• Neubau Deutsches Generalkonsulat Kalkutta

GERMAN CONSULATE GENERAL KOLKATA, INDIA
VISA OFFICE

On behalf of the Foreign Office, DGI Bauwerk in cooperation with local contact architects and Indian construction companies planned and realised as general planner the renewal of the existing German Consulate General building in the security and fire protection sector as well as the new construction of three other buildings: a Visa Section, guard house and vehicle gateway with a guard house [according to sample design of the BBR for ‘exterior guard’].
A German company for safety technology converted the high safety requirements for bullet and burglary resistance for the whole project. The external walls of the buildings were planned in a double-shell construction to meet the climatic conditions, wherein the inner shell serves as a massive storage mass. For protection against floods, the one-storey administrative building is slightly higher than the surrounding ground level.
