SÜBA has been at the forefront of using renewable energies in its projects and has set itself the goal of being fossil-fuel free in current and future projects.
This is achieved by establishing alternative energy systems including groundwater and geothermal probes in connection with heat pump systems. Concrete core activation systems turn ceilings into storage mediums to give off heat in the winter and cool in the summer. This results in low energy requirements, high levels of comfort, and pleasant radiant heat in all apartments.
New technologies make it possible to control temperatures in SÜBA residential complexes using the least amount of energy. These resourcesaving measures not only reduce general energy requirements and thus contribute to climate protection but are also reflected in the long term in the comparatively low-operating costs for users.
Sustainability and construction
A sustainable building does not only mean the efficient and sustainable use of energy in buildings. Decreasing the consumption of resources and using recyclable resources also play a major role.
That is why all new SÜBA buildings are certified according to klimaaktiv, the climate initiative of the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism.
The criteria include not only high-energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources but also quality of infrastructure, use of ecological building materials, and achievement of thermal comfort. In coordination with construction companies commissioned by SÜBA, it is guaranteed that resource-saving building materials are used, creating high-quality and long-term usable living spaces for our customers.
In addition to our strategy of sustainability with new projects, SÜBA is re-examining the potential energy savings of its existing properties, their renovation and reconstruction, and further construction. Simply by using existing structures, the energy and resource consumption of building materials used can be lowered. In addition, the revitalisation of existing buildings not only contributes to the inner-city densification and connected space savings but also makes a significant contribution to the preservation of the local building culture.
