As part of the Brickwork Days of the Southern German brick and tile industry, experts will discuss innovative concepts and solutions for how energy efficiency and ecological assessment will shape the construction of tomorrow. The series of events will be offered at four locations in person and as an online seminar. Registration is possible at www.mauerwerks-akademie.de
The Masonry Days 2024 will take place from 31 January to 7 February 2024. Four events will be held in Ulm, Seligenstadt, Dachau and Memmingen under the motto "Sustainable building - strategic and constructive implementation in practice". The Masonry Day in Memmingen will also be offered as a hybrid event.
The Masonry Academy, a joint platform of Hörl & Hartmann Ziegeltechnik GmbH & Co. KG with the plants in Dachau, Gersthofen, Klosterbeuren, Deisendorf, Bönnigheim and Hainburg as well as the Bellenberg brickworks, organises the Brickwork Days. The series of events is known as the most successful further training event in masonry construction and is aimed at civil engineers, architects and building contractors. Several hundred participants are expected.
From energy efficiency to sustainability
Dipl.-Ing. Architect Stefan Horschler, owner of the Büro für Bauphysik in Hanover, will discuss the second amendment to the Building Energy Act 2024 (GEG). He will shed light on the consequences for new builds and refurbishments from the perspective of a building physicist and explain the associated funding opportunities.
B. Eng., MBA Julius Grimm, Managing Director of Grimm GmbH in Maselheim, will use a specific example project to illustrate the path to a QNG-certified building. He will talk about challenges, opportunities and insights from planning with BIM to construction and completion (presentation only in Ulm and Seligenstadt). In Dachau and Memmingen, Dipl.-Ing. Holger König, owner of Ascona GbR in Gröbenzell, will present the eco-balance goals in residential construction. Among other things, this involves incorporating the service life of building products into the ecological assessment of construction.
Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Josef Mayr, fire protection expert and main author of the fire protection atlas, will present the pragmatic implementation of fire protection in new builds and conversions in his lecture. Prof. Jürgen Ulrich, retired presiding judge at Dortmund District Court and member of the State Judicial Examination Office at the NRW Ministry of Justice, will address the question of how building contractors can obtain their rights and how claims can be properly secured.
The technical building consultants and project consultants from the brick industry, Thomas Maucher (Ulm), Dipl.-Ing. Roscoe Baptist (Seligenstadt) and Dipl.-Ing. Claus Dillinger (Dachau/Memmingen), will use concrete examples to show how increased requirements from all areas of structural housing construction can be realised in a current, targeted and practical manner with brick solutions. The event will be moderated by Dipl.-Ing. Hans Peters and will be accompanied by an exhibition of renowned building material manufacturers.
