Sustainable construction through examples

During an event organised in early May by DEBELUX AHK, Neobuild, and Luxinnovation, concrete examples of best practices in sustainable construction were presented in the field.

The potential of sustainable construction in Luxembourg and Germany was the subject of an event organised in early May by the Belgian-Luxembourg-German Chamber of Commerce (AHK debelux).

The topic is crucial, considering that, according to a United Nations study, the construction sector is responsible for approximately 37% of CO2 emissions worldwide. Hence, there are numerous reflections and initiatives aimed at leading the construction sector towards a lower carbon footprint.

During this event, a forum was organised with selected companies from Germany and Luxembourg, in collaboration with Neobuild and Luxinnovation. It was thus possible to present the latest innovations and insights into how this transition to sustainable construction is being conducted in Luxembourg.

 "It was interesting to highlight novelties such as the implementation of digital planning systems or the use of natural-based products in construction," explains Ralf Köhler, Wood Cluster Manager at Luxinnovation. "Construction materials are increasingly incorporating biological materials, such as insulation products, floor or ceiling coverings."

The forum also allowed for deepening business relationships among participants, becoming acquainted with new construction products and methods, and discussing potential joint partnerships.

A second day was dedicated to on-site visits. An in-depth insight into intelligent digital production was made possible at LEKO Labs in Foetz, specialising in robot-assisted prefabrication of wooden components.

Alongside the general planning and architecture firm FAT Architects, the discovery of the versatile hall Neischmelz in Dudelange, a typical example of modular wooden construction, provided an opportunity for the sixty participants to learn more about the details of the circular construction method using bio-sourced materials.

"The high level of interest and willingness to participate from the entire construction industry demonstrates the success and appeal of innovative and modular construction," states Mr. Köhler. "The event also facilitated networking between companies and reflection on potential projects."

The theme of sustainable construction will also be at the heart of another event organised on 26 May, jointly with LIST, Neobuild, and Luxinnovation.
