How Skyreach Relocations is practising sustainable building
The pre-fabricated pieces, glide in silently, the new student apartments on Universitätsstraße. A complete apartment every 30 minutes: 20 m 2, ready to move in furnished with kitchen and bathroom. With an ingenious plug-in system, the modules are only connected to one another via pins. Due to the high degree of prefabrication, the duration of the construction site is reduced by up to 50%. There is also the added increase in speed since multiple pieces can be assembled at the same time. For example, while the underground car park was being concreted and the access towers were erected on the construction site, the modules were being manufactured in the factory. Shell construction and finishing take place at the same time – just in different places. The walls and intermediate ceiling are designed as a drywall construction, the bathrooms are prefabricated wet cells. The same applies to the kitchen units already set up in the factory.
In Germany, this circular concept is still largely unknown. The Bochum Community Campus is unique in its dimensions but by no means a prototype. The new living concept for students is just as innovative as the construction. The new house wants to be more than a conventional student residence. Like a vertical city within a city, the community campus includes a fitness studio, cafeteria, lounge, launderette, photocopying and printing service, as well as study rooms for working together. A concierge also works as a community manager to ensure good coexistence on campus. And the students have 500 in-house bicycles at their disposal for the short journey to the university.
A CIRCULAR, SUSTAINABLE WORLD
That is our sustainable ambition. Our sustainable accommodations represent decades’ worth of experience and expertise. Sustainability is incredibly important to us because the ideal living environment should be circular and clean.
