SWISSBAU INNOVATION LAB – EXPERIENCE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

The Swissbau Innovation Lab is the platform for digital transformation in the construction and real-estate industry. Visitors are invited to be inspired by the experience of over 80 partners and their latest technologies and applications in the Innovation Village. Exciting innovation pitches in the Speakers Corner and the iRoom show provide a glimpse into the future of digital planning, construction, use and operation. 

SWISSBAU INNOVATION LAB ON NOVEMBER 17TH: COLLABORATION OF THE INTERDISCIPLINARY PARTNER COMMUNITY 

The focus of the collaboration is on three real construction projects. Over the period of a year, interdisciplinary partner teams worked together and developed new solutions for the challenges associated with the three areas «uptownBasel», «S-TATES» and «BaseLink». The result: seven pioneering prototypes for the high performance building! The results will be presented for the first time at Swissbau in the iRoom as a film and in the Innovation Village in the Partner Quarters. 

The "Swissbau Innovation Lab on Tour" continues on Thursday, 17 November 2022. Starting at 11 a.m. at the uptownBasel site in Arlesheim, everything will be under the sign of digital innovation. The experiences from the development of the seven prototypes will be exchanged using practical examples and discussed in the community. The partners will thus have the ideal platform to share their knowledge and to maintain and expand their network. Registration documents will be published in July 2022.
