Sustainability at GROPYUS
Reducing the carbon footprint of buildings over their full lifecyle is part of our mission. Based on a deep understanding of the construction value chain and a holistic approach we create accessible and affordable living while respecting planetary boundaries.
We create buildings that cater to a broad variety of people with respect to age, ethnicity, gender, income, or lifestyles. Our buildings are designed according to "universal design" principles, including full accessibility and adaptability to different user preferences.
Our buildings and operations aim to add more resources over their life cycle than have been used. By applying circular economy principles, resource-efficient product design and production we are able to reduce the resource backpack of or product significantly. Relying on the Digital Twin we also hold full account of our material stock and performance for continuous learning and resource optimisation.
In our product and operations, we avoid carbon emissions and will sequester more carbon over the full life cycle than we emit. Our focus is on both: embodied carbon and operational carbon. We already achieve "net-zero" energy operations in our buildings by integrating photovoltaics into the building envelope.
Our buildings and flats strive to achieve the highest level of comfort in multi-family housing . We focus on supporting the wellbeing of our users by having visible timber in the interior, designing for best daylight access, high acoustic insulation, and thermal comfort. Implementing circadian lighting and biophilia concepts will be the next steps to provide "well-buildings".
Sustainability through technology
With our Building Operating System we are able to optimise the building over a lifetime. On top it helps assets holders as well as tenants to visualise and improve resource usage to foster behaviour change.
