Altered building process
One of the most important tasks for today’s building industry is to identify working methods to change the building process and produce ecologically sustainable solutions and healthy buildings. GreenZone represents an opportunity to implement these methods through technical solutions as well as the building process itself.
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE LEADS TO SICK BUILDINGS
There are many environmental problems in the building industr y. These are often caused by shortcomings in building technology, poor material selection, chemical use, fragmented environmental solutions and high energy consumption while building, in the production of building material and in operation of the finished building. Studies by WHO show that 30 percent of all buildings raised after the Second World War are so-called sick buildings.
With a new approach and a comprehensive view of the entire building process, from design to operation, future buildings can offer substantially better living and working environments while, at the same time, taking nature’s terms into account.
