Martinshöfe – green and sustainable
Building and living in harmony with nature. We care deeply about environmental sustainability. When developing districts, we strive to use resources sparingly and in an environmentally friendly manner and to ensure an efficient energy supply.

Green roofs – a coup for the climate
Sustainable mobility concept
Great construction, great climate
The building sector is responsible for around 40% of CO2 emissions. As such, new residential construction can serve as an important impetus for climate and environmental protection, and an opportunity to achieve a great deal in this area, right from the laying of the first stone. This is an intrinsic part of plans for the Martinshöfe site, resulting in buildings that meet modern energy standards. Crucially, BUWOG looks at the sustainability of building materials over the entire life cycle of a building, from the initial planning to the complete recycling of the materials. To accomplish this, BUWOG has joined Madaster, a digital library of building materials.
Madaster is a central global registry for materials, buildings and infrastructure and a platform to register, document and archive the materials used in construction. It simplifies the process of reusing materials, promotes smart design and avoids waste.
Most of the buildings will have green roofs, which ensure natural insulation and a pleasant living climate. Green roofs are also habitats for insects, birds and microorganisms and are important for rainwater retention. Green roof surfaces cool the air naturally when water evaporates via the leaves, thus ensuring a pleasant microclimate.
