„KAV is amongst the most excellent companies in Hungary”

KAV Hungária was awarded a prize in the Innovation and Ongoing Perfectioning and the Culture of Recognition categories in the Hungary’s Most Excellent Companies Award Programme.

This year, Investors in People Hungary (IIP) and the British Chamber of Commerce in Hungary (BCCH) award the prizes in the Hungary’s Most Excellent Companies Award for the second time. This programme was launched by the two organisations in 2016. By awarding a prize to organisational solutions that are also outstanding in international relations, they aim to set examples to be followed by the actors of the Hungarian economy, and to create a community that helps to raise awareness of the most excellent practices and to spread them.

At the awards gala, KAV Hungária received two prizes. According to the justification “the company is an envied actor in the Hungarian construction industry in many aspects; its competitive advantage is due to its innovation-oriented organisation and its maximum demand for quality”.

The Hungary’s Most Excellent Companies Programme certifies the quality, consistency and business usefulness of human resource management practices, based on the criteria of the international Investors in People Standard. The Investors in People Standard and accreditation system was launched in 1991 in Great Britain with the intention of supporting companies with useful ideas, and to provide a professional framework that creates competitive advantage through the development of the organisational background and its alignment with business goals. In the past 26 years, this Standard became the international benchmark for organisational development and human resources management. International accreditation is granted for good practices, which signals, as a strong distinguishing trademark, that the company is a better workplace and business partner than others.

Cölöpökre épített középkori világ az üvegtornyok árnyékában
Az ALUTA - mint a hazai alumínium homlokzatépítők és nyílászáró gyártók egyetlen hazai szakmai egyesülete - minden évben szervez bel- és külföldi tanulmányutakat tagjai számára. Idén a közel 18 millió lakosú Hollandiába vezetett a külföldi utunk, mely során kiváló szervezéssel sikerült jelentős mennyiségű különleges épületet meglátogatnunk. Csapatunk Amszterdam és Rotterdam városait vette górcső alá, mely során az európai és a gyarmati történelem, a művészettörténet és a mérnökkultúra máshol nem látható egyvelege tárult a szemünk elé. Ha cölöpre épített városról beszélünk, legtöbbször mindenkinek Velence jut az eszébe. Pedig Amszterdam is így épült, mi több, így épül ma is. A jórészt tengerszint alatti autómentes belváros hajózható csatornákkal szabdalt kajla középkori házsorai, mint egymásra borult részeg gyufás skatulyák mutatják sok száz éve büszke arcukat a történelmi viharoknak. Túlélték a tűzvészeket, a pestist és az árvizek sokszori támadását, és tessék itt vannak sok száz éve. Azt súgják a ferde falak, hogy így kell az értéktelen mocsár helyén mérnöki tudással gátakat és csatornákat, raktárakat és egy jól lakható várost, hova tovább országot építeni.

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 house, with its unique shapes, could be completed at a very high standard of quality without making compromises. We spoke about this process with György Pintér, the owner of the house.

Custom windows and doors beyond the standards
Just as in many areas of the world, ‘unique’ and ‘self-expression’ are the strongest buzzwords; so change the needs of architects and developers. However, most door and window manufacturers are finding it difficult to go beyond the standard items, although this area also offers many innovations in the field of architecture when it comes to sincerely rethinking structures.

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.

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.

KAV also helps the work of architects
From now on, KAV assists the work of architects with a complimentary consulting service. This is because, closing systems are such special structural elements that their thorough knowledge and following the trends is nearly impossible for those not specialised in this field. Now architects may ask their questions of Norbert Kiss, who worked as a designer for a long time himself, and now he has been strengthening the KAV team for years.

Production of custom doors and windows at the KAV plant
Most domestic companies selling aluminium doors and windows do not have their own production capacity. However, in KAV's imposing manufacturing plant, they are able to resolve even seemingly impossible profile connections. This is where further thought-out versions of Schüco or Reynaers profile elements and completely unique door and window solutions are manufactured, designed and developed by KAV engineers. We talked to Albert Herbut, the head of KAV's Kisbér plant, about the production processes and the operation of the plant.

Windows in the service of maximising the view
Frameless windows are favourite elements in houses built in modern and minimalistic styles, since, thanks to the nearly invisible frames, the external and internal spaces almost connect; in this way, nothing disturbs the view, and also natural light may flow into residential spaces through a greater surface.

The Architect needs to think with the door and window specialist
People at KAV can think together with the project, suggesting fancy solutions that often go beyond installation instructions. They think about it, add some parts that make a door trendy, no matter how strange it sounds at first. They feel the fine details that need to be put into it. They can think together with their architect colleague.

With unique windows to Norway
Aluminium windows and doors also play a prominent role in Norwegian architecture, not only in public construction, but also in residential buildings and condominium investments. The long-term goal of KAV is, after Iceland, to gain experience in Norway, so it applied for admission to the Hungarian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (MNKK). We talked about the possibilities with the founder of the chamber, Klára Jankovics, and Beatrix Kosztyi, foreign economic attaché, the secretary-general of the chamber

The relationship between aluminium doors and windows and the façade
In parallel with the advent of the latest aluminium door and window solutions, including filigree case systems and large glass surfaces, façades have also been transformed in the family home market. In addition to functionality, design also plays a key role in more and more buildings. However, architects rarely involve professionals in the process of designing doors, windows and façades. According to Krisztián Vatai, executive director of Facade Design & Building, who is engaged in the design, construction and production of façades, a change of attitude and education is needed to change this.

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.
