Coneco is suitably complemented by professional programme oriented at current topics in construction segment. The Building, Testing and Research Institute in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development together with other partners have prepared conference on theories and constructions of civil engineering. This time it will deal with questions surrounding revitalization of building within the ultra-low energy level of construction. The professional programme also contains topics such as effective energy use, proper thermal insulation, high quality building revitalization, operating small photovoltaic installations or correct selection of windows. The Association of Construction Entrepreneurs of Slovakia has prepared a conference named Investing in Construction Skills and no less interesting will be the 1st Slovak Championship in speed design. This competition is dedicated to university students under the patronage of BIM Association Slovakia and Faculty of Civil Engineering STUBA. Safety at work is a topic that still strongly resonates and needs proper attention. The Slovak Championship of Vocational Schools in Roofer Crafts under the patronage of the Slovak Roofers Guild is an ideal combination of education and practice.
The Wooden Houses and Passive Houses exhibitions will be even bigger this year, bringing broad participation of companies dealing with implementation of such buildings. Visitors will have a great opportunity to get oriented in wooden houses and energy self-sufficient buildings in the presence of experienced professionals willing to discuss the whole process from design to implementation.
