Wood & Construction 2019: great success for the 11th edition

​Wood & Construction: 21,000 visitors and focus on green building

The wood has been the undisputed protagonist of the four days "Legno & Edilizia" of Verona, which has just ended with very positive results. The fair was held from 7 to 10 February last.

The eleventh edition ended with a rise in numbers compared to the previous appointment and with 21,000 visitors present. The positive result, certainly, should also be attributed to the new exhibition called "EcoHouse", which showcased materials and technologies in favor of greater sustainability and energy savings in buildings.

Therefore, Eco House is confirmed as a new fixture for the biennial, a side space that perfectly combines with the increasingly international event.

Wood in construction really saves money and obtains more benefits from homes, which are becoming ever smarter, more environmentally friendly, equipped with home automation systems and comfortable.

During the event, the most important aspects of Bio-building were examined, a sector that continues to evolve and grow, mostly in Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Lombardy. Here there are young companies that today hold 46% of the entire sector. In these areas, the construction of sustainable buildings is increasing, which today represent 53% of the sustainable homes in Italy.

180 companies were visited at the fair, located in two pavilions for a total exhibition area of ​​25,000 square meters. Legno & Edilizia has highlighted new solutions in terms of latest generation technologies, machinery and plants for working wood in construction, prefabricated houses and systems for building, walls, floors, tools and accessories, materials and of futuristic designs.

We continue to study new solutions to technologize the sector and make it safer, faster and more monitorable. During the seminar "Wood 4.0 - changes taking place in wooden constructions", held during the fair, it emerged that, according to Felice Ragazzo - Professor of La Sapienza University of Rome, robots are less precise than numerical control machines, in the case of wooden building constructions. Furthermore, Tommaso Martini - Engineer of the SCM Group of Rimini, one of the most important producers of numerical control machines in the world, explained how Smartech works, a device for augmented reality, able to make solutions to problems appear in real time. technicians found, through eyewear that interconnects multiple operators. The objectives of this device, of intelligent management, of monitoring and simulation software are obvious, aiming to be more productive, more efficient and to reduce costs and processing times.
