German Demolition Association’s Demolition ConferencePublished 23/12, 2015 at 15:03
The German Demolition Association’s 22nd Demolition Conference will take place on 4 and 5 March 2016 in the Hotel InterContinental, Berlin. More than 750 visitors and 90 exhibitors took part in Europe’s largest demolition convention in March 2015. The convention is open to anyone interested in demolition.
Visitors consist of demolition contractors, employees of engineering offices, representatives of public authorities and site managers. Approximately 20 presentations will be given on a series of current topics of demolition. The speakers will report on the latest developments and innovations in the areas of technology, removal of toxic waste, recycling, health & safety and accident prevention. Site reports and information on relevant legal changes will also be included. The ‘dialogue evening’ will provide visitors with an opportunity to consolidate existing contacts and make new ones within an informal gathering.
The programme will inform about the demolition of pre-stressed concrete bridges and demolition works within the new Birmingham railway station in the UK with a remotely controlled excavator. It contains topics such as the requirement for early involvement of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) in dismantling projects, as well as practical examples of leading German blasting companies.
The exhibition accompanying the convention is a valuable supplement to the programme as the excursions to demolition sites in Berlin on the second day.
Registration is available on the website www.demolition-conference.com and will also include the final programme of the 22nd Demolition Conference.
