Setting our customers up for sustainability success

Buildings have a fundamental direct and indirect impact on the environment – and to our health and wellbeing – from construction to occupancy and to demolition. Our building solutions have gained recognition in helping our customers to reach the highest levels of Green Building Rating Systems, such as LEED, that identifies healthy building design and green construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

New heights in Vienna

Vienna’s latest, 136-meters tall, Austro skyscraper is heated and cooled using water from the local Danube Canal. The thermally active building systems (TABS) uses our Contec modules that ensure perfect temperature regulation on each of the 38 floors.This type of heating and cooling is exceptionally energy-efficient and ideal for renewable energy sources. It therefore represents an excellent choice whenever a stringent sustainability standard needs to be met.

Zero emissions, maximum comfort

Greenspace PCTG in Asturias is one of the few net-zero office buildings in Spain and a true masterpiece of sustainable construction. The construction followed the rules of circular economy and places energy-efficiency, healthy architecture and low-emission materials at the core. The building has positive energy balance – generating more energy than it uses, and our Thermally Active Building Systems (TABS) offered an important element in minimizing the building’s energy use and creating net-zero heating and cooling.

Sustainably built skyscraper combines work and life

The newest attraction in Frankfurt’s skyline, the OMNITURM, is a modern 45-floor skyscraper combining public space, offices and apartments into one modern, sustainably recognized landmark. Our pre-assembled Heat-Interface Units enabled needs-based heat distribution for each occupant, accommodating all individual desired for ambient temperature. Decentralized heating systems are superior not only in hygienic aspects but also in energy efficiency since they run on lower temperatures.
