Urban Agenda

09.00 - 10.30

The transformation of our cities needs new forms of integration between public and private actors able to internalize the knowledge and resources that administrations today are not able, alone, to put into play. National and international experiences are not lacking, but the challenge is to systematize them in a coherent and integrated legal and regulatory framework.

INTERVENTIONS OF
Tommaso Dal Bosco, Urban Investment Development - IFEL
Carlo Costa, Technical Director General - Autostrada del Brennero
Sergio Lovecchio, General Manager - Pensplan
Anna Rita Muzzarelli, Councilor - Municipality of Castel San Pietro Terme
Elisabetta Spitz, CEO Invimit SGR SpA
Diego Zanella, Councilor - Municipality of Merano

Opening plenary session

11.00 - 12.30

A new way of building that shifts building site operations (on-site) to the factory (off-site): the construction industry is changing and transforming, merging logistics and manufacturing processes into production sequences conditioned by the peculiar nature of construction projects. The challenge itself is no less than that which depends on it: greater technical and economic efficiency with falling costs and new margin opportunities for the sector; greater reliability in terms of respect for budget and execution timescales and improved quality of working conditions.

OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION: BUILDINGS MOVE TO THE FACTORY
New processes and values in innovative construction 
Many national and international businesses have already started the process of industrialisation and increased productivity through huge investments in new technology and processes. Bouygues is one of the most highly renowned companies at global level for its innovation. Automation, robotics, 3D print, immersive environments and increased reality, flying factories, the Internet for things and smart wearable form the new dictionary for their innovation team. This session will investigate these systems, highlighting the potential for the national building industry, thanks to two large Italian constructors.

INTERVENTIONS OF
Thomas Miorin, President - RE-Lab Srl
Pierre Barrelet, Development and Strategy Director - Bouygues Construction
Jacopo Palermo, General Manager - Immobiliare Percassi S.p.A
Maurizio Focchi, Owner - Focchi S.p.A.

A COMPARISON OF INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY AND PROCESSES

14.00 - 15.30

How does a developer choose an off-site technology these days? 
Wood, cement, steel: off-site construction represents a common prospective and a range of technologies. The shifting of productive processes from the building site to the factory is not actually the prerogative of specific technological solutions, but rather a frontier that involves a wide variety of building techniques and productive processes, with limitations and opportunities that need to be carefully assessed and compared. 
Which technologies for which situations? What are the costs and for which type of performance? And what are the timescales?

INTERVENTIONS OF
Ezio Micelli, Chairman - Scientific Committee REbuild
Luca Benetti, Director - Stahlbau Pichler
Giorgio Bignotti, Director - Sistem Costruzioni S.r.l.
Evangelista Zampatti, AD - Moretti Construction Systems

NEW BUSINESS MODEL FOR OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION

15.00 - 15.30

PREFABRICATION

16.00 - 17.30

Lessons from post-seismic emergency constructions 
There are very few situations in which efficiency and the operational value of new technological solutions are measured as those that have to respond to catastrophic events, such as the recent earthquakes that have struck the central area of our country. In this participative session, there will be a presentation of technologies that make it possible to manage emergencies with incredibly fast and effective interventions, created and executed with Italian technology and skill.

MODERATOR
Francesco Cattaneo, General Manager - Habitech

Business to Business

16.00 - 17.30

BINDINGS vs. RULES. DISCONNECT: NECESSARY OPPORTUNITY OF THE PROJECT.

17.30 - 17.50

INTERVENTION OF
Alfondo Femia, AD - 5+1AA

Italians do it better?

17.30 - 19.00

Houzz presents this year to REbuild an important study on how families in our country transform their homes. Almost 230,000 owners from around the world responded to the survey, of which about 3,000 Italians have given precise indications of: the nature and quality of interventions; their cost and the technologies employed; the use of professionals and businesses.

INTERVENTIONS OF
Carlo Ezechieli, Scientific director - IOArch
Alfondo Femia, CEO - 5+1AA
Mattia Perroni, Managing Director - Houzz

Microgrid

17.30 - 19.00

This year, REbuild will be fuelled by energy produced, managed and distributed locally, using a micro smart-grid. Micro-grids are systems that generate and deliver electricity to a defined area, (such as buildings, a campus or a neighbourhood), and are transforming the face and the economic aspects of energy systems at international level with a projected turnover of 40 billion dollars in the year 2020. 
This session will not only present the project from a technical point of view, but it will also highlight the potential uses and economic advantages as well as the adoption prospective in relation to the normative context.

INTERVENTIONS OF
Marco Dal Mas, Architect Project Manager - Evolvere
David Moser, Head of Research Group - Eurac
Davide Tinazzi, Project Coordinator for REbuild Microgrid
Gianni Silvestrini, President - GBC Italia
