The latest trends in the area of fire safety
A key factor in the building industry is also fire safety, and therefore this topic will be the central point of the second edition of the conference known as FIRE SAFETY OF BUILDINGS which is to be held on Thursday 21 September 2017 within the framework of the accompanying programme of the FOR ARCH Trade Fair and is organised by the largest building portal for professionals in the Czech Republic – TZB-info. The conference will be focused on current trends of fire safety in the field of technical equipment of buildings, the issue of steel structures as well as wooden buildings, including fire safety of the buildings which are a cultural monument. Discussions will be held about the influence on practice of the new standard for cables, and the participants will not be missing a specialised lecture focused on negative experience implying from statistics relating to fires. In the part focused on technical systems the participants interested in these issues will be made familiar with innovations in the fire fighting systems, sprinkler technologies, systems aimed at permanent reduction of oxygen content as well as with the use of drones for documentation of fires.

Can architecture change the world?
After several years the conference known as Crossroads of Architecture returns back into the specialised programme of the trade fair. This conference is to be held on Thursday 21 September 2017 as well. “By inhabiting we are changing our surroundings and the environment, we are changing also the way in which we inhabit and use the world,” says A. Kalach, Master of Mexican Architecture and Guest of this year’s Crossroads of Architecture, while commenting the main topic of the event. The lecture programme and subsequent discussion will be moderated by Adam Gebrian, important promoter and at the same time also reviewer of the architecture. Through connection with the FOR ARCH Building Trade Fair, the conference organiser emphasises the close professional integrity between the builder and the architect. After the previous on-line registration, the participation in this accompanying event will be free of charge for those interested. The lecture of Mexican Architect Kalach will be preceded by the best works in the Young Architect Award competition and the winners will take over their prizes directly from the hands of Albert Kalach.
At the FOR ARCH 2017 Trade Fair you will be also able to get yourselves convinced that for example ČEZ has entered into the 21st century with its customers. This can be evidenced by the innovative products and services which use energy in a more environment-friendly way, increase customer comfort and save their expenses. An example is, among other things, the smart thermostat “tado°” capable of learning the habits of the entire family, or the supply of a photovoltaic power plant on a turnkey basis with advantageous financing. At the same time visitors can look forward already now to the brand-new sector of the trade fair focused on current trends and technologies in the area of security technology, systems of protection of buildings and security services.
