【DE】Digital planning, sustainable construction: GET Nord offers important impulses for architects, TGA planning and the construction trade

Sustainable construction is an urgent necessity. According to the Federal Environment Agency, the building sector is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases and the main waste polluters in Germany with around 115 million tons of CO2 and about 230 million tons of construction and demolition waste per year. An important tool for climate-friendly and resource-saving construction is Building Information Modeling (BIM), which is increasingly gaining its place in construction practice.


The digital planning method streamlines processes, reduces costs and shortens project times. In addition, information can be created and managed over the entire life cycle of a building and thus made usable for various purposes. This year’s GET Nord offers architects, planners and the construction trade a wide range of opportunities to find out about BIM. In addition, the International Architecture Forum presents innovative approaches for sustainable architecture from Germany and Scandinavia.


BIM in TGA planning


Especially for the target group of building services and electrical planners, an informative program on BIM is offered in the GET Nord Arena. In addition to an overview of the basics of currently valid BIM standardization (ISO, CEN, DIN and VDI), trade visitors gain insights into the use of BIM in TGA planning. Especially for TGA planners, there are many advantages from working on the 3D model. For example, DIN-compliant pipe and fittings can be automatically derived through the extensive product libraries with intelligent components. Sometimes the components also allow automated heating load and pipe network calculations as well as energetic-dynamic building simulations in the planning phase. In addition, BIM’s opportunities for cross-trade cooperation are shown and legal aspects of the use of BIM procedures are explained.


Software solutions for BIM and crafts 4.0


The theoretical information about BIM from the GET Nord Arena can be tried out in practice at the respective booth of the numerous providers of corresponding planning software. For example, LINEAR GmbH gives TGA planners exciting insight into the highlights of the new “LINEAR Solutions V23” for Revit and AutoCAD. Among other things, the building analysis has been further developed. “The analysis of building models is actually almost an old hat in the LINEAR software,” says Javier Castell-Codesal from the LINEAR management in Aachen. “It is a very popular and intensively used program module, which is always much more than one step ahead of the other analysis modules on the market. Topics such as multi-part walls and floors, suspended ceilings, nested submodels, terrain topographies – to name but a few – are still practical unique selling points of our solution, which we have now further improved.”


Treesoft GmbH & Co. focuses on the electrical trade. KG, among other things, with its starter package “Building Technology”, which includes an easy-to-use CAD software for electrical planning in building and electrical installation technology. MagiCAD Group GmbH informs about the latest functions and improvements of its software solution “MagiCAD 2023” for Revit. In addition, numerous manufacturers of comprehensive industry solutions for the digitization of commercial processes in craft businesses present their software portfolio, including renowned brands such as pds, powerbird, Label Software and cleverKOM.


Top-class architecture forum


The International Architecture Forum shows innovative approaches to sustainable architecture as well as climate- and socially just living spaces in cities. For 12 years, it has been offering prominent architects a stage for the presentation of outstanding best practice examples as part of GET Nord. Among the most important architectural offices of the present presenting their visions this year are Sauerbruch Hutton, Werner Sobek AG, LRO Architekten and haascookzemmrich STUDIO2050 from Germany, according to whose design the new district center on Berliner Platz in Hamburg is being built. Mad arkitekter and the Snøhetta office, which has won several times for its sustainable building design, give inspiration from Norway. Other representatives of a climate-friendly and resource-saving architecture from Scandinavia are ADEPT, White Arkitekter and Lendager Group.



The presentation of the GET Nord ArchitekturAward is also eagerly awaited, with which the most successful trade fair appearance is awarded in its address to the target group of architects. It will take place on Thursday, the 17th. November at 12 noon. Also on the first day of the fair, the German TGA Award will be presented – for the first time at GET Nord. It honors outstanding planning achievements and technological innovations from specialist planners and young talents in the TGA segment as well as the manufacturing industry for building technology.


About GET Nord


GET Nord is the only joint trade fair for electrical, sanitary, heating and air conditioning in Germany and the leading building technology trade fair in the north. It takes place every two years on the grounds of Hamburg Messe und Congress and networks the various trades of building technology with architects, planners, wholesalers and industry with its pioneering trade fair concept. Around 550 companies present their latest products and innovative solutions on the topics of energy efficiency, renewable energies, energy management, building equipment and building system technology. This makes the GET Nord platform and initiator for future-oriented building technologies and solutions for climate protection at home. It will take place from the 17th to the 19th. November 2022 in Hamburg.
