented topic.

With the special shows "safe@home - security and smart home at home" and the "digital construction site", the 63rd edition of NordBau 2018 sent a distinct message, which found great approval, not only among the exhibitors: With 63,800 visitors and 800 exhibitors from 13 countries, the biggest compact exhibition for construction in the North European Baltic Sea region closed its doors on Sunday.

What had been indicated at the opening ceremony by the new Chief Executive Officer of the German Construction Association, Dieter Babiel; his Excellency the Ambassador of Denmark, Friis Arne Petersen from Berlin and the Minister President of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther, continued seamlessly through the exhibition. The topics in particular preoccupied all responsible persons in the construction industry: the progressive digitization in the construction industry, the shortage of skilled workers and intelligent solutions for saving energy, cost efficiency in both private and professional environments. 

The digital construction site - when construction networks goes hand in hand!

A major focus at this year's NordBau was the challenges that a digital construction site entails for all those involved, from the craftsman to the designers and to the constructors. The level of knowledge about digital construction planning and execution is very different among those in charge of constructions.

From the 5th to the 9th of September, 2018, NordBau’s 63rd edition will take place in the center of Schleswig-Holstein, at the Holstenhallen exhibition site in Neumünster – A meeting point and exchange platform for the construction industry and all construction managers in Northern Europe!
