The building design enables flexible development of the block and reuse of construction components. We build ecologically and create environments that are both functional and natural.
The concept is designed and built in line with the “Built Positive” initiative, which guarantees circular economy approaches and minimises waste generation by design. Purity of materials, non-toxicity, safety, and health are part of our quality assurance and value measurement. The welfare of people, nature, and the environment are strong considerations during the materials selection process.
The buildings are designed in a manner that maximises the technical and biological cycles of the components. Since every component can be considered a raw material, identification of the components and materials is crucial. Waste generation is minimised by design at every stage: materials, products, and the buildings themselves. All materials used are documented in the material bank, allowing them to be used again in the future.
Flexible and diverse reuse of components enables a longer life cycle for the building parts, resulting in lower material consumption and reducing the carbon footprint of the construction. Flexible structural solutions are implemented by grouping the permanent structures and technical systems in the solid foundation, as well as by utilising transferable frameworks and modular structural elements.
Urban mining enables the management of man-made materials, for example buildings, and their subsequent reuse as industrial raw materials, as part of a bigger material utilisation concept and thus links to waste reduction and circular economy thinking.
