Recognition for DGI Bauwerk   Competition for the construction of a new physics/nanostructural sciences building at Kassel University

Recognition for DGI Bauwerk
Competition for the construction of a new physics/nanostructural sciences building at Kassel University

The competition brief included complex specifications and the highest demands on functionality for the planning of a new building for physics/nanostructural sciences, which is to be realised as the first construction phase. An idea section was to be developed for the subsequent construction phases for the institutes of chemistry, biology and mathematics.
Seventeen selected offices took part in the competition.
In contrast to what was described in the competition brief, DGI Bauwerk’s entry located both buildings, the Institute of Physics and the NTC, on site A. The idea was that in future both the institutes of chemistry and biology and the mathematics building could be built contiguously on the limited number of sites. In order to achieve this, a very compact structure with up to 5 storeys and 2 inner courtyards was proposed for the Institute of Physics, which accommodates the entire room programme of the institute building.

Building laboratories today that will also work tomorrow. What solutions can there be with regard to efficient laboratory buildings with low energy consumption, what approaches, opportunities and potentials do holistic, sustainable campus concepts offer and what hurdles must be overcome during implementation? Many questions and approaches to solutions, examples and stimulating discussions were offered by the Laborrunde 2022 – this time again in presence and at the popular location in Berlin-Buch.
On the first day of the conference, Kai Otto, partner at schneider+schumacher, and Andreas Schneider, authorised signatory at DGI Bauwerk, gave an insight into the planning and construction of the FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) particle accelerator in Darmstadt.

Sustainable concept convinces – DGI Bauwerk general planning team
Contract awarded for Biocentre for the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel – Science City on the “Bremerskamp” site

In a multi-stage negotiation process, the Berlin-based architectural office DGI Bauwerk, together with an experienced general planning team, was able to convince the jury with its sustainable concept for the new building of the Biocentre for the Biology Section for the purpose of research and teaching on the campus of the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel and was awarded the contract.

By means of a hybrid construction method, materials are used according to their strengths and properties. They fulfil specific functions while at the same time minimising the use of resources. The façade concept deals with the design of a DNA or genome sequence and achieves both a rhythmic and consistent façade grid without appearing too repetitive.

As part of Kiel’s new “Bremerskamp” district, the Biocentre combines excellent research buildings, high-quality study and recreational facilities, and student and urban living. With a usable area of around 16,500 m2 and a gross floor area of 33,000 m2, the new building is the largest component of the new development of the “Bremerskamp” area.

It is planned with a direct connection to the CeTEB – Centre for Basic Research in Translational Evolutionary Biology and will accommodate the Zoological Institute, the Institute for General Microbiology, the Botanical Institute and the Department of Plant Breeding of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences.
Teaching and seminar rooms, research and administrative areas as well as recreation and communication areas will be created for the biology courses.
In addition to the intended certification of sustainability (BNB silver) of all new buildings on the site, an overall concept for energy supply will integrate renewable energies.
The cost framework for the construction phases is estimated at 75 million EUR for the 1st construction phase and 50 million EUR for the 2nd construction phase for the cost groups 200-500.

Laying of the foundation stone - a new residential building is being built on Quedlinburger Straße

Laying of the foundation stone – a new residential building is being built on Quedlinburger Straße

On 03.05.2022, the foundation stone was ceremoniously laid for the new residential building on the former commercial property at Quedlinburger Straße 45. The developer is WBM Wohnungsbaugesellschaft Berlin-Mitte mbH.

A total of 146 flats with a day-care centre and a neighbourhood meeting place are currently being built here (design by DMSW Architekten). Modular floor plans initially allow for the accommodation of refugees and later conversion into small flats for students and flats with up to 95 m² for families.
DGI Bauwerk is responsible for the tendering, contracting and construction management.

form follows beam – news from the large-scale project FAIR

Building laboratories today that will work tomorrow – that’s what the 18th Laborrunde Symposium will be about on 2 and 3 June in Berlin.
On the first day of the conference, Kai Otto, partner at schneider+schumacher, and Andreas Schneider, authorised signatory at DGI Bauwerk, will give an insight into the planning and construction of the FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) particle accelerator in Darmstadt at 12:55 pm.

The concept form follows beam by ARGE ion42 combines architecture, technology and landscape: only about 30 percent of the accelerator centre will be visible later on. The above-ground buildings follow the shape of the beam and are presented as part of a flowing movement. Another design element is the façade surfaces, which symbolically depict the beam intensity that takes place underground.

In addition to the heart of the facility, an underground accelerator ring with a circumference of almost 1100 metres, around 20 accelerator and experimental buildings as well as laboratories are being built on the 150,000 m2 site.

In the future, researchers from all over the world will gain new insights into the structure of matter and the development of the universe in outstanding experiments here.

News from the FAIR construction site
The technical building equipment is now starting in the first tunnel section

The centre of the FAIR construction site in Darmstadt is an underground accelerator ring with a circumference of almost 1100 metres, through which ions will later race at almost the speed of light.
At the beginning of March, the first section – just under a third of the tunnel – was completed to such an extent that the technical building equipment (TGA) could begin there. The brackets for the cable routes are being installed.
For the handover of this section, the concrete surfaces had to be prepared and the wall and ceiling paints as well as the floor coating applied.
A construction hoist has been installed and an overhead crane mounted in the delivery area of the ground floor to transport the materials of the building services companies from the ground floor to the tunnel level in the 3rd basement.
Ion42, a consortium of the DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher architects, is responsible for the design and realisation.
