Director of Agenzia CasaClima (KlimaHaus), Ulrich Santa, will be the first expert to be interviewed for the new BUP Expert Talks section.
The focus of this interview is on digitalization and sustainable building focused in the design phase and materials, key topics addressed in Klimahouse Congress: “Construction 4.0” and “Architecture 2020”.
Ulrich Santa defined digitalization as a “disruptive change in the industry” highlighting how the uptake of these new technologies have an impact on occupation as the industry is increasingly seeking for skilled workers.
To be aligned with this dynamic context, Santa explains how Casaclima offers training courses for practitioners in many different fields and how, they aim to emphasize, not only high-quality planning, but also the execution quality when it comes to real sustainable and energy efficient buildings through their certification processes.
Finally, Ulrich Santa underlines the importance of considering the whole life cycle of buildings when talking about sustainability and energy efficiency measures expressing also that the real challenge is not the technical solutions - already efficient and available - but the renovation process required for the existing building stock.
EXPERT TALKS is a new initiative from BUILD UP. In the form of face to face interviews, experts coming from all around Europe and covering the field of Energy Efficiency in buildings from different perspectives, will share their views, experience and expertise with BUILD UP audience. Linked to the Topic of the Month, the interview will address most relevant topics.
