CLE is building a special project in Differdange, in the south-west of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The Aurea Tower, which will be 58 metres high, is a sustainable project built using innovative methods.
The Aurea Tower has 14 floors and is anchored on two basement levels housing car parks. The ground floor will be used for retail space, the first floor for offices, and the upper floors for 138 apartments, including eight duplexes.
How do we make a difference at Aurea?
CLE relies, in particular, on an innovative system for producing the aluminium for the exterior joinery work. This process makes it possible to utilise pre-used, 75% recycled aluminium, and to reduce the carbon footprint of this material by a factor of 8.
Construction consolidation centre
Another example of innovation on this construction site is that CLE is using the first consolidation centre that has ever been set up in Luxembourg. A CCC (construction consolidation centre) is a logistics platform for centralising material supplies, which enables optimised redistribution on the construction site. Average storage time on site is usually up to three months. With the CCC, this has been reduced to eight days. As a result, energy consumption has been halved, as have CO2 emissions.
