Building for the future

When building a new city quarter the prime objective is of course to create a place that is worth living in. This is not only an opportunity to set new standards in terms of building quality and features, but also in terms of sustainability.

Sustainability has always been a priority for Frankonia. This was not due to blinkered ideology, but for purely practical reasons. When one looks at the energy consumption of a building alone, economy and environmental considerations are inseparable. In fact it is no surprise that economy and ecology have a common root: the ancient Greek word “oikos”, which means, “house” or “household”.

To put it succinctly: sustainability is worth it, particularly in the long term.
