Permasteelisa Group at the CTBUH World Congress in Shanghai

Permasteelisa Group at the CTBUH World Congress in Shanghai

May 2012 - Permasteelisa Group is the confirmed Platinum Sponsor to the Council on Tall Building and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) 9th World Congress, 19-21 September at the Grand Hyatt Jin Mao in Shanghai.


The event, entitled "Asia Ascending: The Age of the Sustainable Skyscraper City", will bring together 800 tall building owners, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, planners and policy-makers to address the issues facing the new skyscraper cities around the world. Is the skyscraper a sustainable building type? Can tall buildings truly reduce and harvest enough energy to become carbon neutral? What is the full impact on the city and the lives of its inhabitants by developing skyward? And what support mechanisms and urban infrastructure are required for such growth?


Representatives from Permasteelisa Group will be speaking and exhibiting at the Congress, discussing the latest trends in the industry and presenting the latest technical innovations developed by the Group in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency as well as safety and acoustic performances.


As the Platinum Sponsor, Permasteelisa Group, together with LIXIL Corp. will also support all aspects of the Congress’s education and networking events, and become the exclusive sponsor of the Congress Dinner, which will take place on the evening of Thursday, 20 September, in the Grand Hyatt Shanghai’s Grand Ballroom facility. The Congress Dinner is always a social highlight of CTBUH conferences.


The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (www.ctbuh.org) is the world’s leading resource for professionals focused on the design and construction of tall buildings and future cities. A not-for-profit organization based at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the group facilitates the exchange of the latest knowledge available on tall buildings around the world through events, publications and its extensive network of international representatives. Its free database on tall buildings, The Skyscraper Center, is updated daily with detailed information, images and news. The CTBUH also developed the international standards for measuring tall building height and is recognized as the arbiter for bestowing such designations as “The World’s Tallest Building.”
