Visitors can get to know various services and products, system solutions and advanced technologies for home, construction and energy-efficient joinery, heating and cooling systems, furnishings, security and landscaping. The fair opened with an address by Dr Marjana Šijanec Zavrl from the ZRMK Building and Civil Engineering Institute, who stressed the importance of sustainable construction and nearly zero-energy buildings. "Every decision made by a builder and every intervention in the building has long-term effects on the economics of the building and the life in it, on the environmental burden, healthy living and satisfaction with the use of the building," she said. The Quality Label in Construction (of the Chamber of Local Public Economy), the Slovenian national environmental certificate in construction, was also awarded. It designates products, services, devices and technologies that meet the highest quality requirements, also on an international level. Important aspects of the fair include air conditioning systems, building materials, joinery and, in terms of materials, wood. The fair is an overview of novelties, innovations and the most advanced products and services related to home construction or renovation; two of the highlights are ZRMK and the Ensvet consultancy, which allows fair visitors to learn first-hand about the planning and building of nearly zero-energy houses and renovation. Every day, visitors can get advice from the independent experts of the ZRMK Building and Civil Engineering Institute, who give lectures on complete building renovation for the decarbonisation of the building fund and individual consulting (the schedule is availablehere), and the Ensvet network – Eco Fund (the schedule is available here). As part of the LIFE IP CARE4CLIMATE project, the ZRMK Building and Civil Engineering Institute, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, is also organising a workshop on sustainable building indicators based on the EU Level(s) framework and their testing and pilot use. The workshop will be held live on Friday, 8 April 2022, between 10:00 and 12:00 at the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre, FORUM Hall. The workshop invitation and programme are available here. The fair catalogue, which is available here, contains articles written at the ZRMK Building and Civil Engineering Institute.
