Knauf Insulation launches competition to find the building innovators of tomorrow

Knauf Insulation’s ‘Race to Zero’ is an international competition to find innovative solutions to construction industry challenges while creating buildings that are good for people and good for the environment.

The construction industry is undergoing a revolutionary transformation and we are excited to offer students and recent graduates with engineering, design and construction backgrounds a unique opportunity to help us shape a more sustainable future.

  • The European Commission has launched a strategy called the Renovation Wave — a plan to renovate 35 million buildings by 2030 — with a key focus on social housing.

  • To achieve such a major ambition, pioneering new innovations are needed to shorten delivery times, resolve labor shortages and upscale the entire renovation process.

Our competition aims to find innovative solutions to these challenges.
