KREIS: Rising prices in construction

The people here live on around 11 million square meters, spread over more than 100,000 apartments. Private landlords and housing companies have to keep their rents moderate in these times of high prices. This is what the IG Bau union demands. It is also necessary to look for alternative ways to create new homes. A conversion of houses requires less building material. Many houses have roofs that can be removed. It’s cheaper than building from scratch.
