Groundbreaking ceremony for the “Jean Monnet 2” office complex in Luxembourg

June 4, 2018 saw the groundbreaking ceremony for the European Commission’s ‘Jean Monnet 2’ office complex in Luxembourg. JMO2, a consortium comprising KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten, Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure and the French engineering firm EDEIS in Illkirch, was commissioned with all performance stages, including general planning, for the entire project. The around 90-meter high office tower and the seven-story, approx. 180-meter long block have a total surface area of approx. 19,000 m². Boasting a tower, peripheral block building and forecourt, the urban composition creates an inviting gesture intended to embody the principle of openness propagated by the European Union. Alongside office space for more than 3,600 employees, the complex features various special areas such as a conference center and auditorium, a library, various hospitality facilities including a staff restaurant, a fitness and sport area, and a medical center. The prestigious entrance hall extends the entire depth of the building and links all the various sections with one another.

Here we go: Laying of the foundation stone for the GfK headquarters in Nuremberg

From now on the newbuild for the global market research company GfK (Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung) will be growing skywards on the Kohlenhof site in Nuremberg. To this end, a ceremony marking the laying of the foundation stone was held on Friday, April 27. According to plans drawn up by the firm of architects KSP Jürgen Engel in Munich and Frankfurt/Main, alongside the newbuild for GfK with a gross surface area of approx. 53,000 m², a new parking deck will also be built. Over the coming years the 11-hectare former industrial and railroad site will be transformed into a new office location. The state-of-the-art, 6-story office complex will be divided into three buildings that are linked with one another and sport a clinker façade and large windows that interpret the robust, industrial character of the former railroad site. Cutting-edge building services engineering and automation, not to mention terraces and greened courtyards for breaks ensure a high degree of comfort and a communicative working environment. It is hoped the newbuild will be awarded LEED certification in Gold. The project is being realized by a consortium comprising Aurelis Real Estate GmbH & Co. KG, Pegasus Capital Partners GmbH, and Art-Invest Real Estate.
