Photovoltaics and the green revolution – the path to sustainability

Constario GROUP is aware of the importance of sustainability and strives to contribute to environmental protection and building a better, more sustainable world. That’s why we dared to go beyond the usual use of green energy and discover the energy independence that can change our world and move it forward. We see green energy as the driving force of progress and development.

Constario GROUP enters a new era with the ambitious and pilot project TRNKY, which combined modern photovoltaic technologies with a commitment to the green revolution. This initiative not only changes the energy perspective, but can also become an example for entire regions that desire sustainable and ecological development.

Photovoltaics in practice

“Photovoltaic panels installed as part of the TRNKY project are, together with energy management and distribution technology, a key step towards sustainable energy. These technologies use solar radiation to produce electricity, reducing dependence on traditional energy sources. With this innovation comes a number of advantages that promise us a cleaner and more ecological future”, says Ján Urík, Chairman of the Board of Constario GROUP.

One of the most obvious benefits of photovoltaics is its low ecological footprint. Compared to fossil fuels, photovoltaic panels produce electricity without the emission of greenhouse gases and other harmful substances. In addition, photovoltaics consume less water compared to traditional energy methods, which is especially important at a time when the world is facing water deficit problems.

A self-sufficient island system

An interesting aspect of the TRNKY project is its self-sufficient photovoltaic island system of operation, the advantages of which are:
1. Independence from the traditional electricity grid: The photovoltaic island system enables the production of electricity even in areas where grid electricity is not available. This is very useful for remote cabins, mountain huts, caravans and other places off the grid.
2. Sustainability and ecology: Solar energy is a renewable energy source and photovoltaic island systems do not produce any greenhouse gas emissions. In this way, you can contribute to the protection of the environment and reduce your carbon footprint.
3. Lower long-term operating costs: After installing a photovoltaic island system, the energy source is free and does not require regular purchases of fuel or payment of electricity bills. In this way, you can significantly reduce long-term operating costs.

Extensive green roofs

Green roofs are not only aesthetic elements, but also have concrete ecological advantages. Thanks to plants and vegetation on roofs, the insulation value of buildings increases, which reduces energy consumption for air conditioning and heating. In addition, the green roof absorbs rainwater and helps reduce the burden on the city’s sewer system.

In the case of the TRNKY project, extensive green roofs are not just a “crown” on buildings, but an active element in sustainable energy and water management.

Retention areas and rainwater drainage

Retention surfaces serve to retain rainwater, which minimizes surface runoff and improves water quality. This approach has a dual benefit: it prevents flooding and at the same time increases the availability of water for plants.
In the TRNKY project, retention areas become an important element of the environmental strategy, which tries to minimize the negative impact of the urban environment on water resources.

More about the project

For the TRNKY project, we were inspired by modern trends both visually and technically, with an emphasis on quality, practicality, green strategy, sustainability and especially green energy.

Family houses are ideal for those looking for standard or above-standard space, excellent accessibility (7 km from the city center) and a prospective location with excellent civic amenities. The icing on the cake is the high level of privacy and the very peaceful, safe and quiet neighborhood and newly established residential area.

Constario GROUP will transform the dilapidated premises of the former Schulz brickworks into modern housing

The project in Sučany will bring 98 apartments, a reception, a common room, 157 parking spaces and a private kindergarten. Construction will begin immediately after obtaining a valid building permit.

The apartment buildings in the Schulz dvor project will be arranged in such a way as to create a semi-private square with park greenery, original trees, a children’s playground, a seating area and a workout zone.

Beginning of preparatory and demolition works

Preparatory and demolition work is currently underway on the project based on valid permits:
• felling permit,
• demolition permit for renovation of existing buildings,
• zoning decision for the construction of apartment buildings.

Schulz brick complex

In 1878, Ľudovít Schulz founded a brickyard in Sučany. It produced raw, fire-resistant and ribbed bricks, tiles and drainage pipes. 30-80 workers worked in the brickyard, it burned down in 1948. Since that time, the premises of Schulz’s brickyards have fallen into disrepair. The annual production of the brickyard was approximately five hundred thousand pieces of various goods. Schulz’s brickyard in Sučany was an important local supplier of building materials and contributed to the development of regional infrastructure and construction projects.

Schulz´s courtyard: revitalization with respect to history and the environment

The Schulz´s courtyard project is not only a reconstruction of the historical area, but also an opportunity to fulfill the future needs of the residents of the village. When renovating the complex, Constario GROUP undertook to minimize the ecological footprint and use waste recycling to achieve these goals. The waste generated during the preparatory and demolition work will be sorted and recycled so that it can be reused.

All metals (copper, aluminum, steel structures), glass, plastics, glass wool, technological equipment, cable distribution and similar materials will be recycled. Concrete and tiles will be crushed and used as a base layer for reinforced surfaces.

Recycling is the way to reduce the carbon footprint.

Innovative solutions in renewable construction

Constario GROUP is trying to push the boundaries in the field of renewable construction. The use of recycled materials is not only about reducing costs, but also about creating innovative and aesthetically appealing solutions. Schulz’s yard, inspired by the industrial era with its historical heritage, thus becomes an example of how history can be combined with a modern approach to sustainability.

Because without knowing the past, there is no better future.
