More about HCC
Sustainable development contains three equally important aspects: ecology, social issues and economy. For project development, this means that we are already involved in promoting sustainable sites in the selection of properties. Flexible layouts, a good mixture of users, a high aesthetic standard and low life cycle costs are additional criteria. We recommend planning and realising all buildings according to recognised or international sustainability Labels.
And we manage these processes competently from the planning stage to completion of the project until receipt of the respective certification. We emphasise tried-and-tested constructions made of environmentally compatible materials and – when possible and reasonable – using local resources. We specify ecologically compatible materials in invitations to tender. And we pay attention to perfect, professional work in the realisation. Because buildings certified as sustainable guarantee their value. Now and in the future.
We further our goal of acting sustainably and being an environmentally and socially aware company by supporting charitable activities. Every year, as part of a Christmas donations campaign, Steiner AG employees choose a socially useful project that they want to assist by making a voluntary donation. Steiner then doubles the amount raised. We were thus able to donate significant sums to the “123 Burkina” charity in 2016 and to “Stiftung Theodora” in 2017.
After Hindustan Construction Company Ltd. (HCC) acquired a majority interest in Steiner in 2010, Steiner Group continues with the same high degree of reliability and competence that Steiner has always offered as a partner in addressing the full spectrum of real estate development and total contractor services.
