FOR ARCH 2021: new initiatives and professional meetings


Next year, workers and companies in the entire construction chain will face important challenges, the implementation of which in practice will bring interesting stimulus for the 32nd year of the FOR ARCH construction fair. It will take place on 21-25 September 2021 at PVA EXPO PRAGUE. A significant event was the FOR ARCH trade fair even in the current challenging time, when it took place under extraordinary health and safety measures. What are the main themes that will resonate with construction next year? For example, according to experts, the current problem in the construction industry is a shortage of workers, the negative development of the whole economy caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and the approaching traditional winter downturn. In August, analysts estimated that the construction industry would react with a delay and return to growth in 2022.

 

According to representatives of sectors that are closely linked to the construction industry, coronavirus, rather than the number of orders affected the time of their implementation. Some orders were postponed by 2 to 3 months due to a pandemic. However, demand did not decline in the first three quarters of this year. In the future, experts warn against a situation where, due to the development of the budget, there is a real risk of a greater decline in regions, cities and municipalities, where the government takes municipalities from budgets, often representing their year-round investments. State guarantees and European funding can then help.

 

The dependence of the field on foreign workers is higher and companies are under pressure from a shortage of mainly auxiliary workers. "Technological progress is an existential necessity for the construction sector. Most likely, we will never have as much manpower available as in the past - which only automation, prefabrication or robotics can solve. So the new technologies are undoubtedly also beneficial for the stability of the entire industry, "said Václav Matyáš, President of the Association of Entrepreneurs in the Construction Industry, at FOR ARCH this year.

 

New Building Act No. 403/2020 Coll. from January 2021

We will see whether the amendment to the Building Act and the Administrative Procedure Code from January 2021 will speed up the building permit and help revive the construction industry. Whether builders will welcome the possibility of applying for a permit using an electronic system, the so-called Builder's Portal, which represents a significant shift in the field of digitalization of public administration. And what will change the new institute of the so-called accelerated procedure.

 

GREEN SAVINGS: The successor program will be presented later this year

The big change will be that the program will also include apartment buildings outside the capital city of Prague. This follows an agreement with the Ministry of Regional Development. "The program will be simplified, especially at the level of application administration, for which a new information system is being prepared on the part of the SEF CR, which will continue to accept applications. It will be interesting to support adaptation measures, ie the so-called combination project of energy saving and rainwater management will be able to be solved within one application. Green roofs, retention tanks, sources, photovoltaics, etc. will be supported, "said Jan Kříž, Deputy Minister of the Environment, in an interview with TZB-info. The launch of the program is expected by the Ministry of the Environment in the middle of 2021.

 

BOILER REPLACEMENTS: The operation ban affects hundreds of thousands of sources! What to replace the old boiler for?

As of September 1, 2022, the operation of solid fuel boilers of the 1st and 2nd emission class will be completely banned. "Hundreds of thousands of households and small businesses will have to replace their existing solid fuel hot water boiler with a new heat source," says the TZB-info professional portal at the beginning of the Boiler Replacement project. The so-called OZO person, simply put, an expert trained by the boiler manufacturer, will best advise on the question of whether a particular boiler falls within the obligation. Every household operating a solid fuel boiler is obliged to invite it once every 36 months and have it inspected. He will then find the required information in the inspection report. The market offers a wide range of modern solid fuel boilers meeting the strictest emission requirements and efficiency requirements for gas condensing boilers, heat pumps of all types, ie air-water, water-water, ground-water and air-air as well as solar collectors, including photovoltaic. It is good to entrust a comprehensive solution for a specific house into the hands of an expert, because a good oversizing of resources, accumulation and regulation play a big role.

 

BIM: Since 2022, above-limit public contracts in BIM

"The Czech civil construction industry is doing more than well in the implementation of the BIM system - we are not catching up with anyone, we are at a level comparable to developed countries. And it is fair to say that BIM should reduce investment and operating costs by 20 to 30%. " said Vaclav Matyas.

"The Czech Republic has become the initiator of the creation of a new CCI classification system at the European level. The common classification system will ensure a uniform naming of all elements of the building, which will be understandable across disciplines and the various programs used. Simply put, a socket will always be a socket, whether it is opened on your computer and program by a designer, investor, management company or anyone else. The agreement on international cooperation in the creation of the CCI makes us one of the leading countries on the road to Construction 4.0, "says Jaroslav Nechyba, Director of the BIM Conception Department of the Czech Agency for Standardization.

Let us believe that the civil construction industry, as well as the whole society, is expected to stabilize in 2021 and return to the standard regime again.

 

 

 

 



The FOR ARCH 2020 building fair confirmed the status of the largest event of its kind once again!


The FOR ARCH 2020 building fair confirmed the status of the largest event of its kind in the Czech Republic once again. Visitors found a plenty of prestigious suppliers, manufacturer's, innovations, experts advice or an interesting accompanying program.

 

  

 

The FOR ARCH trade fair in 2020 was affected by the covid-19 virus pandemic. Due to extraordinary situation it was necessary not only to comply with stricter regulations for holding a public event, but above all to protect the health of visitors and exhibitors and at the same time provide everyone with maximum comfort and the best possible experience from the fair.

 

  

 


Safety of visitors and exhibitors has been at the first place .But  despite all the measures, the fair was a well full-fledged construction fair, where more than 26,537 visitors could find the current trends and new business opportunities in the area of more than 370 exhibitors stands.

 

 



See the short video report from the FOR ARCH 2020!




FOR CITY as a trade fair for support of the smart city concepts


The new FOR CITY Trade Fair responds to this newly emerging market and creates space for an inspiring exchange of experience, offer of solutions and technologies, as well as business negotiations between the above-specified target group and its suppliers of innovative technologies and professional services.

 

Many above-mentioned technologies are already more or less established on the markets for industry or for individual private users. Now, FOR CITY offers them a unique opportunity of addressing directly the market of public services for smart cities, which is specific in terms of its needs and its functioning.

 

FOR CITY builds on the best of what is offered by the simultaneously held traditional FOR ARCH Trade Fair, where the most modern technologies and solutions are presented, attending firms count on it, professionals respect it and visitors are used to finding verified information, high-quality materials as well as reliable suppliers every autumn in one place.

 

FOR CITY - 22 - 24 September 2020, PVA EXPO Prague



FOR CITY – An innovative solution for communities, towns, cities and regions


The smart city notion refers to the concepts of strategic management of communities, towns, cities or regions, using modern technologies together with the green infrastructure with the objective of increasing the quality of people’s life, going hand in hand with an increase in attractiveness of the given place for living and doing business, and subsequent increase in the economic level of that place. This means that smart cities are not any ideal, and therefore unrealistic “cities of the future”, but contemporaneous cities which develop sensitively and in a planned manner, with the use of all possibilities offered by modern technologies together with the green infrastructure for pleasant, and yet sustainable life of their inhabitants.  

 

The smart city concept therefore creates a new, specific B2B market of innovative technological solutions and support services whose target group includes public administration and public or private organisations in the role of suppliers of various public services for cities.  

 

FOR CITY will be presented for the first time simultaneously with the building trade fair FOR ARCH 2020 at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE Exhibition Centre in Letňany.
 

 

FOR CITY target group: Visitors from among representatives of communities, towns, cities and regions, state administration employees, architects, designers, businesspersons, technicians, specialists, active inhabitants, students.

 

FOR CITY exhibitors: suppliers of technologies and services for smart cities, towns, communities and regions, where the smart city concepts are already running and who want to present their services.

 

Term of the trade fair: 22 – 24 September 2020
