At the end of 2021, the cost of building new apartments in Germany was higher than at any time since 1970. In times of delivery bottlenecks, staff shortages and volatile global developments, the high demand drives up the prices for preliminary work and materials, with increases of 15 to 20 percent in some cases. As a result, project developments continue to become more expensive, whilst calculations within budgets and deadlines are becoming increasingly difficult. How can builders cope with the rising costs and balance innovative approaches to help with the sustainable implementation of construction projects?

We discuss her vision and creative, sustainable solutions in project development with Ursula Seeba-Hannan, head of LenzWerk Holding GmbH. The Berlin group of companies offers various trades such as concept, manufacture, construction and technology from a single source and stands for holistic, economical living design and innovative concepts.

Other topics:

  • Complex causes of the cost increase
  • Assessment of the further development of construction costs
  • Innovative approaches to project development
  • Modular construction as a cornerstone for the future
  • Economical home design
