Published 24/11 at 16:40

In March 2022, the German Demolition Association (Deutscher Abbruchverband e. V. - DA) is again organising the Fachtagung Abbruch at the Station-Berlin, Luckenwalder Strasse. After last year’s event saw 1,000 participants and 117 exhibitors attend, expectations are high for the 2022 edition.

Journalist and publicist Dr. Hajo Schumacher, will give the keynote speech on the topic of, ‘Demolition, upheaval, awakening - where is the new German government heading?’ Following on, there will be 12 further lectures on current and interesting topics focused around demolition. In the lectures, experts will provide   a great deal of practice oriented information on construction site reports as well as on the handling of pollutants, recycled construction materials and legal requirements.

This year, among other things, subjects covered include: ‘Pilot project Campus Essen – Essen’s highest demolition site aims for platinum status’; ‘Problem areas in recycled material specifications for building products’; ‘The safe disposal of asbestos containing grinding and milling materials: a real or a contrived problem?’ and, ‘Selected best practices of controlled blasting of buildings’. Various other specialist lectures are scheduled, including, ‘Deconstruction of the Coca Cola building in Bremen – industrial area in the change of time since 1878’, and ‘Deconstruction of   Neckartal-Crossing at Heilbronn’. As the number of international visitors continues to grow, simultaneous translation  into English and French will be offered once again.

By end of October, the accompanying professional exhibition with its wide range of products, had already attracted over 60 exhibitors with over 600m2 being registered. The current list of exhibitors can be viewed on the event website and registration as an exhibitor  is still possible until 3 January 2022.


Dialogue evening 

A dialogue evening will also take place in the Station-Berlin with the exhibition remaining open and located parallel. This improves the exchange and information opportunities for both participants and exhibitors as well as providing a variety of networking opportunities. The event has been able to stand in its own right due to the participation of sponsors. The DA would like to thank its supporters for this.
