Groundbreaking for the New KROHNE Headquarters in Duisburg

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/6/2015, Location: Europe

On November 18, 2014 , the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new KROHNE headquarters building. The project with a total investment of 16 million euros will see the new offices being built on the existing KROHNE premises in Duisburg, and will be designed by the Berlin architects Baumhauer.

The new building will have a floor space of 8,195 square meter over 7 floors, making room for approx. 250 office workplaces. It compliments the shapes of the existing architecture and features an all-glass façade that begins to glow at dusk. With a height of approx. 27 meters, special attention was paid to the fact that no “dark alleys” arise between the buildings, and that sufficient space for nature and plants will be left.

With a double-skin facade, the new building is effectively insulated against noise. This construction simultaneously plays an important role in the energy and climate concept of the building as it can be conditioned by natural air flow. Heat pumps, geothermal probes and concrete core activation contribute significantly to energy efficiency.

The decision for the new building was due to the continued worldwide growth of the KROHNE group. Founded in 1921, the company has today more than 3,300 employees, 15 production sites and 43 international companies, and is a leading global provider of solutions for industrial process instrumentation. The Duisburg headquarters also saw significant growth, and since the space in the existing buildings is not sufficient for the current 650 employees, KROHNE decided already at the end of 2013 in favour of a new building.

The project begins with the excavation of the trench and geothermal drilling which will continue until March 2015. It is followed by the construction phase and then the expansion phase should begin in October 2015 and conclude in to June 2016. The final completion of the new headquarters is scheduled for August 2016.
