Across five days, the trade-only event will be the one-stop-shop for architects, builder’s merchants, site managers and construction buyers alike, in search of innovative products, inspirations and practical solutions.

BATIMAT will explore the key themes and issues that are expecting to arise in the coming years and which will shape tomorrow’s built environment, including:

  • Understanding the relationship between building and mobility
  • Designing the cities of tomorrow with low to zero-carbon emissions
  • How to use non-waste and renewable energy solutions
  • Improving working conditions and adapting to new technologies
  • Increased connectivity and optimising, storing and sharing energy with new technologies

These themes will be addressed across the six sectors of the show, including two new areas, ‘Off-site Building’ and ‘Construction Tech’ – an area dedicated to the use of new technologies in the construction industry.

Celebrating its 60-year anniversary, the Innovation Awards will bring practicality to the main topics explored and allow visitors to identify the very best of exhibitors’ products, carefully selected by a panel of independent industry experts.

An exclusive focus on the opposition between high-tech and low-tech will be made during a highly-awaited conversation gathering European-based acclaimed Architects Amin Taha from GroupWork, Carmen Santana from Archikubik, Manuel Leon Anjul from Traumnovelle architects and Francesco Isidori from Labics.

In addition, particular attention will be given to off-site building during a whole afternoon of talks dedicated to this construction technique. Visitors will be given the opportunity to hear from prominent speakers on how off-site building is still revolutionising the sector and how it can help boost on-site productivity. Speakers will include Bouygues International’s Head of Modular Construction Aurélie Clereaux, Architect Andrew Waugh, Mark Farmer from CAST Consulting, Bryan Evans from ESFA and Henry Mickeburg from Skystone.
