Sustainability addressed to the needs of our customers
In 2013, the Marc O’Polo Flagship Store in Berlin was the first tenant to receive the golden medal from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen). At the time, this was a pilot project and we were a significant partner for designing the plan of action. Sustainability was also an important factor in the planning and construction of the offices for followfish, a food brand, in Freidrichshafen. The entire office building is DGNB certified. Consequently, the interior should also fulfil the same criteria.
We are convinced that ecology, resources and profitability are only secondary factors when it comes to sustainability. People are the primary focus of any consideration – and people are the real key. If you ensure that employees and customers feel good, all the other issues will take care of themselves.
Our self-programmable app allows us to assess our projects according to DGNB criteria at an early stage of development. The criteria for this assessment are buildings, technology, material and socio-cultural factors. We integrate and guide our customers in the process from the very beginning. And we have noticed: approaching the topic of sustainability usually starts by addressing the needs of the people involved. That’s why Knoblauch defines sustainability as:
100 % PEOPLE.
