Drees & Sommer at Real Vienna 2010

Once again, Drees & Sommer is represented at Real Vienna with its own booth  (C0319 in Hall C) at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center from May 18 - 20, 2010. The main topic of this year's real estate fair is the profitability of Green Buildings. This will be the subject of a 'Property Talks' panel discussion on the Investments & Services stage in Hall C on May 18. Ralph Scheer, Managing Director of Drees & Sommer Austria, will address the topic 'Green Buildings - does tomorrow's market lead justify today's additional cost?'

"We are seeing a stabilization of the economic situation in the European real estate market. This is resulting in an increase in demand for Green Building services - both for new buildings and the energy optimization of portfolios," says Ralph Scheer. One sign of this trend is the German Sustainable Building Certificate (DGNB) with which the Austrian Sustainable Building Council (ÖGNB) has been certifying particularly sustainable buildings since the beginning of the year. As a founding member of both the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and the Austrian Sustainable Real Estate Council (ÖGNI), Drees & Sommer is currently working on a European framework that will allow specifications to be adapted to local requirements. Experts at the Drees & Sommer booth can provide information on this.

The other area of focus is the real estate service provider's activities in the Eastern European property market: Drees & Sommer is supporting numerous clients by providing Project Management, Real Estate Consulting, and Engineering services in Bulgaria, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania. For example, the company is the project control partner for Daimler's new automotive factory in Kecskemét, Hungary.
