How do we define Add.Vantage?
It is our aspiration to offer products and services with “Add.Vantage”. Products that already meet the highest environmental requirements in their standard version while also satisfying the demands on building physics, acoustics, fire protection, thermal and visual comfort. Combined with a comprehensive range of services – from the support in the design and planning process to the implementation of complex fit-out projects – we seek to cooperate with our customers and “Rethink Spaces” with them. For the people and their environment, for now and for the future!
Add.Vantage in Detail
First of all, it must be asked: What constitutes a good room that has a positive influence on our well-being and health? Some of the decisive factors are the design, the functionality and also the comfort of the room. Material Healthiness – the origin, composition and the effects of the materials used – becomes more and more relevant. This is reflected equally in the increasing importance of building certifications, certifi ed environmental product declarations (EPDs) or new systems such as the Cradle to Cradle® design concept and thematic databases as a planning basis for healthier buildings.
Lindner is one of the leading providers in the field of sustainable “Green Buildings” and thus makes an active contribution to the protection of the environment and the climate. Being a provider of a fully service chain – from planning and development through production to the handover of keys – we are able to support our customers optimally in the implementation of their individual Green Building projects. Lindner played a significant role in numerous real estate projects which have also received certifications for their holistic quality in the meantime.
Cradle to Cradle® - Considering products as nutrients
Lindner products are the result of the interaction of state-of-the-art technology and research, optimised use of resources and highest quality demands on function and design. In doing so, the aim is always to provide the longest possible service life. We even think one step further: Following the Cradle to Cradle® principle, we consider the complete product cycle, with the objective of avoiding waste from the beginning, to increase the use of regenerative energy, to realise a closed water cycle and to improve steadily the already very high social standards. The resulting products do not leave waste. Pioneer in this field is the Raised Floor NORTEC, whose calcium sulphate panel is made of FGD gypsum, water and cellulose fibers. These panels are produced in our plant in Dettelbach.
Sustainability and eco-efficiency play an important role in all our service areas and competences. Lindner also sets particularly high standards in the production sites to fulfil the various aspects and criteria for a resource-saving production. These include:
- use of ecologically tested, if technically possible, renewable and regional raw materials
- waste recycling, as completely as possible
- own energy production from a heating and power station for wood dust, photovoltaic or solar air conditioning and local heating from biomass
- recovery of residual powder
- one of the most modern processing plants for gypsum fiber waste
Knowing what´s in
Concerning the material healthiness of fit-out products and their effects on producers, processors and users, Lindner is leading with a wide range of healthy, technically and biologically recyclable system products. We develop and manufacture our own products and, wherever possible, use ecologically tested substances – worldwide. We are also prepared when it comes to the clearance of harmful substances or insulation technology in existing buildings. We don´t just know what is inside, we also know what has to be removed.
Conscious acting, for human and nature
The consistent alignment of our company to sustainability over many years is reflected in our vision of CO2-neutral and waste-free production sites. Based on environmental accountings according to ISO 14040/44 and an integrated management system for quality (ISO 9001) and environment (ISO 14001), we are constantly implementing numerous improvements which directly affect our material healthiness and our services.
We think in generations
Lindner is a family business. In the full sense of the word, because many of our employees are already working here in the third generation. It is therefore obvious for us to assume responsibility for our employees, for their families and for the society in general. This is reflected in many small and substantial measures, such as a corporate health management, organic food from our own farm for the staff canteen or in foundation work which initiates and supports different social projects in Germany and abroad.
Health comprises a number of different aspects. The personal perception and the physical constitution are usually paramount and are seen in connection with external factors such as particulate matter in large cities, nitrate pollution in the water or residues in food etc. It may also occur that materials and (harmful) substances have a negative effect on us in our “own home”. Therefore, Lindner already puts great attention to its development and production for the selection of low-emission and safe raw materials, followed by careful production and clean installation conditions. In addition, you receive considered response to questions about healthier interiors during the design and planning process, including better acoustics, indoor climate, illumination as well as the execution within predefined costs and timelines. Because health is our most precious asset.
This applies to our colleagues and partners as well as to the people who use our rooms.
Best view included
The effect of light on physical and mental health is well known. Therefore, the optimal lighting on the workplace takes a considerable influence to employee satisfaction and productivity. A transparent interior design supports the spreading of daylight into all corners of the office space. However, if this is not feasible, our specialists will find perfectly balanced lighting solutions for every workplace. From the free-standing luminaire to pendant lights to luminous ceilings – we ensure an appropriate illumination of the workplace day and night.
