Graz, 26.08.2021 – The housing project “Stadt.Land.Kuss” from the real estate developer AVORIS, which was accompanied by ATP sustain, has been awarded the klimaaktiv Bronze (design)award by Austria’s Ministry for Climate Action.
“The award assesses and evaluates the energy efficiency, the locational and executional quality, the quality of the building materials and the construction, and central aspects related to comfort and health”, states the award certificate from the Ministry.
The new building with 13 residential units, which is being constructed in the west of Graz, combines urban comfort with green living. Situated in a traffic-free zone it offers generous open areas in the form of balconies, terraces, and gardens.
From the very start of the design process, the project focused on the development of an energy-efficient building method with the lowest possible CO2 footprint. This approach includes the resource-friendly generation of energy via a water/water heat pump and roof-mounted PV plant. Sustainable insulated bricks with integrated thermal insulation are being used in the place of standard EPS insulation panels.
By fulfilling the basic klimaaktiv criteria, the residential project “Stadt.Land.Kuss” meets the Austrian quality requirements for sustainable residential and service buildings. Accompanying and offering advice about projects with the aim of achieving such building certifications is one of the core tasks of ATP sustain.
