BATIMAT is the essential meeting place for the French and international construction industry.
BATIMAT is the essential meeting place for the French and international construction industry. Playing a central role in tackling the energy challenges facing buildings, BATIMAT is the place where the technical solutions emerge that will characterize sustainable construction and renovation projects. BATIMAT is a real springboard for manufacturers who want to launch their technological innovations and massively speeds up the rate at which new ideas and products are adopted.
As well as its professional role, BATIMAT is also the place where the entire profession gets together in a pleasant atmosphere.
At The Heart Of Construction’s Challenges
The 2011 show will be right at the heart of developments in the energy efficiency of buildings.
One of the objectives of the Grenelle de l’Environnement (the French environment initiative) is to spread the concept of the “Low Consumption Building” from 2012 onwards through the adoption of a new set of thermal regulations, the “RT2012”, which will replace the current 2005 thermal regulations.
These new regulations will come into force in the second half of 2011, will result in a major development in technical and architectural approaches on buildings. This development will bring an increase of innovative products and an increasing demand for training from professionals.
BATIMAT 2011 will serve as one of the shop windows for these developments by featuring innovations and model projects by architects and hosting conferences and events. It will enable professionals to find out about the products that will take centre stage tomorrow.
BATIMAT will also speed up progress. For example, another major theme of the 2011 show will be accessibility for persons with restricted mobility. On 1st January 2015, existing buildings that are open to the public and residential buildings will have to comply with the requirements of the new law on accessibility. BATIMAT will feature this theme through conferences, demonstration areas and round tables.
