OPENING PLENARY: DECARBONISE TO INNOVATE

The innovations that are transforming the real estate and construction sectors need to be projected onto the broader objectives that our societies and our economies have set themselves. The de-carbonisation of cities and their sustainable development are the references we require to assess the efforts of companies and administrations. Innovation and its environmental and social references become the priority focus to provide the framework and actions to be taken in the short as well as in the long term.

ONSITE vs OFFSITE: THE CONSTRUCTION CHALLENGE IN AN NH PROJECT

Tourism is a key sector of the Italian economy, with a growth rate significantly higher than that of our national GDP. The modernisation of accommodation facilities is a major challenge for the construction of our country. In this Open Lab, NH Hotel will present a project of its own and participants can propose new solutions to put together a new implementation approach. It will be an opportunity to compare the traditional approach with the industrialised one.

DECARBONISING CONSTRUCTION

Decarbonisation can and must be the object of an analytical measurement for companies and professionals, but today's "more or less tested" sustainability formulas do not guarantee the analysis of the results of technical choices and tax incentives. It will be an opportunity to present methodologies, tools and practices that can effectively guide design and (re)construction able to combine costs, performance and environmental impact.
