Energy hill


Cordeel never stops innovating. We are committed to decarbonization and circular construction, work on innovations to reduce energy consumption and develop new concepts for bio-based materials. Our C-innovation unit accelerates developments in these areas across all Cordeel Group companies.

The construction sector is responsible for as much as 40% of greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2, 50% of energy consumption, 1/3 of water consumption and 50% of material flows.  Hallucinatory figures in which we as a construction group also bear a great responsibility. With persistent efforts in innovation, Cordeel Group wants to offer solutions for the major challenges in the construction sector and the constantly changing energy landscape.

We want to design and build the buildings of the future.
In this process, both the building and the construction process need to meet the following criteria:

  • CO2 neutral
  • sustainable and circular
  • resilient and adaptable to changing climate conditions

In terms of the design, construction and operation of the energy infrastructure we want to meet the following criteria:

  • CO2 neutral
  • sustainable
  • flexible yet robust
  • as a service



Decarbonisation of buildings

Considering the growing demand for energy in buildings and the expansion of the building sector, it is crucial to reduce its carbon footprint. This can be achieved through the implementation of energy-efficient technologies, the use of low-carbon building materials in which green concrete will be an important factor, and the adoption of renewable energy sources. At Cordeel, we are aware of the challenge and see the many opportunities and devolved several solutions to tackle the problem.

Bio-based materials

Bio-based materials will play an increasingly important role in our stride to reduce the embodied carbon of our buildings and solutions. Through our sister company C-fire, we offer innovative and eco-friendly fire fighting solutions and systems. And C-biotech remediates historical contaminated soils (e.g. PFOS, heavy metals) in an ecological and natural way and in turn uses this industrial hemp as a biorefinery to produce biomass that can be used in isolation materials, hempwood, cladding as well as in engineered solutions.  Bio-based materials offer a plethora of advantages:

  • Helps to reduce the embodied carbon of buildings
  • These materials can actually sequester carbon
  • Tends to be a healthier choice than the alternatives currently used
  • Increased recyclability (and sometimes biodegradability) compared to fossil alternatives
  • Lower pollution risk

It is our ambition to structurally increase bio-based materials in our projects.

Embracing the digital era, we are fully engaged in a transformative journey, exploring the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to further accelerate our processes and enhance overall efficiency. BIM (Building Information Model) is an essential component of the digital transformation we (and our sector) are going through. The main objective of a BIM process is to enhance collaboration by setting up a central platform that serves as a single source of truth/information.