Optimal both in summer and winter
Neither too cold nor too warm, the air not too dry or too moist and just no drafts! No wishful thinking, but the basic thermal conditions that create a pleasant, productivity-enhancing and efficient environment. With countless combinations and integration possibilities in ceiling, floor and partition systems our heating and cooling systems ensure optimal thermal comfort and provide tailor-made and energy-saving air conditioning for every construction project.
More security in every space
Security is also an encompassing, multifaceted topic in the building sector. Starting with statics and flawless structural design through safe building technology and fire-proof interior fit-out to earthquake-proof solutions and products that have to endure in environments with high security risks. As a full-service provider with an interdisciplinary department for research and development, we not only create suitable product solutions, but we are also able to implement them professionally for all building classes.
Indoor Air Quality
Time to breathe deeply
90 % of our time is spent indoors. Poor air cannot only spoil our mood. Indoor climatic conditions, especially temperature, air exchange and relative air humidity as well as “hidden irritations”, as may be caused by contaminated construction products and materials or increased CO2 values, for example, affect the well-being. With all construction projects and products, we set the highest standards to ourselves. It goes without saying for us not only to adhere to the given emission values, but to remain below the limits.
Turn off noise - turn on health
As extensive as the sound requirements are depending on the use of space, just as different are the individual wishes of the customers. With configurable products and an own specialist department for room and building acoustics, Lindner develops practical acoustics concepts and implements them across all trades. Thanks to clever acoustic configuration, structuring and equipment, office spaces can be created that enable a self-sufficient and focused working as well as working creatively in a team across the board. An alleged contradiction as an experienced Add.Vantage. The same principle of dedicated planning and implementation for acoustics applies to all other kinds of spaces.
“Nothing is as constant as change.” And that is a good thing. For us, it is self-evident to recognise a chance in change and to be proactive in shaping positive changes. Lindner has further developed authentically over the course of more than 50 years, has perceived and implemented impulses at an early stage and aligned itself always new to the legal and social framework. We have listened to our customers and made their wishes possible. Always under the premise of finding solutions that create Add.Vantage for people and the environment.
Knowledge makes the difference
“The right information at the right time in the right place.” Digital building models, uniform standards and material information, which are retrievable at any time in a common data pool, can increase the efficiency of a project´s realisation from the very first planning stages. The similar is the case during the execution, where the use of Lean methods helps the construction teams of Lindner Group to be best prepared for the requirements of modern construction sites through the development of integral work processes and efficient installation procedures.
Workshop for the knowledge-based society
We develop solutions for modern and sustainable working environments that convince companies and employees equally. Solutions that allow creativity and exchanging knowledge while successfully managing the challenge of an economic and efficient use of space. Extensive workshops in advance guarantee a room concept that is perfectly adapted to all usage requirements. Well-considered structuring of the spaces allows the coexistence of creative areas and zoned retreats to ensure concentrated work.
Something new from time to time
Innovation cycles are getting shorter and shorter, digital transformation sets the pace. Employees should not only think proactively, but also face new challenges with agility and joy. Similarly, modern buildings and rooms should be designed as flexible as possible to respond quicker to new situations and requirements. Significant factors are not only time and money but also the increasing scarcity of resources calling for new approaches and technologies. Therefore, the use of recyclable or reusable materials and products that can be reinstalled quickly and easily whenever necessary is becoming increasingly important. Such as the system products of Lindner.
Security of Investment
Always one step ahead with security
Lindner is a healthy company. In all respects. As a strong, medium-sized family business, we are financially independent. With our own financing packages, you get the necessary security and creative freedom for the property of your choice. At Lindner, you can commission selected construction products and building services or even entire buildings and then lease it for a definite useful life or to finance it with us at a fixed interest rate. In addition, we offer a unique redemption option for our recyclable products.
It is time to think ahead
With the continuing digitalisation, it is also time for the construction industry to reinvent itself. The challenge lies particularly in finding new approaches, preserving fundamental values and conserving the treasures of nature. We want to push and establish technical innovations and sophisticated concepts that have a positive ecological and social impact. We seek to understand and implement accurately our customer’s demands with common sense and practical solutions, with efficient products and agile working methods to ultimately provide Add.Vantage and “Rethink Spaces”.
