New procedures and calculation methods allow new architectural masterpieces. Is the appropriate construction products increased a value placed on: environmental product declarations. (tdx) At the choice of the suitable construction ensure nowadays particularly on the viability or sustainability of the product. Renowned planners and architects find themselves an enormous responsibility and go ahead to lead by example so that sustainability in the building is continued. Two such architectural example occurred recently. The interest of planners in these prototypes was the architecture for future living concepts of sustainability and energy efficiency. Building materials were analysed and evaluated and at the end they had, through an environmental product Declaration (EPD) of the Institute of building and environment (IBU), construction products declared the nose forward.
\”Lace and blunt angle, horizontal and vertical surfaces in every direction: the Libeskind Villa\” is truly exceptional and reminds one of the Architect Daniel Libeskind Diamonds. The gem thanks to the large glass surfaces and the material zinc comes to the rays. \”The decision for RHEINZINK was easy for Daniel Libeskind: it is a great, beautiful, and at the same time sustainable material\”. Helpful and the stumbling block for his decision was the environmental product Declaration of the IBU, which transparently sets out all information on the material. Sowurden equipped with zinc facade and roof connections. Another highlight: the in-roof solar plant, which was integrated into the zinc roof area as a non-visible Solarthermieelemente. It provides in conjunction with an intelligent control system of RHEINZINK-2Q and the combination with a geothermal energy system for low energy costs and an autonomous heating heat supply of the building CO2 balance of the roofing is therefore further improved. Best energy standards also provides the insulation of the building. With the generation of 032 of ISOVER came another construction product to use, which is equipped with an EPD of the IBU.
