Initial demolition work has begun on the grounds for the future Siemens Campus in Erlangen. Under contract to Siemens AG, as represented by Siemens Real Estate, in the south of the city on the grounds of the previous corporation facilities a modern, vibrant and sustainable campus will now arise. Siemens AG’s largest construction project world-wide hinges on a design proposal by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten and covers grounds of some 54 hectares and will be realized in line with seven phases (Modules 1 to 7). On the site for the first construction phase (Module 1) in coming months 12 large halls and office buildings will be torn down and the preparations made for constructing the new builds for the Siemens Campus. As part of the first module, by the year 2020 eight new office buildings and three carpark buildings will be completed. In total, in Modules 1 and 2 over an area of just short of 200,000 m2 new office, research and lab facilities will be created along with publicly accessible hospitality outlets and service offerings. Alongside the masterplan KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten was also commissioned to handle the general planning for Modules 1 and 2. The various phases of the entire project are scheduled for completion by 2030.
