How we create innovations for tomorrow

From climate-neutral bricks to rainwater management: Wienerberger develops innovative products and system solutions for the construction industry of the future.

Uwe Strasser

Climate change, the shortage of skilled workers or resource scarcity: Our response to modern-day challenges is always innovation. With our smart construction and infrastructure solutions we are improving the quality of life of millions of people all over the world. In fact, one third of Wienerberger’s revenues is already generated by new products and services.

From the building envelop to sewer systems

As the technology and innovation leader we develop building materials and services for the future. These include solutions for the entire building envelop, such as the climate-neutral clay block: This saves 5,800 tons of CO2 annually – equivalent to the emissions of around 3,000 cars.

Innovations: Preflex Spider and Raineo®

Wienerberger enhances the speed and efficiency of construction projects with innovative solutions, such as these two examples from our Pipelife subsidiary: Preflex Spider – a prefabricated, customized electrical installation that vastly increases efficiency on building sites and the Raineo® system that helps manage rainwater on sealed surfaces.
