“The DGNB criteria are strict – but we adhered to all the requirements throughout the entire demolition,” says managing director Peter Matteo, summarizing the successful cooperation with the subcontractor AWR Abbruch. “The FOUR is setting new impulses in the area of sustainability and focusing on the careful use of resources from the first construction step.”
This also corresponds to the objective of the dismantling certificate of the DGNB, which makes an important contribution to the more responsible use of resources in the construction and real estate industry. The main aim is to bring building materials into a cycle, to support recycling, and to reduce the masses to be disposed of.
Various measures have to be taken to meet these criteria. For example, Groß & Partner had the windows and the listed facade on the site professionally expanded and stored so that they could be recycled for the new building. In addition, Groß & Partner implemented professional construction site communication, which is always available if you have any questions and which provides regular information on all processes on the construction site.
“Transparency is a decisive factor for us,” says managing director Peter Matteo. Johanna Kübchen, who is responsible for the cooperation with the DGNB, adds: “This applies not only to the outside but also to the inside: During the dismantling, we recorded all material flows and, together with AWR Abbruch, constantly considered how we could improve the recycling of the existing materials and be able to optimize the associated transport routes. ”All in all, the high-rise ensemble FOUR alone represents a real challenge for every project developer. The additional development of a holistic, sustainable demolition process is all the more important. But, as Matteo emphasizes: “To be a pioneer is what we expect from us and all of our projects.”
