How we make building projects greener.
Do you want to tackle your next construction project more sustainably? Are you seeking certification according to one of the rating tools of the WGBC (World Green Building Council)? Schwitzke Project has been an active member of the German Sustainable Building Council, DGNB, since September 2017. Our employees are trained and certified there and receive further training on an ongoing basis. This enables us to realize projects in fulfillment of the LEED international guidelines and advise you accordingly in advance. This is part of our company policy – as is the regular ecological and social auditing of our suppliers.
Before building, we make sure to use ecologically safe products and low-emission construction materials – ranging from solvent-free paints that meet the RAL-ZU 102 standard to textile floor coverings with the GUT quality seal. This also means that we consider as many materials as possible in a holistic way, over their entire life cycle. When we build, we implement systematic waste management, avoiding refuse where possible, and otherwise reducing, separating, and sustainably disposing of it, as well as transparently documenting its disposal. We’ve set a waste recycling target of at least 75% – and rising.
We see ourselves as a part of your ecological footprint and are constantly striving to enhance our performance in this respect. Our vehicle fleet has been completely emission-free since 2023. After all, it’s important to set a high bar.

How we approach cradle-to-cradle projects:
Our expertise extends to creating a sustainable closed-loop system of building materials in the most consistent way possible. Whether for new construction or a building revitalization, a project planned and implemented according to cradle-to-cradle principles calls above all for a systematic approach. This begins with the initial decision and runs through every phase of the project as a common thread. Find out more in the podcast about how we conceive and drive forward cradle-to-cradle projects.
