In times of constant change and challenges that can be mastered only on a global scale, it is nevertheless possible to build successfully and with a view to a viable future as long as international markets, trends, visions and development potential are identified.

Like no other building method, dry and lightweight construction systems offer limitless design freedom, comprehensive technological performance and cost-effective efficiencies with a view to the aspects of sustainability and flexibility.

The itf is a platform for sharing technology and architecture; it stands for developing visions that relate to the issue of “lightweight construction.” This Congress will showcase how forward-looking building can be implemented within the entire construction industry value chain. Experts will be discussing trends, innovative solutions, the future of feasibility, resource consumption, costs and values.

The itf 2010 for architects, professional planners and designers, contractors, manufacturers and investors will serve as an information forum, with quality presentations from the international architectural community, from science and from real-world experience. There will be reports on how visions have been turned into reality and how they have been sustainably implemented by specialists – in top quality, using innovative products.

You can look forward to getting to know these projects, the minds behind them, the specialty contractors and the ingenious solutions at the itf 2010. Benefit from the networking opportunities at this Congress.

We look forward to welcoming you in Ulm, Germany.
