This building will be used not only as company headquarters but mainly for the organisation of seminars, trainings and promotion of technologies in the area of energy savings. The building itself will serve as a „teaching tool“ on which visitors can see the technologies used during construction of energy-effective buildings. The house is drawn up according to the philosophy of the company which is focused on energy savings.
