Züblin has been awarded a €85m contract for the Sonnenhöfe im Sternenviertel project in Berlin, Germany.
Züblin has been commissioned as the general contractor for the project in Neu-Schönefeld, north of the future Berlin Brandenburg Airport in Germany.
The contract includes the construction of 16 four to five-storey buildings with 559 rental apartments of one to four rooms each with a total living space of approximately 38,000m2.
The project also features two underground car parks and two office complexes with more than 10,000m2 of space.
Apartment blocks will be grouped around three green courtyards, with offices to the west of Sonnenhöfe.
The 51,100m2 project will be built in the centre of Neu-Schönefeld with construction beginning next month. It will be undertaken by Nord, a subdivision of Züblin.
Designed by Blumers Architekten of Berlin, the Sonnenhöfe project is due to be completed by August 2021.
The Sonnenhöfe project is a follow-up contract to the Theodor-Fontane-Höfe project in Neu-Schönefeld.
Züblin Nord technical subdivision manager Jens Quade said: “We are delighted by our client’s trust in the partnership to lead another demanding project to success.”
Under its team concept partnering scheme, Züblin is serving Sonnenhöfe and Theodor-Fontane-Höfe as a general contractor. The company will cover all construction-related tasks from project planning to design and execution.
Established in 1898, Züblin is a subsidiary of European construction company Strabag.
