The 21st edition of BBConstrumat is emerging as one of the best versions in recent years

The largest trade fair in the construction industry held in Spain is committed to innovation, digitalization and design

From May 14 to 17, 2019, the 21st edition of the Barcelona Building Construmat (BBConstrumat) will be held at the Gran Via venue in Barcelona, ​​concurring with the celebration of its 40th anniversary. It will be an essential event that focuses on innovation and digitalization as the main growth indicators, as well as design, sustainability, access to new international markets or the access to new global business opportunities, as a framework for promoting the recovery of the sector. In 2019, the exhibition will occupy a total area of 34,000 square meters of Hall 2 at the Gran Via venue of Fira de Barcelona and will have, among other new initiatives, an outdoor exhibition space with a complete daily agenda of demonstrations and for the first time a space for professional services.

This latest edition has aroused great expectation among the building industry of the country and expects to exceed the number of exhibitors of 2017, with this year increased participation of leading firms of the sector as well. The Spanish architect Josep Ferrando, responsible for the project for the ephemeral installation of BBConstrumat 2019, commissioned for designing a common space of 3.000m2, a dimension commonly associated with a public facility. The use of materials that will have a longer life cycle than the days of the trade fair, allow to build on the scale required in a trade fair, but at the same time, it will be understood in terms of ephemeral use in time. Recycling materials is an important topic, so for example, large beams, being used in the construction of the Sagrada Familia temple, will be used as benches or counters at the fair ground installations.

In addition, the BBConstrumat Awards will award Constructed Work and invited architectural and infrastructure projects on new and existing building to take part in the competition. Moreover, BBConstrumat has organised BBMeetings, an event for contract channel professionals.
