Do the current evaluation criteria for sustainability in construction lead to the desired goal of energy-, resource- and climate-saving construction methods? What can sustainable buildings of the future look like? Can modular building systems offer solutions for different forms of living and working?
These and other compelling questions were presented in two lectures based on practical examples in the fourth date of the lecture series "Meet the circular economy" - Sustainable innovations in practice" and discussed with around 35 students from various departments as well as private citizens. Klaus Dosch, managing director of Rescore GmbH and head of the Faktor X agency, presented a new model for determining resource efficiency in the construction industry, which is based on a holistic approach. Using the Faktor X housing development "Neue Höfe Dürwiß" as an example, a successfully implemented example of the concept in practice was discussed. Ivan Mallinowski, Managing Director of Containerwerk, explained an innovative, patented concept for the new use of disused overseas containers as residential and office units with modular interior fittings. In addition to high energy efficiency and very short construction times of the building modules, the advantage of the industrial production method and mobility of the building modules for later use in other locations was particularly emphasized.
