This is one of the most energy-efficient and resource-saving office buildings in Germany. The project developer oriented itself to the definition of a low-energy house 30 % below the Energy Saving Ordinance. The building has now been certified according to the US environmental standard for sustainable construction “LEED Platinum”.
The project to be supervised was the construction of a high-rise office building based on the design by architects KSP Engel und Zimmermann with 20 upper floors, 3 basement floors and a ground floor with a greater floor height.
The building consists of two L-shaped building sections in the ground plan which enclose an atrium and form a total floor area of approx. 63 m x 63 m. In addition, there is a separately constructed parking pallet or multi-storey car park with 8 above-ground floors for the construction of approx. 317 parking spaces.
The architecture is characterised by interior reinforced concrete columns, meeting boxes (bay-like) suspended from the atrium facades (interior facades) and suspended storey connecting stairs. A special feature is the requirement for the possibility of dividing the building into units of less than 400 m².
The project was to be completed by mid 2010. In order to achieve this goal, the execution started in autumn 2008.
SMV was commissioned by the project development company Lang & Groß with the complete project management over all stages.
