Description: 

restado.de is the largest marketplace for reclaimed construction materials in Europe. The materials are coming either from deconstruction, oversupply, or are leftovers. Typical materials include bricks, wood, tiles, windows, doors, facade elements, and much more.

Currently, there are 1.000.000 items worth more than € 40 million on stock which can be matched with the demand in professional and private construction projects.

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

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

Main results: 

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. Through its activity it has already saved more than 1 million tons of GHG.
