Federal UMWELT & BAUEN Award 2021 for elobau

elobau receives the prestigious Federal Award 2021 for the extension of Plant II. The jury honours the energy-plus building in timber construction at the award ceremony in the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in Berlin.

Together with F64 Architekten from Kempten, we have received a further award. The expansion of our Plant II in Leutkirch was awarded the Federal UMWELT & BAUEN prize by the jury on 7 September. Not only because the energy-plus building is made of wood, but also because the entire building concept takes the environment and the employees into account.

The environment, since the energy-efficient building generates more energy than it consumes thanks to the combination of photovoltaics, a heat pump and effective natural daylight. And also the employees, because the daylight input, the timber construction and also the acoustics of building sections 3 and 4 are intended to contribute to a sense of well-being. The “ecological” and “social” dimensions of our understanding of sustainability were in focus here from the very beginning.

The Federal ENVIRONMENT & BUILDING Award was created to bring together showcase projects that will serve as inspiration for future building owners. For this purpose, successful projects are awarded in different categories and made accessible online for all interested parties. After the great response to the first Federal Award in 2020, the Federal Award was offered again in 2021. In addition to the HolzbauPlus Award, the extension of our Plant II has received its second award.
