Changing the construction world towards a sustainable market where reuse is the norm
JuuNoo makes sustainable building financially interesting
Current construction methods have an immense ecological impact and heaviliy weigh on the budget of an average family. This impact and these costs are increasing even further due to globalisation and the hyperfast society we live in. As a result, buildings and spaces are changing ever more often.
“We want to make sustainable building the norm by just doing it.”
In order to protect both our planet and to cope with the growing population, we will have to reinvent architecture completely. The principles of circular economy are crucial to combine ecological necessity with economic reality. JuuNoo gives you the opportunity to realise this for compartmentalisation of spaces, where growth or adjustments don’t always have to lead to more construction waste and costs.
“I don’t want my kids to ever say to me, Daddy, you knew about it. What did you do about it? ”
“I recently watched, together with my son, to the launch of the Falcon Heavy, the space shutlle of Elon Musk. He was the first to make shuttles that land back on Earth. Now, if someone dares to make a shuttle, they cannot possibly work with anything other than reusable rockets: SpaceX has changed the rules of the game, set the benchmark. I want to do that too. ”
“For seven years I worked as head of R&D at beMatrix, a company that developed a wall system for stand builders that is used everywhere at events and fairs. These walls are built quickly, are reusable and look great. Knowing that 40% of the waste on this planet consists of construction waste, I wondered: why isn’t there a similar system for interior walls?”
“Entrepreneurship is in my genes, so starting something myself is the way to make a difference. I saw the parallels between the stand construction and the interior wall market: cost-efficient and sustainable building is everyone’s goal, but they still tinker with steel profiles and wooden planks that always have to be built up anew and demolished again. We can do better, I thought. Building on the principles and methodology I had learned, I developed my own reusable partition.”
“If I make it financially more interesting to choose a reusable wall, then I am convinced that people will make that choice.”
“You know, if you look at the facts about global warming, you can do two things. Whether you think “that is very bad”, shrug and leave it at that. Or you do something about it. “I don’t want my kids to ever say to me, Daddy, you knew about it. What did you do about it? ” and that I can’t give them an answer. That is why my company is called JuuNoo, after my children, Juul and Noor. It’s a great reminder of why I do it all. ”
