Die richtige Konstruktion


Choosing the right construction

There is huge potential to reduce CO₂ in the building envelope if you choose the right façade construction. The need for aluminium during construction can be reduced by planning larger façade modules.

Reducing the number of materials required means fewer CO₂ emissions during manufacturing – and also fewer joints for large units, which also reduces heat loss. As a result, the improved U value and corresponding increase in energy efficiency have a positive impact on the carbon footprint.

Overall, the right structural changes above and beyond altering the module sizes can mean material savings of up to 40% compared to constructions without material optimisation.
