Last week the edition of Rebuild Expo & Congress took place, the boutique innovation event for the architecture and building sector. This edition took place at IFEMA Madrid, and according to the data communicated by the organization, it has experienced a great growth in the participation of both visitors and exhibitors regarding the 2018 edition in Barcelona. Around 9,800 attendees and 200 exhibitors gathered throughout the 3 days of activities.

On this occasion we had the joy of seeing several of our clients among the nominees. In fact, Titan Industries won the first prize in the category “Innovation in product, material or nanomaterial”, for its C2C Certified ™ paints, the P80N series: In this category Honext, the start-up of innovation in construction materials, with whom we collaborate in application development and evaluation for C2C Certified ™ was also nominated.
The Socrates building
The Socrates building had a specially dedicated session, in which the whole team presented the different aspects of the work done. This pioneering project in the application of the circular economy in construction aroused great expectation among those attending the Rebuild Expo & Congress.
Arturo Fernández presented Construcía’s perspective on the application of circular economy and Cradle to Cradle principles in its way of designing and building.
Gemma Canals explained information management through our tool to generate Material Passports, together with Huc Bassas, BIM manager at Construcía.
