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.

Topping-out ceremony - QUARTIER BUNDESALLEE Berlin

Topping-out ceremony – QUARTIER BUNDESALLEE Berlin

The topping-out ceremony for the unique project development Quartier Bundesallee is set on May 29, 2019.

By 2020, a modern office complex for the Berliner Volksbank comprising three building sections and four residential buildings in the quiet rear section with a total of 83 residential units will be completed.
DGI Bauwerk is commissioned with the object monitoring services of the building project [houses 1 to 7 including basement / underground car park and grounds].

The laying of the foundation stone for the new 50hertz building in Berlin-Charlottenburg

On May 22, 2019, the construction site in Darwinstraße started with the the laying of the foundation stone.

A multifunctional office and switching station building is being built on the Charlottenburg substation site. On the ground of the Berlin Charlottenburg transformer station DGI Bauwerk designed and is now realising a multi-functional office and switching station building with an underground parking for 100 employees.

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.

SiGeKo at an early stage

SiGeKo at an early stage

About the importance of an early involvement of a SiGeKo consultation

Many clients are not aware that a SiGeKo [health and safety coordination] consultation is not only reasonable during the construction phase but also the planning phase. On the request of a business partner, Dominik Lorentzen [DGI Bauwerk] outlined the importance of an early involvement of SiGeKo during the planning phase. A professional organisation of occupational safety does not end at the construction site but does continue with the future building use.

Beta BIM Camp 2018

Beta BIM Camp 2018

Talks for new inspirations, ideas and impulses about BIM

Just before the year ends three colleagues from DGI took the opportunity to participate in the BIM Camp preview. This was the initial trial for an open gathering, where interested architects and planners can have an exchange about BIM – without a fixed agenda or moderation. The contents are developed on-site and processed in small groups. At the Beta BIM Camp 2018 the participants talked about the option of data exchange, the question of how BIM changes our thinking and the connection between creativity and BIM.
