Wernigerode / Berlin. The concept of the Gebäude- und Wohnungsgesellschaft Wernigerode (GWW) to transform a prefabricated building estate into a modern district was awarded prize money of 100,000 euros by the Federal Ministry of Construction yesterday. Together with the Wernigerode housing association the GWW intends to renovate the almost 30-year old plattenbau buildings in the district in such a way that the energy demand of the total of 2,150 apartments will be reduced by about one third. It is also checked whether photovoltaic systems could be put on the flat roofs.
