Aim

The aim of the FLOW is to be the centre of attraction for a global super cluster of technological innovations for climate protection in sense of implementing the United Nations’ sustainability goals and the circular economy. The centre will be a hot spot for innovators, creatives, investors and implementers and is expected to attract the best start-ups worldwide and bring them to Meerbusch.

The building is intended to become a symbol of structural change and to stand for the transformation into a sustainable, post-fossil society and have a positive ecological footprint.

Triple Zero Approach

The construction and operation of the building is based on a triple zero approach:

  • Firstly, the building only requires the energy that it generates itself from sustainable sources. (zero energy). 
  • Secondly, the building produces no harmful emissions (zero emission). 
  • Thirdly, all building components are completely recyclable into technical or biological cycles (zero waste). 

The building will be CO2 positive and implement a sponge concept for water retention and recycling. The building has water areas in the courtyard and outdoor spaces as well as green spaces to promote biodiversity. 

Mobility

A mobility concept for a dedicated mobility service is being developed for the GEC House. The aim is to get and depart to the GEC  car-free and CO2 neutral.
The mobility concept is intended to provide the basis for deviating from the usual parking key and to minimise car traffic to the GEC.
