Green building

Our approach

We believe that building ecologically means building in a future-orientated and environmentally friendly way. For this reason, we preferably use natural materials that do not put a strain on the environment and health.

Following a holistic approach, we also ensure that the engineering and maintenance of the building are designed with these criteria kept in mind.

In addition, we strengthen local manufacturers, preferably working with selected construction companies from Munich and surrounding and primarily sourcing building materials from local suppliers.

Healthy living

When selecting our construction materials, we do not only ensure high quality, but also make sure the source products themselves are immaculate and were processed in an environmentally friendly way.

To identify these building materials, we focus on products being awarded the independent eco-label The Blue Angel. The world's first and most well-known environment-related label tests products and services on their environmental safety, certifying materials being designed and processed in an environmentally conscious and health-friendly way.

For the interior walls we preferably use colors that are especially low in solvents and formaldehyde and which limit the amount of plasticizers and preservatives to a minimum. In case of windows and doors, we pay attention to low-emission paints and coatings that meet the strict requirements to avoid risky additives and, for example, help to minimize the risk of allergies.

In sanitary facilities we apply special joint sealants, which are produced without carcinogenic or mutagenic substances and do not contain harmful preservatives. As to the equipment and design of the interiors we preferably use natural products. The renewable raw material wood in the form of parquet or large planks for the flooring. Natural stone or fine stone for the floors and walls in the bathrooms.

These aspects are important to us, providing good air and a healthy indoor climate – the best condition to feel perfectly comfortable at home.

Power efficiency

Energy-efficient materials improve the energy balance of our properties. From the glazing over the walls up to the roof: We build a solid "case" that keeps the heat inside the house, thus optimizing heat requirements and energy consumption.

In addition, our villas are being equipped with intelligent technologies, economically producing and specifically using the required energy. Depending on the local situation and possibilities, we implement solar systems, heat pumps, combined heat and power stations or gas condensing boiler systems.

We also keep future developments in mind, providing our villas with future-looking technologies. For example, we already implement connections for electric service stations in all our underground parking spaces.
