Madaster – a materials registry
Madaster is an online registry for materials and products used in construction. The documentation, registration and archiving of the materials used in buildings and construction projects promotes intelligent designs, avoids waste and makes it easier for them to be broken down and recycled. The partnership with Madaster is consistent with Swiss Prime Site’s sustainability goals and measures. One excellent example of an innovative circular project as part of a total renovation is the new site for Google in Zurich (Müllerstrasse 16/20). Construction work started in July 2021 and aims to transform the 24 000 m² building into an ultra-contemporary space with the highest sustainability standards. After completion at the end of 2023, the building will be certified in accordance with SNBS and Minergie standards.
