The event targeted a theme “Automation and Controls for Smart Buildings” and was attended by Lebanese MEP consultants and architects, as well as staff from the technological universities in Beirut. As a part of the event, Mr. Pikkarainen gave a presentation about energy optimization and simulation in buildings that drew attention among the visitors.
The seminar also included a separate, small-scale fair for companies to showcase and demonstrate their services and products. Granlund´s Lebanese partner, Next Engineering was one of the main promotors of the event.

We are also planning to arrange a separate seminar focusing solely on Granlund Manager later in the spring,“ says Mr. Fady Zughaib, the Managing Director of Next Engineering.
