The Handwerkerhaus Überseestadt in Bremen by CREE


Handwerkerhaus Überseestadt

A project that showcases the immense carbon-saving potential of the CREE system:

The Handwerkerhaus in Bremen’s Überseestadt district was erected in a record 10 days—4 days faster than planned. In addition to the impressive construction speed, this project showcases the outstanding improvements in sustainability offered by the CREE system: 80% fewer CO2 emissions per m² and 50% less total building weight than would have resulted from using conventional construction methods.
