High-rises in Pyongyang – perhaps better insulated soon?
Werner Hässig‘s company Hässig Sustech GmbH advertises with the slogan „Your Specialists for MINERGIE-Standards and Sustainable Building“. And on his special field of work, he is training North Korean experts too! Hässig recently returned from an intensive teaching time in Pyongyang. He reports:
»Everything went well. The people were very satisfied with our courses.
I was able to visit the Duru-Island, where we plan to build the model home. The construction site is chosen well and the farmer was very interested in my consulting and the idea of a straw bale house.“
Every participant gets a diploma.
The courses of Werner Hässig were very well attended. The participants (in total 60 people) lively discussed the topics. An evaluation showed that the participants appreciated the teachings and are well aware of the challenge lying ahead: To put into practice what they have learnt. This will not be easy as some of the construction materials are difficult to obtain in the North of Korea. We look forward to the results!
