Nearly 40% of the annual global greenhouse gas emissions are generated by the building sector. Twenty years from now, buildings could be a lot more energy efficient. What digital technologies and new practices have made their way into the building sector and what are the economics behind smart planning?
Professionals from the public and private sector as well as research institutions, developers and financing institutions from the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and Switzerland will come together at the Smart Builders’ Summit and discuss the future of the building industry.
The event is organised by the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN) and BABLE. Participants have a specific interest in the opportunities of digital technologies in planning and operating building assets, are keen on engaging internationally and see potential in cross-national cooperation in the construction sector. We’d like to spark cooperation in the field of digital construction and encourage the collaboration of our industries.
The different formats including short expert lectures, panel discussions, workshops and informal exchanges are designed to help you discuss not only current developments in the building sector but also joint opportunities and future partnerships in the exciting field of future digital building.

Smart City Manager, Municipality EindhovenTOPIC: Eindhoven challenged the market to unburden existing private home-owners to target for zero energy housing
"Updating your private house should be just as easy as ordering a Billy Cabinet at IKEA."
Professor and director of the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE)
Deputy Executive Director of the Cluster of Excellence IntCDC
Vice Rector for Research, University of Stuttgart
"The detrimental environmental impact and lack of productivity coupled with the multifaceted relevance of architecture clearly indicates that we urgently need new approaches to design and construction. Digital technologies make it possible to address these challenges in novel ways."
Drees & SommerTOPIC: 10 Theses on digitalisation of city districts, the Blue Way
"Smart Cities, energy transition and digital transformation mean change management. New possibilities for services also mean rethinking and redesigning planning processes and planning goals. How planning goals are set is more important than coming to terms with technical challenges."

"When is a digitized building smart and where does the question of meaningfulness in the technical equipment arise?"
