REbuild 2024 PROGRAMME

Values drive value

The construction and real estate sectors are historically among the main financial levers. This is why the challenges posed by the ecological transition offer an opportunity for the construction industry, if well directed by policy, to create a new period of prosperity and renewal. 

We need to rethink the sector's business model based on solid values of responsibility and reciprocity to guarantee the right to housing and related services for all, as set out in the UN’s SDGs. Doing good by generating good is the new mantra that must guide the industry’s actions, where technological development, process digitisation and prefabrication are all tools that can really make a difference. In the belief that either the transition will be fair or it will not.



Five major themes for two days focused on change.

From digital to AI

The potential offered by digital has not yet been fully explored and realised, and the new scenarios created by artificial intelligence are already with us. The self-learning characteristic of AI will enable design, modelling and construction tools, as well as DfMA and simulation tools such as Digital Twins and fintech and PropTech-type management platforms to increase the breadth of possible solutions, the depth of analysis of possible scenarios, and the exhaustiveness and accuracy of outputs.

New materials, R&D and innovative technologies

Eco-design is taking a growing role, and must interpret the new challenges as best it can: durability, technical and energy performance, maintaining value over time, functionality and the widest possible integration with different construction systems, while reducing environmental impact. And it is here that chemistry, physics and engineering meet to breathe life into new materials, redesign existing ones, ensure their compliance with new protocols for sustainability, and crossbreed them with others.

ESG and collaborative business

The financial taxonomy will drive the development of the real estate market towards new standards of sustainability. Buildings of value and therefore of financial interest will be the most efficient, well-maintained and well-managed, with flexible, healthy and biophilic spaces, and indoor and outdoor green areas available. We need to create an active dialogue between institutions, investors and planners, focused on the quality of living, occupant wellbeing, interpersonal relations, and the relationship with the external environment and the community.

Off-site and robotic industrialisation

According to scenarios emerging from demographic forecasts, the demand for quality, sustainable and healthy housing is set to grow significantly. To offer buildings with these characteristics at low cost, the construction industry will need to speed up process industrialisation and the use of robotics. New professionals with specific technological skills will work alongside traditional building players, in a constant dialogue between industry and construction site.

Energy transition

The limited reduction in emissions due to building management makes it unlikely that Italy will achieve the targets set by the Fit for 55 programme by 2030. The key to halving emissions lies in reducing buildings' energy needs, optimising consumption through management technologies, control and self-production, and on-site energy exchange, while efforts to integrate the building-plant-appliance system will represent the new frontier for energy efficiency in the residential sector.
