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.

Register now – online-seminar
General planning + BIM

On June 17th, 2021, we are organising an online seminar on the subject of BIM [Building Information Modeling] and general planning with our GP team from the JGU nuclear physics project. In company with KREBS + KIEFER, planning group M + M AG, MB Systems GmbH & Co. KG and TDB Landschaftsarchitektur. Furthermore we will present different perspectives in the individual service phases in 6 keynote speeches followed by a discussion about the future of Building Information Modeling with the audience. The main topics in the online seminar are the possibilities of BIM planning, proven methods, opportunities and risks as well as the feedback from planning and construction supervision.

Sport activities on the campus
Completion of the first type sports hall at the Lily-Braun Gymnasium Berlin-Spandau

After the foundation stone was laid in January 2020, the first of a total of 12 type sports halls from the Berlin school building campaign completed on April 23, 2021, was handed over to the school and sports department of the Spandau district.
The three-field sports hall of the Lily-Braun-Gymnasium is located on the former football field to the north on the school grounds.
As soon as a return to everyday lessons is possible, there will effectively be more sport activities for the students, because the bus trip to the hall nearby is no longer necessary. Until then, the school will use the sports hall for theory lessons and for high school exams.
After accompanying the competition process, DGI Bauwerk processes the entire planning cycle of the general planner as well as the execution of the general contractor according to the guidelines of the Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing.

 

EDGE Südkreuz, Berlin Spectacular – modular scaffold and trees

EDGE Südkreuz, Berlin
Spectacular – modular scaffold and trees

On an area of around 10,100 square metres close to the train station Südkreuz in Berlin an office complex is being built of a wooden hybrid construction. DGI Bauwerk provides the service phases 6-9 HOAI.
The shell construction work is now completed. The steel structure of the so-called trees has been installed in the atrium. Tree-like structures grow at different heights in the generously glazed atrium under a transparent EFTE roof that rests on a wooden truss construction. These are linked by stairs and connecting walkways and each open up one of the office units on the total of six upper floors.
The impressive scaffold is required for the assembly of the trees and the atrium roof, it already gives an idea of the later spectacular interior.

Scanning when entering and logging out when leaving the office

DGI increases the security for all employees beyond the already introduced possibilities for short tests. This concerns the quick traceability of contacts within the office in the event of an infection.
With the Luca app, registration is fast, secure and free. In our office and also in public, it is easy to use for all employees – QR codes are located at the entrances to the office floors. Visitor data remains anonymous to DGI. Only in case of an infection the data can be released to the health department for contact tracking.

experiment hall 1 with technical center
Concreting of the ceiling starts – 130 trucks spread over about 14 hours

During the construction of the new Experiment Hall 1, the necessary radiation shielding standards will be achieved using a detailed concrete pouring strategy that serves as the basis of the design. This includes demanding monitoring and documentation of each of the steps in the process. A major challenge is that the 2.5m thick ceiling slab needs to be poured as one piece meaning that work starts at 4:00am with back-ups for all the necessary equipment, including a concrete plant, being readily available in order to ensure that the work is carried out without interruption. The long curing times [28+28 days] will also create its own challenges that have been taken into account.

DGI fire protection: contemporary handling of monuments
Closely explored: 78 buildings of the Prussian Palace and Garden Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg

As architects, we unite the requirements of today’s standards with the interests of cultural monuments: Fire protection must also respect monument protection by mediating between today’s requirements and historical heritage.
Since 2014, the DGI fire protection team closely explored 78 buildings of the Prussian Palace and Garden Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg. Many of the listed objects are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The fire protection processing of approx. 73,000 m² building area has now been successfully completed.

 

 

Multi-project management and serial construction Realisation of three-field sports halls in modular timber construction in Berlin

Multi-project management and serial construction
Realisation of three-field sports halls in modular timber construction in Berlin

The Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing Berlin tendered a competition for general planners. The task included the modular type design of a three-field sports hall, which will be implemented at nine locations with a few local adjustments. The type design is based on a modular timber construction of the hall structure with a high degree of prefabrication.
After accompanying the competition procedure, DGI Bauwerk is currently handling the entire planning cycle of the general planner and the execution of the general contractor according to the guidelines of the Senate Administration.
The innovative timber construction method requires a particularly high degree of deadline assurance in the realisation and simultaneous coordination of the nine locations, which have very different development situations. Prefabrication and delivery as well as the introduction of the wooden construction elements are closely timed in a fixed sequence on the respective construction sites.
Six sites are currently under construction at the same time. Another three are to be completed in 2021. Six locations will be finished this year.
