The family-owned Schöck Group is a leader in the production of ready-to-integrate construction parts. With over 50 years of industry experience and a presence in over 40 countries, the company promotes progress in the field of sustainable construction. is Schöck's official representative for Bulgaria in innovations for thermal bridging in construction.

See some of the world's examples of energy-efficient construction.

  • The Biotope - Lille, France

Biotop is one of the most impressive green buildings. Located in the middle of the important European business district of Euralille, the building creates a skyline that is a striking addition to the urban landscape.

With this project, the architects aim to create a building that combines a healthy microclimate and has a positive energy balance /produces more electricity than it consumes/.

To deal with thermal bridging in balconies, the design team chooses the Schöck Isokorb® structural elements for thermal bridging.

  • Passive building Linienstraße 23 - Berlin, Germany

The entire façade of the building is in one colour tone: plaster, doors and windows, blinds, even the house number - all façade elements are stone grey. This underlines the principle of the passive house: a tightly closed building envelope. The façade is lit by large window openings, and a large balcony overlooking the garden

"To meet the stringent requirements for a passive house, we thermally separated the connection between the wall and the unheated access ceiling to the underground garage with Schöck Isokorb® XT type Q. On the balcony, Schöck Isokorb® XT type K 40.“is used," explains Ing. Johannes Gotaut of BCO Architekten in Berlin.

  • Nowon EZ House - Seoul, South Korea

Nowon EZ House is the first zero-energy residential complex in Korea. The latest passive building technologies, some of which were applied for the first time in the country, were used in the construction of the complex.

The Schöck Isokorb® XT Type K and XT Type Z thermal bridging elements are applied to prevent thermal bridging in the balcony area.

Korea is located in a highly seismic area, which in no way prevents the disruption of thermal bridges with the Schoeck system.

  • Great Mosquie - Algeria

The third largest mosque in the world is among a portfolio of sites executed with Schöck's technical solutions. This impressive building features geometric architecture and a glamorous rectangular courtyard, a 265-metre-high minaret with a glass structure that is the tallest minaret in Africa.

Some of the most important points in the construction of such a large-scale project in this case are the avoidance of thermal bridges and associated thermal effects.

To prevent the occurrence of thermal bridges, the mosque's contractors trusted Schöck, which, as an international specialist in thermal insulation products, offered the most appropriate solution - Schöck Isokorb.

  • Civic Plaza - Surrey, Canada

With its impressive 52 floors, Civic Plaza is an example of energy-efficient high-rise construction. 37 of the building's floors have balconies, which are a potential problem due to the formation of thermal bridges.

The design team explored various options and settled on insulating the balconies from the main slab using Schöck's Isokorb® T thermal bridging elements.

The structural thermal insulation element installed in the building plate minimizes energy losses through thermal bridges.

  • Comandante Ferraz Station - King George, Antarctica

The station is a permanently stationed research base in Antarctica, named after the commander of the Brazilian Navy, Luis Antonio de Carvalho Ferraz. The harsh climatic conditions with huge temperature differences from outside to inside create a favourable environment for the occurrence of thermal bridges.

To prevent thermal bridging, the design team deployed 218 Isokorb structural elements between the interior and exterior steel columns and exterior staircases.

The thermal bridging elements are suitable for all steel grades and profiles and are made of stainless steel.
