ArcelorMittal participated to the DAB Kongress conferences organised in Berlin, Germany on 14 and 15 November 2018.
Around the theme “How do we build in the future?”, several presentations led by architects and engineering companies focused on construction topics, such as the cradle-to-cradle approach, smart office building, etc, while focusing on different construction materials, such as steel, concrete, wood, brick and glass.
On 15 November, Professor Olivier Vassart, Executive Director of ArcelorMittal Global R&D and Professor Manfred Grohmann, Management, Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure held a "tandem talk" on the topic “Building new thinking: Steligence® - smart innovation with steel”.
Steligence® is a radical new concept for the use of steel in construction, which will facilitate the next generation of high performance buildings and construction techniques and create a more sustainable life-cycle for buildings.
The Steligence® concept is enabled by the latest development in steel solutions, such as building columns, castellated beams, composite slim-floor beams, additive floors, architectural panels, profile claddings, cassette systems, and many others.

More about Steligence®
Steligence® proposes a new approach to construction which considers buildings holistically, almost as ‘living entities’. As such, this new science-based methodology proposes the need for more dialogue between various specialist architectural and engineering disciplines, recognizing not only specialist expertise, but also the positive impact of enhanced co-operation between experts.
The concept has the potential to resolve the competing demands of creativity, flexibility, sustainability and economics. Built into the Steligence® approach is a broad range of steel products for construction which individually add value, but together represent a compelling portfolio.
Lastly, the Steligence® concept has the potential to drive significant architectural and sustainability benefits.
DAB Kongress offers the ideal discussion platform for architects, planners, engineers and representatives from the municipalities, construction industry, residential and real estate industries.
The conferences are an opportunity for the key players of the residential and construction industry to increase their awareness, to network with potential customers and decision-makers and to present their products and services.
This year at DAB Kongress the question in focus will be “What is the right material for which project?” Participants will discuss technological developments, trends, current and future issues and new solutions.
