67th NordBau Neumünster devotes special attention to currently important topics of building with partners and exhibitors and provides orientation!

  • “What is to be done for property owners with the new energy transition law?”
  •  “Building and finishing with wood – healthy living and climate-friendly”.

as well as the cross-cutting special theme of the fair:

  • “H2 hydrogen technology / energy infrastructure in construction” – hands-on.

(Neumünster) From September 7 to 11, 2022, NordBau will take place at the Holstenhallen Neumünster exhibition center in Schleswig-Holstein and has been the meeting place for the construction industry and all those responsible for construction in the northern half of Germany and its neighbouring Scandinavian countries for over six decades.

The demand in the outdoor area with the construction machinery, construction equipment, commercial vehicles and municipal technology as well as in the halls with tools, building materials, building elements and especially with heating and energy technology as well as with tiles, bathrooms and kitchens is good and increases with more and more relaxations of the pandemic rules. After a year of cancellation in 2020, NordBau was able to restart last year while still under pandemic conditions.

Representatives of real estate and homeowners call for a comprehensive consultation point regarding the new energy transition and climate protection law at the fair in Hall 7.

The leading associations “Haus & Grund“, the “Arbeitsgemeinschaft für zeitgemäßes Bauen“ and the “Verbraucherzentrale SH“ have pointed out an urgent need to inform private homeowners as well as landlords of apartments and owners of commercial properties.

Therefore together with the SH Sanitary, Heating and Air Conditioning Association and the initiators. A central advice stand, the heating and energy technology exhibition area, will be set up in Hall 7 specifically for this purpose at the NordBau.

Homeowners and the skilled trades will be able to obtain comprehensive information about the upcoming changes to the newly adopted Energy Transition and Climate Protection Act, which must be implemented from July 2022. Here, particular attention must be paid to the new requirements for installations for regenerative energies when replacing defective heating appliances. Precaution and planning are essential conditions to counter cost-intensive surprises in the event of equipment failure. The exhibitors and advising specialists are prepared to address and discuss this topic.

Together with the industry, the Holzbauzentrum Schleswig-Holstein is organizing a large special show in Hall 8 on “Building and finishing with wood”.

“Healthy living” and “climate-friendly” are the fundamental aspects for building with wood or finishing and furnishing interiors with wood. Sustainability and comfort are important to those who favour this natural building material.

The special exhibition shows the use of the raw material up to the installation for decision makers as well as for the processing craftsmen. Industry partners will be on hand with the latest processing, screwing and joining techniques for carpenters, roofers, joiners and interior designers.

Flooring and wood variations will provide ideas for interior design reflecting the zeitgeist at the special show, which covers around 600 square meters.

“H2 hydrogen technology and the associated energy infrastructure can be crucial in transforming the way we procure energy.”

For more than a year and a half, NordBau has been preparing for this special topic together with leading pioneering companies in the construction industry and research institutions in pipeline construction, as well as ministries and interest groups.

For this topic, the focus is on creating a “hands-on” information and advice center at the trade fair.

According to statements by the Schleswig-Holstein Association of Municipalities, as a partner of the special theme, voluntary and full-time representatives of cities and municipalities as well as their employees have a high level of demand for information. How can hydrogen be produced? How can it be stored and transported, and how can it be used as an energy carrier? Which pipeline networks can be used? How are they to be upgraded if the heating in the house is to be operated with hydrogen in the future? What are the realistic time frames for implementation with hydrogen in industry, mobility and heating? Who as a company is already turning to this technology today?

The entire Hall 6, which is directly adjacent to the exhibition area for construction machinery and equipment, will be available as a start-up and presentation area for the special topic.

There, a model for the generation of hydrogen, for transport or storage, and for conversion into energy will be set up by the Institut für Rohrleitungsbau (Institute for Pipeline Construction) at the Fachhochschule Oldenburg (Oldenburg University of Applied Sciences) in cooperation with the construction company Friedrich Vorwerk: Hydrogen technology at your fingertips.

Figures, data and facts
With around 69,000 square meters of outdoor exhibition space and over 20,000 square meters of indoor exhibition space, NordBau is considered the most important compact construction trade fair in northern Europe and the entire Baltic Sea region. Annually up to 800 exhibitors from 13 countries meet about 63,000 visitors. More than 50 seminars and events register a total of 4,300 conference participants, with two-thirds of the conferences being recognized by the SH Chamber of Architects and Engineers as official training events. Since 1956, exhibitors have used NordBau to reach both the numerous trade visitors and end customers (both public and private builders). NordBau has a high level of acceptance and appeal for all those interested in construction and for those working in the construction industry. Furthermore, NordBau has been closely associated with the partner country Denmark for more than 45 years, which sees the trade fair as the basis for the German and European market.
