NHK - Niederösterreich Haus
Krems - first prize
The Niederösterreich Haus Krems (NHK) sets a new standard in ecological office building: Already during construction more than 1,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions were saved through the use of Eco-Cement. With the building in operation, CO2 emissions will be reduced by 100 tons per year, which is as much as is produced by the heating of 25 single-family homes per year! The NHK, however, offers sustainable solutions not only with regard to construction and building services engineering: Easily reachable by public transportation, the public office building is situated in an as yet little frequented part of downtown Krems, where it may provide new urban impulses.
