The answers to the challenges of sustainable building

"We live well, but not on the costs of future generations."

With the development and realization of the V_2020 project, we would like to present how the company KAGER HISA sees sustainable living.

The constant development of the company KAGER HISA has laid the foundation for the final development of the V_2020 project, which will present the company’s vision for the next decade and beyond.
The key starting points for the development are coming from all three spheres of sustainability – economy, ecology, and society.

Where we need to maintain and develop our own identity, which is reflected in:

– Emphasizing the visible timber that serves as the starting point for interior design;
– Maintaining or even increasing the proportion of the glass surfaces;
– Maintaining the role of the individual master in the making of each facility – the importance of manual labour work remains of prime importance;
– A clear direction of wooden construction with its properties.

Three spheres of sustainable development

Sustainable development comprises three areas. Environmental, social and economic. In any case, progress should be made in any given area. The overlap between any of them has some additional advantages. The true sustainable development can only be achieved by overlapping in all three areas. In other words, the sustainability of the progress made only in a particular field of ecology, society or economy leads to an ultimate failure.

A sustainable approach can be written in several ways. One of them describes a sustainable approach to meet the current needs in such a way that will not affect future generations.

The answers of KAGER HISA to the challenges of sustainable building

As seen in the previous diagram, there are three main spheres or areas in the development of sustainable building.

1). The environmental area:

The protection of natural resources: we protect the natural resources in such a way that we use only the materials of controlled origin, which are intended for the industry. The modern materials industry allows the highest possible utilization of these as well as the recycling of materials, and thus dramatically contributes to the protection of natural resources.

Increasing the efficiency:

Designing on the most modern equipment and the related optimization at each and every step from design to execution significantly contribute to increasing the effectiveness in the making of the product.
With the V_2020 project, we want to optimize each and every small element and thus influence not only the economic part, but mainly to reduce the initial footprint on the environment.

Environmentally friendly production:

KAGER HISA has already invested in environmentally friendly production. Our production facility is equipped with boiler biomass and photovoltaic panels, which significantly reduce its environmental footprint. With the V_2020 project, we want to make the further steps in the production.

These will be reflected as a reduction of the manufacturing times of individual components of the product.
The aim is to reduce the production time per unit of living space for by least 30 per cent. With this result, we expect to reduce the environmental impacts by 7 to 10 per cent.

2). The economy area:

Reducing the lifetime costs:
Reducing the lifetime costs will be achieved in several ways:

  • By reducing the number of components with high maintenance costs;
  • By increasing the energy efficiency;
  • By increasing the number of passive measures to increase living comfort;
  • With the use of newer materials on exposed parts of the structure and the associated maintenance reduced to the minimum.

Conservation values:

  • By reducing the number of components with high maintenance costs, with the integration of passive measures and components with a long life-service, by using modern materials and by integrating technical solutions, which we have already tested, and by providing lasting solutions for the most exposed parts of the wooden construction.

 

3). The social area:

The satisfaction and comfort of the customers:

KAGER HISA has insisted for decades on their belief that the quality of the facility is not reflected only by numbers in a spreadsheet. The living comfort cannot be reflected only by calculation results, but is much more. We are exploring the possibility of modular construction, which is going to allow the adjustment to the needs of the owner considering his life cycle. Why do we need to change the environment that we like, because we have to adapt our house according to the needs of our age or health?
