5 examples of sustainably profitable projects
8 January 2020
Geoplast Sustainable Profitability includes 6 points that explain how sustainability and profitability work together. Sustainable solutions can improve project profitability in the long run, both for builders and for owners.
Here are some examples of how our projects support Sustainable Profitability:
Marmara Tower in Istanbul
For builders: Lightweight slabs constructed with New Nautilus increased profitability during the construction phase of the Marmara Tower project, reducing the use of concrete and construction equipment costs.
For owners: Less structural elements (columns and supporting walls) allowed flexible floor plans, which are easier to adapt and to resell.
Le Nuage in Montpellier
For builders: Our Skydome is plastic formwork used for the construction of 4,500 m² of bi-directional slabs, which decreased costs because of the reduced use of concrete and reusable formwork.
For owners: Long-span slabs enabled open floor plans and multi-use of the building, which results in higher resale price compared to the buildings with a single function.
Kalasatama Redi Towers, Helsinki
For builders: Our Geotub is used for the construction of rounded columns of an underground car park, 30 meters below the road surface, which required lean construction, including high efficiency at the construction-site and reduced use of machinery.
Wynberg Girls High School in Cape Town
For owners: Our Drainroof is used for the green roof of the classrooms, as a long-term profitable solution for water management at the site, protecting the roof construction and accumulating and retaining the rainwater.
Craig House in Edinburgh
For builders: Stormwater attenuation tank is constructed with our New Elevetor Tank, as it allows reduced usage of concrete and installation without heavy-lifting machines.
For owners: Profitability is improved in the long run, by flood prevention and resilience, which are both very important for the historical site with limited space and high maintenance costs.
