Royal Imtech has received new orders worth €37m to provide energy efficiency solutions for two office buildings in Germany.
The projects include "Elbarkaden" in Hamburg and the new ‘Main Gate Porta’ office development in Frankfurt / Main.
The Elbarkaden project covers an area of over 23,500m² and houses the new Greenpeace head office. There is also space for retail, culture and restauarant units, as well as apartments.
The Main Gate Porta development includes a 19-storey, 70m-high office building, a seven-storey perimeter block and covers an area of about 20,000m².
As per the deal, Imtech will implement the entire energy system of the Elbarkaden development based on its own Active Building concept.
Technology implemented by Imtech will ensure that the system emits 34 grams of carbon dioxide per generated kilowatt hour and that primary energy requirements remain below the level of 100 kWh per m² a year.
The company will implement high-energy heat recovery, waste heat usage, cold recovery, thermal storage and special pumping technology systems into the building.
Imtech will make use of renewable energy from photovoltaics, wind power systems on the roof, geothermal systems, and solar power and biomass technologies
In the ‘Main Gate Porta’ office development, Imtech will be responsible for the complete sustainable technical infrastructure, including hidden heating, ventilation and air conditioning solutions in high-tech ceilings with energy-efficient integrated heating and cooling systems.
The deal will also see Imtech provide electrical solutions, all water and LED lighting solutions, and the complete security and fire safety.
A building management system will manage all the mechanical processes to increase the structure’s energy efficiency and lower the carbon footprint.
Elbarkaden received a Gold pre-certification as per German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) standards and Main Gate Porta undercuts the German Energy Savings Regulation (EnEV) by 25%.
