Schöck Inc. was one of our great sponsors for the inaugural Building Tech Forum. The Schöck group, with 13 companies and 630 employees is headquartered in Baden-Baden, Germany. Schöck's work increases building efficiency and reduces maintenance and renewal costs for buildings, which made them the perfect partner for our event.
Schöck's focus is on the development of ready components that are part of the statics with building physics at a high value, such as the avoidance of thermal bridges or impact noise in the building. The group offers innovative solutions to thermal bridging, a common problem in new construction and existing structures. The concept of thermal bridging is explained in the infographic below, taken from Schöck's website.
