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.

2DUBY Považská – a smart apartment building with even more affordable housing.

Nearly every part of our lives is now affected by advanced technologies. Housing is no exception. If you are looking for a new home and at the same time you long for an environmentally friendly lifestyle, welcome to v 2DUBOCH Považská a modern apartment complex with many innovative solutions. From photovoltaic panels to charging stations for electric cars and green roofs with community gardens – the development has everything necessary for a comfortable and environmentally sustainable home. Let’s take a look together at how 2DUBY Považská is a truly revolutionary choice for your future home!

2DUBY Považská not only cares about the environment, but also about your wallet.

We are aware of the importance of sustainability and efficient energy management. That is why our apartment buildings feature solutions that reduce energy consumption and protect nature.

One way to achieve environmental friendliness is to install photovoltaic panels on the roofs of apartment buildings. These solar panels capture sunlight and convert it into electricity. Thanks to them, you can get part or even the total volume of electricity that your home needs from the sun! This is not only environmentally friendly but also financially beneficial because it cuts the cost of your monthly electricity bills.

Photovoltaic panels on the roofs of apartment buildings

Photovoltaic panels are used to convert energy from the sun to electricity. This process is an absolutely green solution with zero CO2 emissions, which contributes to the protection of the environment. In addition, the panels allow us to save on electricity costs.

In the case of 2DUBY Považská, the photovoltaic devices will be mounted on the roof of the house and will serve for shared use of electricity. But that is not all.

Charging station for electric vehicles

In this day and age, there is more and more interest in green and sustainable transport. Electric cars are becoming a popular option for many people who want to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the environment. Therefore, it is no surprise that a charging station for electric vehicles has become an essential part of a modern apartment building.

2DUBY Považská leads the way in this direction by providing its residents with the opportunity to recharge their electric cars right next to their home. This solution not only allows for convenient charging of the vehicle, but also encourages a change of mindset and active participation in the protection of the environment.

The 2DUBY Považská charging station was designed with the latest technologies and safety standards in mind. It is a combination of functionality and aesthetics – a simple design fits into the surroundings of the building, adding style to the general atmosphere.

Green roofs with community gardens and relaxation areas

The unique green roofs are the highlight of sustainable housing in the 2DUBY Považská project. These roofs are not only aesthetically pleasing but also have many practical uses. In addition to helping to protect the environment by capturing rainwater and reducing ambient temperatures, they also provide space for community gardens and relaxation areas.

On these roofs you will find cultivated plants, flowers and herbs. You can sit on benches or relax on lawns. An ideal place for a picnic with family or friends.

The community aspect is an important part of the 2DUBY Považská project. All residents can work together to maintain these spaces and ensure their beautiful appearance throughout the year.

Living in 2DUBY is even more accessible thanks to 1% interest

2DUBY not only brings smart, nature-friendly solutions, but also affordable living in spacious, sunny apartments.

A park that will be a garden not just for the Rozkvet neighbourhood

The plan calls for a large park with attractions for all generations to grow on a neglected site used for illegal dumping. This plan is being implemented by the City of Považská Bystrica with Constario DEVELOPMENT, which, in addition to the park, is also building new housing in the 2DUBY Považská project with 117 spacious apartments, including 5 duplexes with generous floor space.

2DUBY Považská and MUNICIPAL PARK Považská, implemented by Constario DEVELOPMENT, will become projects that will make a big difference to the site and enhance the potential and standard of living in the Rozkvet housing estate.

“It is in our interest to build both projects comprehensively. We want it to be a landmark that can be seen from the highway. The projects will provide much-needed high-quality public space that will serve the already existing housing development and make its current devastation a thing of the past,” explained investor Ján Urík – Managing Director of Constario DEVELOPMENT.

The idea of building a new park for the Rozkvet was born in mid-2021. The first step was to draw up project documentation began and obtain the necessary opinions for excavation permits and subsequent building permits needed to start construction of the park.

After signing a Memorandum of Cooperation, we began removing wind-dispersed trees and trees marked for felling. In addition to the above, there were also diseased trees in the area. “This is why it was important to cut down some of the wind dispersed trees. The sick were removed, the healthy ones were preserved so that they could continue to grow,” added Martina Lalíková.

“The Považská MUNICIPAL PARK project will bring significant intervention to the site, as well as increase the potential and standard of living in the Rozkvet housing estate. Therefore, it requires a patient and sensitive approach. It is a very long-term process that requires a lot of time, forbearance and tolerance,” said Ján Urík, the company’s managing director, who grew up in Rozkvet himself. Although the company faced resistance and, not least, public distrust during this period, it obtained the building permits for the park, which was thus a step closer to reality. “We are a company that stands by its goals and turns its vision into reality even if it takes a long time. We believe that when we start implementing the park, the inhabitants of Rozkvet will begin to see us in a new light. We are aware that actions are worth more than a thousand words and promises,” adds Ján Urík.

Comprehensive revitalisation of the site

Považská MUNICIPAL PARK. The project is exceptional in that it will cover an area of almost 23,000 m2. A park that will be a garden not only for the whole of Rozkvet. A park where everyone can relax. There will be a comprehensive revitalisation of the site, new trails, play and sports facilities, a community garden, a water feature, as well as social amenities. We know that the young trees will not be the same as the old ones, but they will mature and provide a harmonious space for the next generation.

New space, chess and lakeside seating

“It is completely natural for us to work on restoring a green area in the Považská MUNICIPAL  PARK project as we know the great importance of urban greenery from our own experience with green roofs on each of our buildings. It matters not just from an aesthetic point of view, but mainly because of climate sustainability and the cooling of the surroundings in a dusty and overheated urban environment,” says Ján Urík.

The park will be revitalized according to a design by Martina Lalíková and will include the laying of paths, planting, landscaping and the installation of furniture in the form of benches, baskets,  but also a children’s playground and other play equipment, elements for seniors, exercise equipment, gazebos, fire pits, a barbecue house, a chess table for tournaments in the park, seating by a natural lake and a park café where you can enjoy a cup of coffee.

The investor started the construction of 2DUBY and the Municipal Park in the fourth quarter of 2022, the completion of the first stage of the 2DUBY project is planned for the second quarter of 2024. The investor began implementation of the Municipal Park at the same time as 2DUBY. The first stage of the park (community garden, fire pits, chess seating, borehole + retention reservoir, which will serve as a reservoir for irrigation water, public lighting, water mains, low-voltage connection, sewage connection and dirt paths) should be completed by the end of 2023. Play, sports and water features, as well as social infrastructure, are included in the second, third and fourth stages of construction of the park, which will also take place alongside the construction of 2DUBY.

“We tried to design the 2DUBY and Municipal Park projects in the style of high-quality modern housing associated with nature, community and relaxation, while exploiting two exceptional features of the location. On the one hand, it has excellent amenities and hassle-free accessibility, on the other hand, it offers a beautiful natural environment. We believe that future residents of 2DUBY will appreciate both of these qualities, which are a sought-after rarity when living in the city,” added Ján Urík as a concluding observation.
