The Innovation Arch in Augsburg, Germany awaits completion in the very near future. In several segments, work on the interiors specific to future tenants is already under way. At a Pre-Opening guests were able to convince themselves of the possibilities at this leading-edge office complex. More than 300 visitors attended the celebration and took immediate advantage of the on-site opportunity to obtain information about the new project from the building and development corporation WALTER Beteiligungen und Immobilien AG.
Starting now, the possibility equally exists to visualise the flexible office concepts at the “Innovationsbogen” under absolutely realistic conditions. In the meantime a model office measuring over 400 square metres has been completed in co-operation with the firm Wagner Living. Various usage concepts – from the classic individual office to team offices and on to open space solutions – make it clear just how much flexibility has been incorporated into the workplace concepts within the Innovation Arch. Thanks to the well-thought-out building structure, “New Work” and “agile working” can be implemented optimally. And an innovative work lounge with a variety of components for creative work or brief meetings has been integrated, too.
A visit to the spacious terrace with an impressive panoramic view is possible as well. “With the Innovation Arch we are setting a symbol for modern Augsburg that is visible from afar. We have created a landmark displaying the highest standards in terms of quality, flexibility, energy efficiency and sustainability. The Innovation Arch has truly earned its name,” explained Dr Roy Walter, executive board member at WALTER Beteiligungen und Immobilien AG, at the festive Pre-Opening.
Work on the “Innovationsbogen” continues to proceed right on schedule. Jürgen Kolper, executive board member at WALTER Beteiligungen und Immobilien AG, happily announces that “despite the problems with global supply chains and the current crisis in the construction industry, we take pride in seeing that our Innovation Arch will be completed on time.” Trendsetting and a world premiere all in one is the façade made of 100 % recycled aluminium. Due to this completely new type of technology alone, far more than 500 tonnes of CO2 are going to be saved.
LEED Certification in Platinum is aspired to
Further measures to benefit sustainability include the photovoltaic systems on the arch-shaped and green landscaped roof of the building, climate control for the rooms via comfortable canopy ceilings for heating and cooling, as well as the use of groundwater to ensure the heating and cooling supply. The endeavours aim to be awarded with LEED Certification bearing the highest rating in Platinum. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and is an internationally recognised certification system for ecological building.
