Vancouver loves Isokorb®… and we love Vancouver!

von Christian Witt

From February 21st to February 23rd, Bill Chihata and I spent some time in Vancouver and Whistler doing Lunch and Learn presentations to Architects and enjoying the nice landscapes of British Columbia.

Especially Whistler was awesome. What a great place to install Isokorb®! And the best is: it’s going to happen! A private “Whistler Sky House” will use approx. 160 Schöck Isokorb® type S22 to insulate the beautiful inside from the cold temperatures outside. Different to the typical wooden building in Whistler, the Sky House will be made of concrete and steel. … weiterlesen

One day full of Isokorb® with Alex

von Christian Witt

When Alex Krenczik called me to invite me to a half day seminar at the German-Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Toronto where he and other high level experts were presenting about their own experience and research results with thermal bridge aspects, I said “sure, I’d love to”, especially because I knew we will be launching the Schöck Isokorb® soon. The seminar was called “Avoiding / Coping with Thermal Bridging”. That was an excellent opportunity for me to meet people from the industry. So I accepted. What I didn’t know at that time was the tight agenda that Alex had prepared for us on that day. … weiterlesen

Tunnels USA Conference, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

von Christian Witt

This conference was organized by Arena International Events Group for the first time ever and took place in Boston, Massachusetts from December 6th to December 8th, 2010. We decided to attend this year with a booth in order to introduce our ComBAR® Glassfibre Reinforcement System to the US-Market for the first time again in the last 5 years. We presented our new folding display wall designed specifically for Tunneling Construction applications. The event attracted approx. 60 participants from North America, including Transport Canada, the Ministry of Transportation Québec and several DOT’s (Department of Transportation) from different States across the US. The conference finished with a very interesting site visit to Boston’s state of the art and highly sophisticated Highway Operations Center, hosted by The Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
