Nette Building

Am Wohnpark Nette 6

Creating Sustainable
Living for Everyone

The building at "Am Wohnpark Nette 6" is the first finalized project of GROPYUS. Our buildings are rooted in timber from sustainable forestry. With every building, we create the most exciting living experience.
We design sustainable buildings as holistic and continuously evolving products that are focused on the needs of our tenants - building for people and conserving our planet's resources.

Why do GROPYUS
buildings stand out?

Industrialized production

We make use of industrial production technology to greatly reduce the costs of residential buildings in timber-hybrid construction. We cover the entire value chain of the real estate industry: from development, planning, component production and construction through to letting and operating buildings.

Digital and standardized

The high level of digitization and standardization make our products scalable and enable us to realize construction projects quickly. The elements are manufactured in our factories and assembled on-site. They are prefabricated, replicable, combinable, interchangeable, constantly optimized and can be separated and recycled at the end of their life cycle.

Sustainability

Our sustainable buildings are standard-compliant (ESG a. 8 & 9/KFW/BEG 40 funding eligible). They are sourced with 100% PEFC- and/or FSC-certified materials. The use of renewable energies and intelligent energy management make "Am Wohnpark Nette 6" energy positive in operation, thus generating more energy than needed in its life cycle.

Weißenthurm

The location

Weissenthurm is a historic town near Koblenz in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate and is located directly on the Rhine River. Its proximity to Neuwied, Andernach and Koblenz makes the town a popular place to live for young families.

Resources

Focus on sustainability

GROPYUS buildings and processes aim to create more resources than they consume during their life cycle. Circular economy principles, resource-efficient product design and automated production reduce our ecological footprint and will regenerate the resources over their life cycle. Our buildings are rooted in timber from sustainable forestry. Responsible sourcing serves as a prerequisite for implementation.

Climate

Focus on sustainability

"Am Wohnpark Nette 6" has only 5% of the Global Warming Potential of a reference building. It also stands out in Life Cycle Carbon with 22% less embodied carbon compared to DGNB reference buildings. One ton of CO₂ is sequestered per 1 m³ timber. The photovoltaic system integrated into the facade ensures that the building is energy positive over its life cycle.

Climate - Focus on sustainability

Accessibility

Focus on sustainability

We create buildings for people of different ages, ethnicities, gender, income or lifestyle. We meet those requirements with our comprehensive living space concept. We develop our buildings according to the principles of "universal design". This includes accessibility and adaptability to different preferences and life stages.

Health

Focus on sustainability

We focus on 360° user health and comfort. To promote well-being and achieve a pleasant living climate and ambiance we use natural and high-quality materials. Visible wood in the interior design, optimal daylight and high acoustic and thermal comfort contribute to a cozy home. All apartments in the building at "Am Wohnpark Nette 6" are equipped with a bathroom and a fitted kitchen.

Health - Focus on sustainability

Did you know that 99% of all buildings cannot be assessed for life cycle carbon due to a lack of data?

We are part of creating the 1% of homes that can provide sufficient data for an accurate whole life cycle assessment. Our buildings are created as holistic products and are fully end-to-end digitally integrated. This enables us to assess the emissions over the complete life cycle of a building, from production until its end-of-life stage, with a strong focus on global warming potential.

The environmental impact of each material used is calculated to get a reliable picture of the whole life cycle. The building components are combinable, interchangeable and can be separated and recycled at the end of their life cycle. Increasing material efficiency is key to reaching the 1.5° C goal set by the Paris agreement.

Why build with GROPYUS?

GROPYUS creates sustainable, affordable and high-quality buildings. Our digital integrated end-to-end process starts with the initial building design and leads all the way to building operation. This enables full trackability and traceability of our product. Our complete digital integration gives asset holders a better overview over the timeline of the project, less disruption, faster delivery, more efficiency and most importantly cost certainty.

Our automated factories give us the ability to deliver a level of precision unavailable in traditional construction. The on-site assembly requires less skilled labor which reduces the risk of errors to a minimum. Bad weather won’t hold up our production or add unforeseen costs, further minimizing the risks associated with traditional sites.
