On an undeveloped plot of land in Düsseldorf's Media Harbour, a modern office building is to be constructed using the wood-hybrid building system. This process replaces many of the components that are usually built with reinforced concrete by timber. The interior quality will involve high comfort standards and post-corona aspects will already be taken into account.
“With the expansion of the Silvers in Düsseldorf, we are building today the way that will be built in the future. Wood as a building material will once again become increasingly important from a sustainability perspective.”
When planning and constructing modern buildings, the manufacturing processes of the building materials are increasingly being taken into consideration. Not only the transport route and the availability of a material are important, but also the energy required to produce the material and the emissions caused in the process. In specialist circles, this is also known as “embodied carbon” or “grey energy”. In addition to the actual construction qualities of a material, the environmental impact of production, transport, dismantling and disposal is also a decision criterion for a sustainable choice of material. For example, the entire cement industry causes about 8% of the greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. This is making the construction and real estate industry rethink the use of a wide range of building materials. At Deka Immobilien, for one of our own new construction projects, this has prompted us to start building today in a way that we will see much more often in the future.
This wood hybrid construction method uses resources efficiently and offers great design freedom. Illustration according to the current planning status.

Die 17 SDGs bilden mit ihren 169 Unterzielen den Kern der Agenda für eine nachhaltige
Entwicklung bis 2030. Die Ziele wurden 2015 von allen UNO-Mitgliedstaaten verabschiedet
und berücksichtigen die wirtschaftliche, soziale und ökologische Dimension einer
nachhaltigen Entwicklung. Die globale Partnerschaft aller Länder sowie der Beitrag des
Privatsektors und nicht-staatlicher Organisationen sind für das Erreichen der SDGs entscheidend.
Inner-city redensification and thus use of urban resources.
Further development of the dynamic district of Düsseldorf's Media Harbour.
The building services concept already takes into account post-corona requirements
through higher air exchange rates and increased demands on the indoor climate.
In addition, pollutant-free and very low-polluting materials are used in the interior construction.
The fundamental decision for a wood-hybrid building method and the conceptual
support according to the cradle-to-cradle principle address this SDG.
