In recent months the CASA Solo team, we have been present in some important events such as the 2nd Strategic Immersion Conference of the HT Cluster and the Congress and Fair on Constructive Wood in Vic.
Here we share a brief summary of both.
II Strategic Immersion Conference of HT Cluster
As we mentioned in our previous publication on the HealthTech Cluster, CASA Solo’s team is part of this initiative that took its own autonomy in June 2014 grouping companies and Catalan entities of the sector of the technologies of the health, to promote the competitiveness in this sector.
Last October, the 2nd Strategic Immersion Conference of HT Cluster was held at Hotel Mola Center, Terrassa, in which the attendees and the speakers reflected on the strategic challenges of the sector and shared successful experiences.
The day began with the intervention of Manel Pretel, manager of the HealthTech Cluster and Thomas J.Sommer, president of MassMEDIC, the largest cluster of medical devices in the United States that has the most powerful MedTech industry in the world, with which the HT Cluster has recently signed an agreement.
Later, discussion tables and presentations on different themes took place, such as exponential health technologies, the analysis of new business models in the digital health sector or the implementation of facility management in the hospital sector.
Our partner architect Bernat Gato also took part of the day developing the thematic of the use of the current technology in the construction of hospitals. He explained the advantages of the collaborative work methodology BIM and its possible application in both new work and rehabilitation projects.
Finally, an assessment was made of the 2nd Strategic Immersion Conference of HT Cluster, considering it a success while doubling the participation of the previous year. At present there are more than 40 companies that contribute in the form of time and money to the cluster, with the aim of creating a chain of values among all.
From CASA Solo, as members of the HealthTech Cluster, we are very grateful to all the assistants and speakers for their professionalism and contributions during the development of the whole conference.
Congress and Fair on Constructive Wood
Another event in which we participated last October is the Congress and Fair on Constructive Wood, which took place from October 14 to 16 in Vic, with the objective to bring together current knowledge of sustainable construction and healthy environments, with the growing demand on these constructive techniques.
Both the European Strategy 20/20/20 and the Catalan Strategy for Energy Renewal of Buildings (ECREE) pose the redirection of architecture towards a more sustainable, energy-efficient and renewable energy use to cope with change climate.
For this reason the Congress and Fair on Constructive Wood was held, dealing with aspects such as wood and health, constructive typologies, energy efficiency or urban policies.
In the context of the day, our partner architect Bernat Gato exposed the possibilities of wood in the design of healthy environments in hospitals, within the first block of the Congress “wood and health”.
Finally, from CASA Solo we just want to thank the congress organization for their confidence in our work and congratulate you for your specialized technical dissemination work that helps professionals to create a network and share knowledge.
