SUSTAINABLE BUILDING - INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

In times of growing environmental awareness and rising energy costs, it is absolutely essential to pay close attention to sustainability criteria when buying a home. 

CORPUS SIREO Real Estate adheres to sustainability criteria both applicable by law and that it sets itself in all its real estate projects. Sustainable building protects the environment, cuts costs and represents an investment in the future.
The company complies with criteria laid down by the Development Loan Corporation (KfW) and the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV), with the energy efficiency ratings of the construction projects displayed on the respective energy certificates. Sustainable use of resources such as wood, but also criteria such as accessibility and effective sound insulation are important considerations when it comes to ensuring sustainable and flexible building use. Sustainably built properties are a capital investment to secure many long years of good living.

Energy Performance Certificate

Good for the Environment and Good for Your Wallet


With a view to rising energy costs and growing environmental awareness, the energy efficiency of properties counts among the key criteria when choosing a home of your own. Germany's energy performance certificate enhances the clarity and transparency of that choice. It provides a detailed overview of a given building's thermal insulation. The information provided has been compiled by professionals and permits a comparison with similar buildings while also providing parameters for a rough estimate of future energy costs.

The German Energy Agency (dena) maintains a database with qualified personnel nationwide who are licensed to issue an energy performance certificate.
Acquiring Property as a Sustainable Private Investment

Acquiring Property as a Sustainable Private Investment


Home, sweet home – everyone dreams of a place of their own. Moreover, many see the acquisition of property as a good way to provide for old age, be it as a home of their own or as a secure private investment. Then again: People and their living circumstances change, and so do the expectations in a property. The easier it is to adjust a building to changing personal requirements in efficient, flexible and affordable ways (e.g. to expand the space for children, to accommodate a disabled person, or to convert a single- into a multi-family home), the higher the value retention of that building.

High-level value retention is a decisive argument particularly for investors. As the future owner, the investor can rest assured that such a property may be upgraded to meet future requirements – be it for owner occupation or for resale. This translates not only into cost and resource savings, but also into stable property value.

The KfW 70 Standard and the Energy Saving Ordinance Define Sustainability in Real Estate


The German KfW 70 standard defines a type of construction that requires 30% less energy than comparable properties. Energy conservation is not just good for the environment but good for your wallet, too. Here is another incentive for home-owners: Programs for energy-efficient building and refurbishing are financially sponsored by the government-owned KfW Förderbank.

The German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV), which entered into force in 2007, governs the building engineering requirements for the efficient operating energy consumption of buildings and development projects. The Ordinance was revised in 2009 to accommodate a target of lowering energy, heating, and hot water needs by around 30%.

We at CORPUS SIREO build our houses according to these standards and thereby secure the long-term value of your property.
Using Wood and Feeling Good

Sustainable Use of the Resource Timber

Using Wood and Feeling Good


For many, the use of wood is not just an architectural highlight, but also conducive to a pleasant interior ambience. Then again: It is of the essence for an intact ecosystem to safeguard the timber resources of Nordic as well as of tropical and sub-tropical forests. We live up to this requirement by using timber and wood-based materials from sustainably managed forests. As proof that only wood from a regulated, sustainably managed forest of origin was used we accept the certificate of the Forest Stewardship Council (SC) or the label of the Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
Living without Limitations

Handicap Accessibility

Living without Limitations


Handicap-accessibility means being able to move about at home without outside assistance and without limitation – a sine-qua-non criterion for property owners. The resultant degree of mobility makes it easy for residents to have a social life of their own. The probability of becoming less agile tends to increase in proportion to advancing age.

The preservation of unhampered movement is facilitated by properties with unrestricted access, sufficient circulation and manoeuvring space, and the absence of thresholds in the living area. In the bathrooms of today, shower stalls flush with the floor level have become standard in order to make everyday care as convenient as possible.
Your Property as a Peaceful Sanctuary – even in an Urban Setting

Sound Insulation

Your Property as a Peaceful Sanctuary – even in an Urban Setting


A home is to supposed to provide more than just shelter. It should safeguard the privacy of its residents.

This means providing options for spending time on your own, for enjoying the intimate seclusion and refuge of your four walls, and living just the way you want to. Sound insulation is of key importance to meet these requirements. The proper insulating material and triple-glazing will keep outside interference and nuisances to a minimum.
