Even for the team of Hering Architectural Concrete, the Ulmer Betontage have since become a constant. On the one hand, the event days are used for one-to-one exchanges with colleagues from the industry. On the other hand, the congress provides the opportunity to obtain information about the latest technological developments and promising projects, products and processes. At the same time, one is not only confronted by new things but also tried and tested things. On Tuesday afternoon. Prof Dipl.-Ing. Dominik Wirtgen of Fischer Architekten presented some projects from within the EASTSITE Areals in Mannheim. This included the media and communications centre that was implemented with a fair-faced concrete façade by Hering Architectural Concrete. An optical highlight is the "The Source" piece of art by the French artist Jean-Auguste-Ingres, which was projected onto the precast concrete parts by way of photo concrete technology.
A leitmotif ran like a common thread through all events: The possible applications of concrete are manifold and, through constant further developments, the precast concrete industry offers solutions that will also cope with future challenges.
