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.
