The eco-friendly

Eco-friendly building?

Not in the traditional way...

Did you know that the construction sector is responsible for around 6% of the worlds’ CO2 emissions?

The biggest culprit is cement (concrete). For every 1000kg of cement, around 822kg of CO2 is produced. In the last 90 years this has accounted to a whopping 40 billion tons of CO2 (Read more about this here).

This is sad to watch, as there are a lot of sustainable and Eco-friendly options to build greener homes.

Sustainability via wooden houses

Wood is a high quality building material, provided by nature, perfect for eco-friendly houses.

When cultivating this material, a lot less CO2 is expelled into the environment than with traditional building materials. Thanks to the natural prevalence of wood, there is no need for heavy polluting industrial processes.

This, together with good forest preservation (certified and controlled by the German government) makes for a very good and eco-friendly solution for every eco-minded person.

What is good forest preservation? (the suppliers of) Quackels always make sure that no more wood is harvested than wood that can be grown. Therefore, there is never any deforestation happening. 

Suppliers who have the same focus

Certified eco-friendly

Our materials are sourced from suppliers which have been picked very carefully. This means that our suppliers also focus on ecology when sourcing and fabricating their products. Some of their certification is: durable forestry, good energymanagement,… 

For the environment and for your wallet!

After the build of your home, the invoices (for you and for nature) keep on coming. Classical building materials are a lot less isolating than wood.

A simple comparison can be made via Wood is up to 6 times more isolating than bricks, up to 13 times more isolating than concrete and up to even 384 times more isolating than steel.

Combine this with the outstanding isolation and airtightness (read more about it here). of a Quackels home and Quackels becomes an obvious choice.

Minimizing waste and excesses

Duurzaam bouwen houdt ook in dat er rekening wordt gehouden met afval en overschotten. 

Dankzij ons uniek bouwsysteem en het gebruik van industriële processen kan Quackels als geen ander bouwbedrijf zorgen voor minimalisatie van afval en overschotten.

Dankzij ons industrieel systeem worden alle verschillende delen van onze woning op maat gemaakt. Dit biedt twee grote voordelen. Onevenaarbare accuraatheid en geen overtollig afval. Dat is echt duurzaam bouwen.

Waterusage in our production

One of the latest investments we made, is an investment in the reduction of waterusage in our production. Thanks to our new installation, we estimate that our waterusage is reduced up to 90% in some of our proceses 

Rainwaterusage in your home

Every home built bij Quackels has a large rainwaterstorage (long before the legal requirements of late). 

This water is useable for different things like flushing the toilet, watering the garden, washing the car, etc. This way we can keep ecology and economy alive while living in our houses.
