Description: 

restado.de is the largest marketplace for reclaimed construction materials in Europe. The materials come from deconstruction or oversupply, or are left over from projects. Typical materials include bricks, wood, tiles, windows, doors and façade elements.

There are currently one million items worth more than €40 million in stock which can be matched to demand from professional and private construction projects.

As a specialised platform, restado offers specific product information together with building instructions, making the resource suitable for both private and professional buyers. This provides a circular solution for sourcing building materials locally. 

The exchange platform primarily serves German-speaking countries but is planning to expand into other European countries.

Main results: 

Both 60% of global waste and resource efficiency can be linked to the construction sector. This marketplace for reclaimed construction materials has several thousand types of materials. It has already saved more than 1 million tons of GHG.
