Drilling work started on the campus of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz

Construction phase of the new Center for Fundamental Physics

The provided funding by the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz [JGU] allows to establish the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter” [PRISMA+]. Currently a new electron accelerator on the Gutenberg Campus will be constructed. The MESA accelerator and the key experiments will extend across several stories below ground including a new experimental hall provided by the new research building “Center for Fundamental Physics”. For the hall extension of the new MESA underground particle accelerator the drilling work has now begun. They are vibration-optimised and low-vibration to prevent damage to the sensitive experimental facilities of the Mainz Institute of Nuclear Physics.

The general plannning team [Poganiuch + Dang Architekten/Construction Management | Krebs + Kiefer / Structural Design | PGMM /Technical building equipment HLSK, MSR, laboratory planning| Müller & Bleher /Technical building equipment ELT, conveyor technology | TDB Landscape Architecture] under the direction of DGI Bauwerk has to meet the very complex structural and technical requirements ensuring a consistent overall concept and an efficient construction work during ongoing university activities.

Groundbreaking ceremony Construction of a new school building in Berlin

Groundbreaking ceremony
Construction of a new school building in Berlin

Between the Emanuel-Lasker-Oberschule and the adjacent Modersohn Elementary School, Corinthstraße 7, a connecting school building is being built. It includes specialised rooms, child care facilities, a cafeteria as well as offices for both schools.
All in all, school places for about 1,000 pupils will be available. A new two-field sports hall will also be built on the new campus and the outdoor facilities oder outdoor area around the newly built sports hall is going to be re-landscaped. Completion is scheduled for early summer 2021. DGI Bauwerk is charged with the project control services.

BDA Berlin - Young Talent Awards 2019

The BDA Berlin presented the BDA Young Talent Awards 2019 at the IG Metall-Haus in Berlin Kreuzberg on 19th September 2019. The results of the Tibes Scholarship 2018/2019 were reported by Marta Setúbal. She outlined her project archive as a dispositive for reactivating attachment to a place, developed in a One Year Promotion. The winners of the Hans Schaefers Prize for young architects of Berlin as well as the theory prize Daniel Gössler Commendation were honored.
The ceremony opened with speeches of the patron of the Hans Schaefers Prize’ Katrin Lompscher [Senator for Urban Development and Housing], Andreas R. Becher [Chairman BDA Berlin], Hans-Joachim Paap [Chairman of the Hans Schaefers Foundation] and Bernd Tibes [Founder of the Tibes Scholarship] and was presented by Anne Schmedding. The musical framework was created by the Pentaton Saxophone Quartet.

Center for Applied Microstructure Diagnostics [CAM]

With the extension of the Fraunhofer Competence Center for Applied Electron Microscopy and Microstructure Diagnostics [Fraunhofer CAM], the Fraunhofer IMWS is expanding its international leading position in the field of microstructure diagnostics.

The building is designed and built by DGI Bauwerk. It is located on the Heideallee, which is exposed to urban planning, forms the start of the Weinberg Campus Technology Park from within the city center.
Together with the existing building, a functionally independent building with the best possible conditions is being created in order to develop completely new material and defect analysis techniques in Halle. Such powerful micro- and nanostructural analysis processes ensure that materials and components are made more efficient and safe in operation – a key issue, for example, for automotive electronics on the way to autonomous driving.
The opening of the new building took place on Wednesday, 18 September 2019 in Halle [Saale].

TOPPING-OUT CEREMONY - ZELUBA FRAUNHOFER WKI

TOPPING-OUT CEREMONY – ZELUBA FRAUNHOFER WKI

"With the new building ZELUBA, we are giving the appropriate space to the exploration of urgent questions of today."

On August 28, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research celebrated together with the building trades the topping-out ceremony for the “Center for Light and Environmentally Friendly Structures [ZELUBA]” on the ground of the TU Braunschweig. The goal: the development of sustainable construction solutions for buildings.

Professor Dr.-Ing. Bohumil Kasal director of the Fraunhofer WKI explained the importance of the building: “What kind of new, sustainable materials can we develop to enable existing and future buildings to withstand the climate change?” For example: how to combine building materials to create new space while increasing energy efficiency? With the new building ZELUBA, we are giving the right room to research urgent questions of today. ”

After completion, which is scheduled for summer 2020, “ZELUBA” the scientific department of the Fraunhofer WKI will move into the building and continue its research and development work in cooperation with the TU Braunschweig.

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.

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.
