The benefits of building with steel
speak for themselves

Steel is a versatile building material that offers a number of advantages. It is produced with low emissions and is endlessly recyclable, which in turn results in a very low environmental foortprint in comparison to other building materials.

Due to its inherent material properties and load carrying capacity, steel makes it possible to have large spans with slender construction. The slender design optimises the use of space, saves resources and reduces costs.In addition to that, prefabrication and short assembly times enable an agile construction process, which in turn leads to further cost savings and increases the overall profitability of a project.

Steel also offers a further benefit in terms of flexibility of use. Steel constructions can be easily extended or modified to adapt to changing requirements. This extends the service life of a building, saves costs and makes a further contribution to sustainability.

The transformation of construction industry: sustainable transformation for a climate-friendly future

The term 'sustainability' has evolved from a trend to become the most important guiding principle in the construction industry. These developments are based on the increasingly visible consequences of climate change and the growing awareness of climate protection.

In response to these challenges, both society and politicians have set ambitious targets. One such example is the European Green Deal, in which the EU has committed to reduce  net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 through the Fit for 55 package.

The political discourse in the construction industry is increasingly focused on the need for a sustainable transformation of construction industry. This transformation  offers new opportunities for green innovation and helps to ensure a livable future for the generations to come.

Circular Economy

The circular economy is a fundamental concept in sustainability, applicable to the entire economic system and its individual sectors.

This approach aims to maximise the use of existing resources and minimise waste by recycling or reusing materials. This significantly reduces the carbon footprint as well as saves costs.

At Peiner Träger GmbH, recycling is part of our everyday practice. By using 100% steel scrap, we utilise existing raw materials and thus make a significant contribution to conserving resources.

Political measures to regulate sustainable construction include laws and regulations that promote energy efficiency, environmental compatibility and conservation of resources.

These include building certification, building regulations and programmes to support more sustainable building projects. They aim to drive sustainable transformation of the construction industry and combat climate change.

Building Certification

Building sustainability certifications are a key factor in the evaluation and certification of sustainable buildings. Certification systems such as DGNB, LEED or BREEAM take into account a variety of assessment criterion related to environmental, economic and sociological aspects.

The main component of sustainability certification is the ecological building balance. The focus here is on the environmental product declaration. It provides information on the environmental impact of the building materials being used.

Environmental Product Declaration

The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) provides detailed and standardised information on the environmental impact of construction materials or building components. It includes quantitative, objective and verified data on resource utilisation, energy use, emissions and waste.

Peiner Träger GmbH is certified with regard to these criteria. Find out more about our environmental product declaration.

Construction Material Certification

Construction material certifications confirm compliance with certain environmental and quality standards for construction products. They verify that materials fulfil special requirements in terms of sustainability, health and safety.
