Sustainable Administrational Building in Paulinenaue / Construction start
We are happy to announce that we are about to start construction on a new administrational building for the Regional Administration for rural development, agriculture and land consolidation (LELF) in Paulinenaue, Germany.
Natural and resource saving materials is always central and important in our work and this why the building has been completely designed and planned with sustainable materials and building techniques. Thanks to the use of recycled concrete for the necessary structural strip fundaments and a foam glass gravel as footing the usage of fossil materials could be reduced to a minimum. Above the baseplate the building is constructed with a timber framework and the walls are insulated with poured in and compressed straw. The ceilings and the timber truss remain exposed and the elevator shaft is constructed in cross-laminated timber. All elements are prefabricated. While the roof on the north side will be extensively green, the southern roof will be covered with a highly efficient in-roof photovoltaic system. The building will be mainly naturally ventilated and heated and cooled with geothermic energy.
Estimated Completion: end of 2020
