Helmholtz Centre Berlin
In operation – Solar façade of the testing hall

The testing hall planned and realised by DGI Bauwerk and equipped with a façade-integrated photovoltaic system is now being operated by Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin as a real laboratory.
The official commissioning took place on 6 September 2021 in the presence of the State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Energy and Operations of the State of Berlin, Christian Rickerts.

INFORMATION

Different seasons and weather conditions: Over long periods of time, the actual behaviour of the solar modules can now be researched. In the building itself [clean room, various laboratories and assembly stations], researchers develop and build globally unique components for BESSY II and other synchrotron radiation sources for internationally renowned accelerator research at HZB.

Architectural offices – reliable calculation of the hourly rate and expenseTraining seminar in September - Berlin Chamber of Architects

Architectural offices – reliable calculation of the hourly rate and expense
Training seminar in September – Berlin Chamber of Architects

Wednesday and Friday, 8./10. September 2021, 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Dr.-Ing. M. Sc. Business Engineer Lucas Tibes is managing director and head of the controlling department at DGI Bauwerk Gesellschaft von Architekten. On the basis of specific practical examples, he will present the business context of an architectural office and impart the most important types of costs and influencing factors to the participants. They learn to independently determine overhead surcharge rates as well as individual hourly employee rates on the basis of a business analysis. Project and offer calculations are created with simple tools (Google Sheets) and the risks and optimisation potentials are discussed. Important key figures for evaluating the economic efficiency of the office are presented and reviewed.

Completed: multifunctional office and switching station building for 50hertz

Completed: multifunctional office and switching station building for 50hertz

The new building for 50Hertz Transmission GmbH located in Berlin-Charlottenburg has been completed. Modern, flexible offices on the upper floors and a canteen are now available for the approximately 100 employees. The hall for a 110kV switching station, control rooms and garages for trucks are located on the ground floor.
A curtain wall with light grey metal cladding is attached to a two-storey base made of dark grey fibre cement panels. A colourful play of rotatable perforated sheet metal lamellas shadows the window areas facing the lounge areas.
The construction was carried out while the transformer station was in operation – design and realisation by DGI Bauwerk.

Charité Berlin – laying of the foundation stone for innovative research centres BECAT und Si-M

On 2 July 2021, the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Technische Universität Berlin laid the foundation stone for the two innovative research centres “The Simulated Human” [Si-M] and the “Berlin Center for Advanced Therapies” [BeCAT]. The centres are optimally planned and equipped for the research and development of novel biomedical technologies. DGI Bauwerk designs and realises the BECAT research centre in LPH 2-8 HOAI and is responsible for the construction management of the Si-M research building on behalf of the architectural office HDR.

Modular buildings for daycare centres - topping-out ceremony in Berlin

Modular buildings for daycare centres – topping-out ceremony in Berlin

The MOKIB programme started in 2017 and aims to build new daycare places throughout the city. The daycare centres are designed in a modular, prefabricated system construction made of wood. The prefabricated elements are assembled directly on the construction site. The completion of the new wooden daycare centre is planned for the beginning of 2022. The two-storey version designed by the Berlin general planner Kersten + Kopp Architekten GmbH. DGI Bauwerk is part of the team and works on LPH 6-7 HOAI. The Senator for Urban Development and Housing, Mr. Sebastian Scheel and the State Secretary for Youth and Family, Ms. Sigrid Klebba invited to the topping-out ceremony on July 1st, 2021.

Insights into new things at the Architecture Day 2021

The Center for Light and Environmentally-Friendly Structures in Braunschweig opened its doors on Architecture Day.
While observing all hygiene measures, the numerous interested visitors were able to find out about the hybrid timber construction of the unusual research building – and experience the result live.

ZeluBa-VIDEO

A group of architecture enthusiasts made the long journey to the testing hall in Berlin-Adlershof. They were rewarded with an exclusive guided tour of the building.
Explanations of the technical challenges and information about the component-integrated photovoltaic system were the main focus.

New research building in Braunschweig:
Center for Light and Environmentally-FriendlyStructures ZELUBA Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research, Wilhelm Klauditz Institute WKI

The Fraunhofer WKI scientists move into the new building designed by DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher,
which combines hybrid and sustainable building systems.
The “Center for Lightweight and Environmentally Compatible Buildings ZELUBA®” was built on the campus of the TU Braunschweig in the immediate vicinity of the university’s building institutes, in order to expand the research capacities of the Fraunhofer WKI.
The scientists will move into the new building at the beginning of June 2021, where they focus on research and development of light and hybrid materials and structural elements including their environmental and fire performance. Wood in particular is used as a constructive, sustainable building material. The building itself thus reflects the principles of light and environmentally friendly construction. Renewable raw materials are used, which have advantages in terms of carbon dioxide emissions, weight and transport energy.

Darmstadt, Germany - FAIR successfully achieved another milestone

Darmstadt, Germany – FAIR successfully achieved another milestone

The large underground FAIR ring accelerator SIS100 on the northern FAIR construction site with a circumference of 1,100 meters is a central part of the future accelerator center FAIR [Facility for Antiproton Ion Research], currently being built in international collaboration at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum in Darmstadt.
The structural work for the SIS100 is completed. The ring closure of the tunnel system has been made, and the concrete layer of the last tunnel slab has been poured. It marks an important milestone in the realization process of the entire FAIR project. ion42 comprising the architectural offices DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher is responsible for the conception, design and realisation of FAIR.
