Conscious construction

Taking a responsible approach to designing residential properties and living space is becoming increasingly important in the construction industry and also involves a number of new challenges in the world of architecture. This was reason enough for Hagemeister to make the topic of sustainable construction one of the focuses of this year’s Clinker Brick Seminar. Under the motto of “Conscious construction”, five speakers from the German and international architecture scene gave specialist talks dedicated to this topic.

Impressively enough, the Clinker Brick Seminar took place for the 17th time in 2022. After a two-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the continued education event approved by the German architectural associations took place in a hybrid format for the first time to comply with the current regulations. On 8 and 9 March 2022, a total of 200 architects gathered at the event venue, which was subject to a strict hygiene concept. The on-site participants were joined by an additional 150 attendees of the online event held at the same time. “Conscious construction is a highly topical issue. The construction sector is facing a huge challenge that demands new solutions. It is interesting to come together with architects to think about what innovative ideas are around, which new approaches construction experts are taking and above all, how we here at Hagemeister can contribute towards fulfilling the objectives of sustainable construction,” declares Managing Director Dr Christina Hagemeister, explaining the relevance of the topic before adding: “We are pleased about the stimulating exchange and positive response to the event. It is wonderful to welcome many visitors who regularly return to the Clinker Brick Seminar over the years.”
