A Business Ethics Prize is granted to KAV Hungária

Since 2000, the foundation of the Business Ethics Prize, it has been a renowned recognition in Hungarian business life. It was established by Professor Ervin László, Chairman of the Budapest Klub, and Mária Demcsák, founder and chief editor of Piac & Profit business magazine, with a view to draw attention to domestic businesses that set an example by their activity in responsible and ethical management, business presence and strengthening trust between society and the business sphere.

This year 46 companies submitted eligible applications, through nominations by economic actors and chambers, and also individually. KAV Hungária is one of the companies awarded a prize.
The panel, consisting of the founders and managers of earlier winners, decided on the basis of a separate set of criteria, including the importance of consciousness and social commitment towards a liveable and sustainable world for the individual company.

The Business Ethics Prize was awarded at the awards ceremony held by Piac & Profit in the evening of 16 November. This event was the closing event of the Hungarian Sustainability Summit, as before.
The management of KAV Hungária would like to say thank you for the Prize and extends its congratulations to the other winners.

Windows in the Design Process from an Architect’s Perspective
The question of when to engage window experts in the design process often arises. In this context, architect and head of the Archista architectural firm, László Kenyeres, shares his experiences. He believes that in today's architectural design process, windows and doors are a critical aspect because they represent one of the most complex parts of a building. Therefore, even those not well-versed in the world of windows may require external assistance to confidently complete an execution plan.

THE MARKET SHARE OF ALUMINIUM WINDOWS AND DOORS IS CONTINUOUSLY INCREASING IN RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS
The market share of aluminium and steel doors and windows in Hungary is constantly increasing with regard to single-family home projects as well. However, even in this stable market, the year 2021 introduced a number of unexpected situations: cancelled professional events, shortages of raw materials and supply chain disruptions. We spoke to Károly Eiles, the company's investment and general contracting consultant, about the impressions with which Alukönigstahl Kft. (the distributor of Schüco and Jansen systems in Hungary) closed this challenging year.

Ethical operations raise even SMEs to the top
Ethical operations raise even SMEs to the top
Following the large enterprise sector, operating ethically is becoming increasingly important for small and medium-sized enterprises, too. These companies not only take into account the interests of their clients and suppliers but also those of their environment and employees. They set an example by their activity and attitude and strengthen trust. This attitude may constitute a basis for long-term operation and economic stability, and what is more, employees of the Y and Z generations are more eager to opt for an ethically operating workplace.

When a dreamt-of work of art becomes a reality
Properties being created in an ongoing KAV project may nearly be interpreted as works of art. No company with relevant references could be found, either in Hungary or abroad, for the implementation of buildings that were considered unique at the European level too. We talked about this special job with Mihály Fodor, the Managing Director of the implementing company, and András Havasy, the project’s Technical Director.

Why is it worth choosing an aluminium front door?
When building or renovating a house, developers and architects may be wondering when it is worth deciding on an aluminium front door. In addition to durability, the main argument may be that aluminium can deliver dimensions and solutions that neither wood nor plastics allow.

The changing economic environment and rising energy prices are also impacting the construction industry. But how might the market for premium segment windows change? According to KAV's CEO, Károly Lovász, the focus will shift towards the issue of shading, and it is crucial for builders to select companies with a stable background and a qualified workforce.

The evolution of blinds
Climate change and increasingly sophisticated customer demands have accelerated the evolution of shading systems, not just of windows and doors. While in the past the goal was complete darkening, nowadays light control and maximum transparency are the main considerations. Thanks to this, most client choose lamellar and textile shadings.

Development by KAV of customised shades
The hot and dry summers experienced over the last few years due to climate change have made suitable shading solutions ever more important. However, the standard systems available on the market do not meet individual customer needs either in terms of movement mechanisms or their form. That is why KAV’s engineers are offering customised aluminium shades that reflect contemporary trends in building. Károly Lovász, Managing Director of KAV, provides an insight into these special solutions.

The Basics of Doors and Windows – A Conversation with Architect György Hoffmann
Huge, transparent surfaces that create almost a direct connection with the surroundings. Architect György Hoffmann believes that in modern architecture, there is no longer a need for walls, as windows and pillars can also fulfill the structural functions. Our conversation also reveals what primarily influences the thinking of architect-designers and what it takes to establish a common language between the client and the designer.

For a smart home, product selection is key
For a newly built property, in terms of windows and doors, one of the most important questions is whether prospective residents would like a building management system in the house, as all solutions need to be tailored to this in the design phase. For today's systems, system-specific connector units and auxiliary modules must already be planned and positioned so that they can remain completely hidden.
