Welcome to the first edition of our e-magazine GO BEYOND! Meet the incredible people, see the pioneering buildings and discover the innovations that are making architecture more sustainable and disrupting traditional construction - in a good way.
In a world that is having to come to terms with its climate reality urgently WICONA, as part of Hydro Building Systems, has already reduced the carbon footprint of its aluminium façade systems, helped architects reduce their projects’ carbon footprint and is looking forward at methods of building facades differently. Working with the environment in mind whilst meeting the megatrends, and the associated building requirements, of the future, WICONA builds beyond tomorrow.
Find out about our market-leading goal to reach product circularity. Right now, our aluminium systems are made using 75% recycled, post consumer scrap and are 95% recyclable. Our goal is to reach 80% recycled content and systems that are 100% recyclable.
Together we go beyond by running every part of our business as sustainably as possible.
Be inspired by the buildings where Hydro CIRCAL has been specified like the forward-thinking architecture of the Senckenberg Tower or BREEAM Excellent rated Økern Portal in Oslo.
Learn more about the partnerships we’re forging with market disruptors like Michel Baars, the managing director of urban mining company New Horizons. And how WICONA is working with non-profit organisation, We-Building - an international group of architects helping to design and deliver schools, sustainably, to areas where children need it the most.
