CO2 Savings in Projects: The Q

Great Honour: The Q Has Received the Polis Award for Urban and Project Development!

One of our largest revitalisation projects, The Q in Nuremberg, recently received the polis Award. The award recognises projects that contribute to the public good of a city beyond their own scope. A major reason for the award is the immense saving in climate-damaging emissions that could be achieved at The Q by not building a new building. Our calculations showed that by revitalising the former logistics centre (and not building a comparable new building elsewhere), more than 33,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents were saved! Werner Sobek is responsible for the structural and facade engineering of this exemplary project.
