Partners

Construction21 was created by a consortium of nine partners to speed up the building market transition towards sustainability. The project was selected within the call for proposals "Intelligent Energy for Europe" in 2010 and thus enjoys strong support from the European Union during its first two years.

Construction21 is also closely linked to Build UP, the European Website dedicated to energy efficiency in buildings. The two Websites will exchange contents and the most outstanding European case studies entered in Constrution21 database will also be visible on Build UP.
