We’re happy to announce that our project with Bundschuh Architects Suhrkamp / L34 has been nominated for the DAM German Architecture Prize.
The nuclear chemistry of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) with its research reactor TRIGA has been given a new laboratory building. DGI Bauwerk provides work phases 2-9. The ensemble from the 1960s is replaced by a new building that is structurally and functionally connected to the building erected in 2008. The state government of Rhineland-Palatinate is investing around 43.5 million euros in the new replacement building with a usable area of around 2,000 square metres. The groundbreaking ceremony is held by University President Professor Georg Krausch, Rhineland-Palatinate Minister of Science, Professor Konrad Wolf and the Rhineland-Palatinate Finance Minister Doris Ahnen. Afterwards Professor Tobias Reich, Dean of Faculty 09 Chemistry, Pharmacy, Geography and Earth Sciences as well as Holger Basten, Managing Director of the State Property and Building Management (LBB) explain the design and the construction measure.
The construction pit for the floor slab of the first partial construction of the new Center for Fundamental Physics [CFP] at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz [JGU] was completed at a depth of around 12 metres. The impressive excavation pit alone, in which the research bunker is now being built with over 5,000 cubic metres of special concrete, shows the particular challenge for everyone involved, especially the general planning team headed by DGI Bauwerk and the executing construction companies.
Before the start of the shell construction phase, Finance and Construction Minister Doris Ahnen, Science Minister Prof. Dr. Konrad Wolf, University President Prof. Dr. Georg Krausch, the construction manager for the MESA experiment hall, Prof. Dr. Kurt Aulenbacher from the Institute for Nuclear Physics, and the Managing Director of the State Property and Building Management [LBB], Holger Basten, in the presence of the two PRISMA + speaker Prof. Dr. Matthias Neubert and Prof. Dr. Hartmut Wittig take the opportunity to inform themselves on site about the construction progress.
‘Especially in these difficult times I am very happy about the progress of the construction of the Center for Fundamental Physics. The structural infrastructure is an essential prerequisite for the success of the scientific work of the Mainz research groups in particle and hadron physics and thus for the excellence cluster PRISMA +’, explains the President of JGU, Prof. Dr. Georg Krausch.
On a site of approximately 150,000 m2, 25 buildings are being constructed. Amongst them are an underground accelerator tunnel with 1,100 metres circumference as well as other unique buildings, that they are designed to house and operate the newly developed high-tech research facilities. The construction work began in the summer of 2017.
The construction of each tunnel section is progressing with the ring coming full circle. The excavating and securing constructions are completed.
Ion42, a consortium of the DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher architects, is responsible for the design and realisation.
We are happy to announce that we have strenghtend our management team by appointing additional directors starting from January 2020. The new team enables us to tackle the increasingly complex challenges of our field of work and to further develop the practice with an eye to the future. Additional experts are now available to you in all sectors of our architectural scope, ready to provide a trustworthy collaboration.

One of the largest international research construction projects worldwide is located in Darmstadt: FAIR, the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research.
This drone time lapse shows the progress of an exceptional construction site over two years [2018 to 2019].
The existing building B of the Jewish Hospital Berlin is being expanded by two three-story extensions.
Brit Ismer, the commercial director, summarises the project idea in her speech at the topping-out ceremony: New patient rooms with more comfort, shorter distances for doctors and nurses.
Among the numerous guests State Secretary Martin Matz could be welcomed, who also took time to inspect the new rooms.
The construction work takes place during ongoing hospital operation and requires structural changes in the existing building material. The consortium JKB B GbR baumgarten simon architects and DGI Bauwerk were awarded the contract in 2018.
All over Berlin, structurally identical three-field sports halls are being built as part of the “Fast-track Building Programme for School Sports Halls”. With a high degree of prefabrication and a modular design, these can be erected quickly, economically and sustainably. At the Lily-Braun-Gymnasium in Spandau, the first nine sports halls in Spandau, Steglitz, Lichtenberg, Mitte, Reinickendorf and Charlottenburg are being built as part of the “Quick Building Programme for School Sports Halls”. In the future, this sports hall will not only be used by the pupils of the Lily Braun grammar school, but also by the numerous active and highly committed sports clubs in the neighbourhood The finalisation of the halls is already planned for early 2021. DGI Bauwerk is responsible for the project management.
Right in front of the Alexa shopping centre, the construction of the 150-metre-high “Alexander Berlin’s Capital Tower”, officially begins. It is the first one of a group of planned towers at the Alexanderplatz. According to the plans by Ortner & Ortner, 377 apartments will be built on 35 floors by the end of 2023.
The construction site is located on a highly frequented place in the city centre. With its safety and health coordinators, DGI Bauwerk makes an effective contribution to occupational safety and health protection for all labourers working on the construction site.
The centre of Altona is growing: The City School Altona contributes to the development of the urban district. Located adjacent to a park, the modern and sustainable school is being built on a building plot of 3,500 square meters.
After words of welcome from the First Mayor Peter Tschentscher, the Managing Director of SBH [School Building Hamburg], Ewald Rowohlt, and the Principal, Andrea Lüdtke, the foundation ceremony was solemnly laid in the presence of pupils from the school.
DGI Bauwerk, Hamburg, has successfully bid for the contract for the construction planning and realisation.
