What is the Purpose of Building Transformation and Urban Transformation?  

The purpose of building and urban transformation is to construct modern, safe, energy-efficient buildings where new construction techniques of the era are implemented and construction materials developed with cutting edge technologies are used.

  • To prevent loss of life and property by transforming structures that are exposed to disaster risks.
  • To improve the quality of life
  • To establish environmentally sensitive residential areas.
  • To construct energy-efficient buildings.

It is anticipated that 7 million existing houses will be demolished and rebuilt within the scope of urban and building transformation efforts, especially in Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir, and the transformation process is expected to be completed in 20 years. The estimated construction cost is expected to be between 100 billion USD and 400 billion USD, where there will be a demand for 35 million windows.
