OWA Erfolge

Everyone talks about sustainability – doing something about it is better. The use of OWA ceiling systems in sustainable building projects around the world confirms the effectiveness of our environmental product offensive. Hard facts and figures prove the success of our environmental measures in the plant. Last but not least, our renaturation project in the plant, completed in 2011, proved just how much fun active environmental protection can be. Because if you give nature a real chance, it will reward you handsomely in terms of quality of life.

Ceiling systems for "green" office building in São Paulo

The Eldorado Business Tower is the first building of its type in Brazil to be awarded Platinum certification, the highest level according to LEED®. OWA won the competition for ceiling systems due to the fact that OWA mineral tiles are made from certified, biosoluble mineral wool, free of asbestos and solvents, and their low emissions mean that they are classified as safe (awarded the Blue Angel). 43,000 sq m of office space were equipped with OWAcoustic® ceiling tiles. A concealed system was selected for the main entrance and lift areas, covering 4,000 m2.

Environmental project at the Amorbach plant

The "Billbach" project, the realignment of the stream that runs through our company site, took two years. The measure was intended to improve flood protection and to create space for the extension of the factory. One deliberate side effect was the renaturation of the watercourse and of its bank areas. The scheme, which cost several million to carry out has proven its worth. The initial measures passed their first test in a flood in 2011. A wide variety of new life has returned to the Billbach since its relocation and renaturation, including crayfish and rare kingfishers. Employees and neighbours of the plant are equally delighted about a newly acquired relaxation zone.
