The EU Taxonomy Regulation (EU) 2020/852 is forcing the housing industry to focus intensely on the issue of climate neutrality. The sector clearly has a huge social responsibility – and the question is how can it meet the new, more stringent requirements for new buildings and the renovation of established buildings?

With its many years of experience, Drees & Sommer stands ready to support principals as a consulting partner. We help clients exploit the full potential of climate-neutral projects and ensure that new and existing construction projects are future-proof. To allow projects to be planned and executed as cost-efficiently as possible, our experts also advise on the many funding initiatives provided by the federal and state governments.

“Housing faces many challenges in the future. It is essential to think in concepts and harness the synergies between the fields of housing and working, leisure, mobility and energy efficiency to ensure the socially oriented, sustainable and healthy development of our living environment. The focus must be on the users: That is the only way to create demand-driven offerings that meet future needs.”

Projects in residential construction - living space that pays off


The acute need for new, affordable housing poses great challenges for the construction industry. Experienced project managers are in demand who can advise on sustainable development concepts at an early stage. Here, Drees & Sommer experts address the individual needs of the client and ask, for example, about flat sizes and efficient floor plans. The film shows this using the example of Berlin's Möckernkiez.

Housing projects - challenges for property developers


A property development project is never an off-the-peg construction project, but always a complex undertaking - not least because, in addition to the construction itself, it is usually a buyer's project with many clients who all have their own ideas. Drees & Sommer acts as a reliable interface for clients, from optimization of floor plans during planning to review of contracts before sales start. Always with the purchaser in focus.
