Sustainable construction and building technology

Sustainable construction is primarily about the planning and realisation of a building that pursues the basic idea of sustainability. The objective is to minimize the consumption of energy and resources. To achieve this goal, all life cycle phases of a building must be taken into account. It is also important to optimize all factors that influence the building’s life cycle: raw material extraction, construction and dismantling.

The following factors must be taken into account in sustainable house construction:

  • Reduction of energy consumption
  • Reduction in the consumption of operating resources
  • Lowest possible transport costs/routes for components
  • safe return of all materials used
  • Possibility of reuse
  • Conservation of natural areas (through space-saving construction)

For a new building to be environmentally friendly and energy efficient, several questions must be answered. Which building materials should be used? How can electricity be produced sustainably?
