With the new 95-page GEG Guide, the German Brick and Tile Industry shows how residential buildings made of bricks can be energy efficient and evaluated in compliance with the GEG and KfW. It enables experts to carry out simplified and cost-effective planning in the shortest possible time.

The GEG Guide for Residential Buildings complements the comprehensive range of services offered by the brick and tile industry for architects, planners, students as well as vocational and master craftsmen.  It is available free of charge and can be downloaded on the website of the Lebensraum Ziegel information campaign.
