According to data released by Reynars, one out of every five new buildings in Romania contain premium aluminium joinery.
Typically chosen due to their higher quality and long shelf life, aluminium doors and windows are being utilized on more and more residential projects in the southeastern European state. In addition, utilization in the construction of office buildings is a mainstay of the aluminium joinery sector, as more funding is generally allocated for such projects.
“The projects carried out by Reynaers in 2016 confirm the maturity of client behavior, who are much more attentive to details and concerned with the quality of solutions they choose for their buildings,” explained country manager Reynaers Romania Daniel Popa.
Aluminium joinery has made a significant contribution to meeting the goals in the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Directive. The directive, published in 2012 and setting 2020 as a date for its goals to be met, directs the governments of the EU to purchase energy efficient building materials for public buildings, renovate a certain percentage of existing buildings with an eye towards energy efficiency, and set as a goal to achieve 1.5% energy savings per annum by improving energy efficiency. Aluminium doors and windows help substantially in this goal, says the company, because up to forty percent of the heat lost from within a building is due to poor joinery.
Reynaers cites as examples the residential complex Amber Gardens, which is Romania’s first high-end green apartment complex, and Valley 21, a mountain resort that is the first in the country to be built with energy efficiency in mind.
“Alongside this projects, this year we ended deliveries for Oregon Park for a surface of over 15,000 square meters, for the residential project Mircea Voda 39, located in the center of Bucharest and contributed to the setting up of the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca,” said Popa.
