Fair - Expanded Structural Work for Plant Area North

Fair – Expanded Structural Work for Plant Area North

The FAIR particle accelerator facility in Darmstadt is one of the world’s biggest and most complex construction projects for international cutting-edge research.

Fair stands for “Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research”.
On the construction site of the FAIR particle accelerator facility in the north of Darmstadt, things are progressing. The excavation pit for the large ring accelerator lies at a depth of twenty metres. In the area of the accelerator tunnel and the adjacent crossing building, the floor slabs, walls and ceiling slabs are already being concreted.

Topping out ceremony
Centre for Light and Environmentally-Friendly Structures

Construction with futuristic method

At the TU Braunschweig campus, the Centre for Light and Environmentally-Friendly Structures [ZELUBA] of the Wilhelm Klauditz Institute is currently being built. The scientific building features a modular hybrid design with large-size wooden prefabricated elements.
Now the time has come: on August 28, 2019 the topping out ceremony can be celebrated right on schedule.

Developing flexible solutions for new buildings and conversions the combination of widely-differing materials, such as wood, steel, concrete and glass, presents a challenge in building construction which needs to be dealt with for economic and ecological reasons. The employees of the Fraunhofer WKI and the TU Braunschweig are researching together on innovative solutions in the field of hybrid, modular construction as well as in the development of light and environmentally-friendly construction systems. The Life Cycle Assessment of the building materials, hybrid components or entire buildings is also a sector in the field of work.

Lucas Tibes, authorised representative of DGI Bauwerk Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH, discusses the essential parameters for optimised building operations during the planning and construction phase. Accompanying planning for life-cycle analyses contribute to an optimisation of the buildings operations. He presents calculation methods as well as influencing variables and explains how systematic commissioning-management leads to an efficient operational transfer.
Magnus Wandelt, Divisional Manager of DGI Bauwerk Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH, shows how IT-based controlling allows a transparent management of cost developments by identifying cost risks in order to enable timely countermeasures.

EDGE Südkreuz, Berlin – Laying of the foundation stone

Landmark in a modular wooden hybrid design

The laying of the foundation stone for an office complex of a sustainable wooden hybrid design close to the Berlin station Südkreuz takes place in mid-August. On an area of around 10,100 square metres the new headquarters of Vattenfall wilI be built consisting of an atrium [Carré] and a solitaire with underground parking, gastronomy and commercial spaces. DGI Bauwerk is assigned with the HOAI work stages 6 – 9.

Impressed by Building Information Modeling - BIM

In spite of the sunny weather several guests found their way to the DGI future lab in Berlin-Tiergarten. Next to refreshing drinks and snacks architect Mathias Handorf and industrial engineer Lucas Tibes presented the work with Big Open BIM at DGI Bauwerk. For a better insight live demonstrations had been provided on a highly complex model. To round off the day DGI-architect Andreas Schneider introduced the innovative scientific building FAIR [ARGE ion42].

German Prize for Architecture 2019

The prize goes to Castle Wittenberg, Lutherstadt-Wittenberg

The highly acclaimed German Prize for Architecture 2019 is offered by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the Federal Chamber of Architects and the Federal Office of Building and Regional Planning. The jury awarded the Castle Wittenberg which was converted and renovated by Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architects. DGI Bauwerk has been assigned for the HOAI work stages 6 + 8 by the ARGE Sanierung Schloss Wittenberg. Together all project participants succeeded to meet the deadline to the 500 year anniversary of Luther in 2017.

The official prize ceremony for the German Prize for Architecture 2019 will be held on September 26, 2019 at the state library Unter den Linden in Berlin.

DGI-Excursion to Braunschweig

DGI-Excursion to Braunschweig

A sunny visit to the Fraunhofer Institute of Wood Research [WKI] construction site

At the TU Braunschweig campus, the Centre for Light and Environmentally-Friendly Structures [ZELUBA] of the Wilhelm Klauditz Institute is currently being built. The three-part building has been designed and is overseen during construction by ARGE ZELUBA, a firm consisting of the architecture practices DGI Bauwerk and schneider+schumacher. The visit was led by the two project architects, Mathias Handorf  [DGI] and Malte Kittelmann [s+s].  The scientific building features a modular hybrid design with large-size wooden prefabricated elements, appropriate to its intended use and character.

Following lunch at the cafeteria of the TU Braunschweig, the excursion continued to a variety of locations in the city. These were the TU campus with its architecture pavilion, the renovated gallery of the Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum, the former castle residence of Braunschweig as well as the Brutal Modern exhibition at the Braunschweigisches Landesmuseum. Wolfgang Zwafelink, the former city construction councilor, led a tour through St. Leonhards Garten, a federal residential pilot project. Time between visits was spent chatting, eating ice cream and having drinks in the several green areas along the river.

Centre for Light and Environmentally Friendly Buildings, Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institute

At the construction site in Braunschweig, the test hall is beginning to emerge with the erection of the glued laminated timber, post and binder structure. The gable-sided steel structure that will receive the glass facade has also been erected.
The 15m long prefabricated wall and roof panels are already on site awaiting installation. Prefabrication and packaging suitable for transport have contributed significantly to the acceleration of construction.
The Centre for Light and Environmentally Friendly Buildings [ZeluBa] is an collaborative initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research [Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut], the Technical University [TU] Braunschweig and the Institute for Concrete Structures and Fire Protection of the TU Braunschweig.
Under the roof of the Fraunhofer WKI, a new building is also being built for this joint competence centre, in which materials and technologies for hybrid construction of multi-storey buildings will be developed in the future. The focus is on sustainable systems, the use of wood as a constructive building material and modular construction methods. It is precisely these principles of construction and facade design that the proposal of ARGE ZELUBA [DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher] is pursuing in an innovative way.
