14-05-2019: New administrative building on the campus of SARSTEDT Group

The company Sarstedt AG & Co KG decided in 2015 to expand its company location in Nümbrecht. From different designs, the decision for the new building of the administration building fell on the variant ‘Welcome’. The structure of the circular central building opens like two wings into the landscape. As a result, the front area appears generous and creates a spacious view to the campus. The innovative modern design of the new administration with its multifunctionality creates perfect frame- and working conditions for the employees of the company.

With an innovative modern design made by Architekten K2 GmbH, the new future-oriented administration building of the SARSTEDT Group in Nümbrecht-Rommelsdorf presents itself. The 25 million euro project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2021 for the company’s 60th anniversary, is an investment in the further development of the company.
The building will be equally characterised by open space and a modern working environment. The new company restaurant with outdoor terrace to the own pond, a multimedia exhibition area, but also individual retreats are only some of the offers that are currently being developed on the company premises.

26-03-2019: Babor opens futuristic building “The Curve”

The result is a futuristic building with lots of glass and white elements surrounding the building. Babor had commissioned Architekten K2 GmbH to make maximum use of the area between Neuenhofstraße and Gut Weide. “The Curve” now connects the old administrative wing with the production and logistics halls and is not only smart but also sustainable. The heating system is operated geothermally. For this purpose, 36 pipelines reach geothermal energy up to 100 meters below the building. By using the environmental energy (heat pump with geothermal probes) and the use of the combined heat and thermal power station, the primary energy consumption (including lighting and cooling) is reduced from 1,035 MWh/a (EnEV) to 496 MWh/a. The building consumes more than 50% less energy than required by law.

The company Dr. Babor GmbH & Co. KG is further expanding its company location in Aachen. For the expansion of the administrative areas, an efficient solution was sought to upgrade the already densely populated company premises with a new administration building. For this reason, we have developed a structure called “The Curve”, a 6-storey glass sculpture that completes the site at the eastern border. The façade is designed with circumferential and horizontally swinging façade bands, which lend the object a dancing lightness in addition to its feminine appearance. The existing administration is connected by a transparent skywalk.
