Sustainability and innovation at Construmat 19 March 2024

An extensive programme of activities will make Construmat 2024 the ideal forum for debate and knowledge in the construction industry, focusing on sustainability and innovation as major themes. 

From 21st – 23rd May, the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via venue will host the 23rd edition of Construmat where innovation, sustainability, industrialised construction, wood and concrete construction will be major talking points, through conferences to masterclasses, forums and talks.

In this sense, it is worth noting the celebration of the Sustainable Building Congress, a congress that will have 50 presentations, 15 round tables and 120 speakers, which aims to highlight the initiatives developed to minimise the environmental impact of construction activity and promote more sustainable and responsible construction. Decarbonisation and the circular economy, digital solutions and technologies, as well as industrial construction systems will also be major themes of this congress, highlighting the best practices and sector innovations.

Show organisers have also highlighted a 50% increase in exhibition space in comparison to the last edition. 

A new edition of the prestigious Construmat Awards, curated by the Mies van der Rohe Foundation and incorporating the public award for the first time, completes the programme of Construmat 2024 activities.
