Fewer building defects caused by construction chemistry

Sustainable building in the 21st century –

Technical infrastructure has played a key role in architecture as far back as in ancient times, as is evidenced by impressive examples from the time of the Roman Empire. Roman aqueducts and cisterns demonstrate their builders’ detailed knowledge of the characteristics and durability of materials.

Today, the technical infrastructure not only presents a large proportion of the assets of an industrial nation, such as Germany, but it is also a critical factor in terms of global competitiveness. However, the current condition of this infrastructure gives rise to concern, a fact that is evident from...
