Sustainable choices 2020

There are a lot of possibilities and dilemmas in relation to sustainable buildings and architecture in 2020 – and how do you make the right choices? Which materials do you choose, do you dare to choose the new non-tested materials, and are contractors and consumers willing to pay the price for sustainability? When we ask the construction industry about the biggest challenges in relation to sustainable construction in 2020, the answer is the difficult choices and occurring dilemmas.


Get usable and specific knowledge about sustainable construction

At Centralværkstedet in Aarhus, Building Green facilitate a focus on the overall theme sustainable choices 2020. Through 3 sub-themes you get an overview of the typical choices and dilemmas: material selection and measurability • bringing the past into the future • the demanded sustainability in the future

Over 2 days, you can experience more than 80 speakers on 3 stages and 70 exhibitors of sustainable solutions to the construction industry. You get inspiration to all the dilemmas and choices you can experience, when you engage in sustainable construction. You also get specific and usable knowledge in order to easier make the sustainable choices. Remember your notebook!

The demanded sustainability

Our consumption, life and culture behaviors are changing continuously, and it can therefore be difficult to build for the future. Which sustainable elements will be demanded in the future? What will the consumers demand from this time on? How much room do we want and need in our homes? Will we be sharing cars, kitchens, toilets, vegetables garden etc.? At Building Green, you get a presentation of the latest tendencies, and you get different suggestions for the sustainable trends of the future and the demand within sustainable construction and architecture

Hear more about accommodation in the future, sharing economy, waste of square metres, social sustainability and other trends. 

Bringing the past into the future

Quality and durability equal sustainability, and quality buildings equal sustainable buildings. But how do we build in high quality with a long durability? Is building with old architectural values in better quality than the building of today? At Building Green, we will look at the possibilities for bringing the past choices into the future and renew them to accommodate the present use. You get knowledge of which elements and building methods from the past that can benefit construction in present day and in the future.

Get inspiration from the past to the sustainable construction in the future.

Explore the full programme

At Centralværkstedet in Aarhus, you can experience Main Stage, Central Stage and the Go Green stage. All of them will be full of inspiring keynotes that zoom in on sustainable choices. You can also experience interesting debates with key players in the industry and a lot of other activities. The activities are all centered around this year’s theme and sub-themes.

Material selection and measurability

Recently, there has been many discussions about the wide selection of materials and the sustainability, and it can be difficult to choose the right materials for the different projects and sub-components in a project. What do you have to consider when choosing materials? How do you make sure that you choose the right ones? Which materials are the most sustainable in which projects? Do you choose the lesser tested materials? And what about carbon footprint, measurability and LCA? At Building Green, you get an overview of the different materials, material selection and the measurability.

Join Building Green and join the material discussions.

I’m a resident of Aarhus, but this was my first attendance of a Building Green event. I must say that I found it most insightful, and encouraging too. It was a really great selection of speakers. So thank you to all of the Building Green team
