Öko-Zentrum NRW

About us

The Öko-Zentrum NRW (translatable as Eco-Center North Rhine-Westphalia) is one of Germany's top addresses for sustainable building. We offer a highly qualified team with over 20 years of experience.

Our services are determined by three main areas:


We plan renovation and refurbishment measures and new buildings (residential and non-residential). We further support clients and architects with engineering services. These include thermal insulation certificates, thermal bridge calculations, thermal simulations, investigations into moisture protection and sound insulation certificates.


As a specialist institute, we advise private and public clients from all over Germany in on demand planning, targets for building quality, energy concepts/energy optimisation, cost-effectiveness, selection of building materials and building certification.


Building experts qualify themselves with our courses as "building energy consultants", "expert planners for energy efficiency and passive houses", "audited planners for building biology" or as "specialists for the protection from mould and moisture". We conduct seminars and in-house training courses on sustainable building and the Assessment System for Sustainable Building (BNB).
