To be able to develop real solutions for the future, we need to ask ourselves the following questions before each new project: How sustainable and efficient is our project? What consequences will there be? What kind of contribution are we making to society and the environment? Which processes do we need to rethink and which parts can we keep?
The more detailed the plan, the better we can build in a sustainable and resource-efficient manner. And this is exactly how things work at Viega World. It sets a new standard for sustainability, so it's no surprise that it has already received the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) certification with the highest rating level of "Platinum" before it has even been completed.
Viega World brings together sustainability with health and environmental protection. We can only act in a truly sustainable manner if we take a holistic view of all areas and network them with each other. At Viega World, we applied the BIM (building information modelling) methodology, which helped us to plan where energy can be saved while maintaining drinking water quality and which processes may still need to be optimised. We were supported in this by the Fraunhofer ISE Institute.
Together, we succeeded in creating a project that is unique in its construction today – but with an energy concept can also be applied to future buildings.
