Soil and planting concepts for a climate-resistant outdoor area
Climate change, biodiversity and water storage during heavy rains are important and very topical themes in public green spaces. The challenge for many municipalities, consultancies and green entrepreneurs is to create a visually appealing green outdoor space that meets all requirements and wishes in the field of sustainability and with maximum return in terms of climate, water, of biodiversity and well-being. During the Public Space Fair, DCM (De Ceuster Meststoffen) will present the concept of sustainable flooring; a concept consisting of soil analysis, advice and an action plan, which makes public green spaces more climate-resistant.
With its range of perennials and easy-care planting concepts, Lageijzer Vaste Planten is also trying to make public green spaces more climate-resistant. New this year is the “Wild at Heart” planting concept; a natural planting in which native perennial species are combined with common perennials.
Water crossing and open sidewalk for water and greenery
MBI, producer of aesthetic concrete paving materials and facade cladding, and importer of Italian ceramic indoor and outdoor tiles, offers trade fair visitors with its design for public space a glimpse of a city healthy with water passage and open paving for water and greenery. MBI also shows the GeoRetron; a sustainable alternative to a classic street scene and the new CityHealth concept, with everything for a healthy city.
Composite bridges as a sustainable and cost-effective solution
The demand for more sustainable and cost-effective solutions naturally also plays a role in the traffic infrastructure. FiberCore composite bridges meet these requirements in several ways. These bridges are also easy to maintain, can be made faster than conventional bridges, and can be moved. Recently, another component was added; with 13 other partners, the company has recently produced the most complete bio-based composite bridges, based on flax fibers and bio-resin. This circular bridge also has built-in sensors. The company will say more about these innovations at the Salon de l’Espace Public.
Public Space and Mobility Fair
The Salon de l’Espace Public focuses on public space and everything that goes with it. The main topics that will be covered are: greenery, advice and management, architecture and landscaping, paving, construction and infrastructure, games and leisure, lighting and street furniture.
The Green sector is one of the most popular sectors each year during the Salon de l’Espace Public. Current public debates on topics such as drought, heat stress and the nitrogen problem require landscaping. This makes the planting of public spaces more relevant than ever. The fair is therefore full of (new) products and services from the sector to meet these challenges. There is also a place of knowledge, sessions are organized on inclusive construction and many conferences can be followed.
Unlike previous years, visitors to the Salon de l’Espace Public will also be able to discover this year the Salon de la Mobilité, which previously took place in November. The intertwining of these two domains is increasing; think about themes such as sustainability, nature inclusion, accessible smart cities and health. By combining these events on one exhibition floor, visitors can be offered a comprehensive picture of the developments taking place.
