The 2015 FOR ARCH trade fair under the auspices of the President of the Czech Republic

The 26th annual FOR ARCH, the most attended Czech building trade fair, which will take place in September 2015 at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE fairground, will be exceptional. The event will be held under the auspices of Milos Zeman, the President of the Czech Republic; Bohuslav Sobotka, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic; and Milan Stech, the President of the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic. These auspices are yet another evidence that the FOR ARCH trade fair is the top event of the Czech building industry.   (7.1.2015)   read more >>

FOR THERM, a trade fair for heating, alternative sources of energy and AC, gains support of REHVA, the Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and AC Associations

REHVA represents more than 100.000 engineers from 26 European countries and helps the FOR THERM trade fair one more step further in 2015. As part of the cooperation, the 6th annual FOR THERM is included in the official list of REHVA, and REHVA will, from its position of a professional partner, take part in preparation of the accompanying program, which will be attended among others by prof. Ing. Karel Kabele, CSc., the president of REHVA. The main topic of the 2015 FOR ARCH is Energy Efficiency of Buildings, and FOR THERM follows with its topic Efficiency of Heating. We believe that this cooperation will yield new perspectives on the given topic.   (6.1.2015)   read more >>

Further cooperation of the FOR ARCH bulding trade fair with CEEC Research, an analytical and research company

Year 2015 will see a second year of cooperation between the FOR ARCH building trade fair and CEEC Research, a leading research company specialized in studies and surveys of the construction market. This cooperation started in 2014 at the 25th annual FOR ARCH fair in 2014, whose accompaying program included the 4th Conference of Directors of Project Design Companies organized by CEEC Research. The conference was attended by more than 400 representatives of project design and construction companies who discussed the current situation in the building market and the legislature with the representatives of the government and leading investment organizations.   (19.12.2014)   read more >>

Outer window blinds reduce energy expenses by up to 10%

Calculation of operation costs is crucial in every construction or reconstruction project. Coatings are insulated, apertures are filled and more efficient sources of heating are installed. Another way to save expenses is to install quality outer blinds – according to the study of the European Solar-Shading Organization, outer shading equipment can save up to 10 per cent of energy costs. Light and heat in a room can be regulated using blinds, which leads to reduction of heating costs in winter and to reduction of air-conditioning expenses in summer.   (18.12.2014)   read more >>

Wooden buildings are popular all around the world. Czech buyers are hesitant, though they can be granted up to 550.000 CZK

Though wood is used as building material more and more and the demand of the public for this type of buildings is increasing every year, wooden buildings still comprise a very little portion of the Czech construction market compared to the international standard. It is lack of knowledge that can be blamed for only little employment of wood for both detached houses and apartment buildings. People have distorted ideas about the lifespan of wooden buildings, which, if the wood is treated correctly, is not threatened by fire, pests, gnawers and fungi. Unarguably, wood´s big advantage is that it is a natural material that creates a comfortable climate in the interior of the building and it has a positive effect on the human psyche without being a burden to the environment. The aim of FOR WOOD, a trade fair for wooden buildings and utilisation of wood, is to challenge these delusions.   (15.12.2014)   read more >>

Project designers and builders are unprecedentedly busy – dozens of thousands of people seek inspiration at FOR ARCH

Civil engineering is growing and the number of projects will increase even in years to come, according to directors of building companies. The capacities of project and construction companies are full to an extent which is unprecedented in history (87% and 90% respectively), and the prices of their work will most likely go up. We therefore expect that this year‘s FOR ARCH will see yet another record in the number of attendants – higher prices will make people resort to self-help and looking for inspiration at FOR ARCH. Most of the visitors of FOR ARCH are residents of Prague and Central Bohemia. They account for 66 per cent of attendees. For manufacturers and suppliers from the construction sector, the trade fair is a great opportunity to present their products to both professionals and the general public. More and more people are interested in the GRAND PRIX price – a trophy for the best exhibition at the fair. In 2014, judges were choosing from forty-six exhibitions and products the one that contributes the most to the given sector.   (3.12.2014)   read more >>
