What measures is Steiner taking to reduce the environmental impact of the project?

The Ecolint extension project includes several measures related to sustainability.

Savings in heating are guaranteed by the installation of an intelligent air circulation system aimed at recovering cool air in summer and tempered air in winter (Canadian well).

The use of high solar factor glazing will limit the energy consumption needed to cool the building.

In terms of materials, the use of mud bricks offers several advantages. In addition to being a recycled material with a low grey energy footprint, raw earth provides very good thermal and acoustic insulation.

Finally, the concrete from the demolition will be crushed and recycled.
