Energy Campus awarded with DGNB platinum certificate

Stiebel Eltron sets new benchmarks regarding sustainable architecture with a unique plus-energy-concept in its new training centre, the Energy Campus.

Commitment to sustainability in focus

According to the guidelines of the DGNB, only building material with high environmental requirements for production and dismantling are allowed for sustainable construction. Therefore, the architects from ‘Hegger-Hegger-Schleiff’ chose Novelis ff2® pre-painted aluminium for the 2,850 m2 façade of the training centre. The architects cooperating with Prof. Dr. Fisch (TGA Braunschweig) combined the dark Novelis aluminium façade with two large glass façades on the X- and Y-front of the building.

Sustainable architecture meets attractive façade design

The façade construction company ‘Schneider die klempner gmbh’ installed coil-coated aluminium cassettes of 2mm gauge in an attractive anodised look which covers the building in an attractive way. The colour retention and low maintenance costs are specific characteristics for the PVdF paint C34 with anodised look. The 100% recyclable and resource-saving material with AIMg3 alloy enables material savings of one third compared to commercial aluminium with AIMg1 alloy. A dynamic effect is created through the monolithic rear-ventilated cassettes with different heights in grid dimension of 150/300/600/900 mm. Clip-cassettes with a length of up to 3,700 mm, were installed piece-by-piece on a BWM-substructure with invisible fastening, ensuring a uniform appearance of the building.

DGNB platinum certification

Due to the environmental-friendly construction process and the high quality of all chosen materials, the building was certified with DGNB platinum by the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen). Through solar cells on the roof and modern ventilation and water saving systems the building produces more energy than it actually consumes.
