Sustainable education: The new replacement building at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences meets the Efficient Building Plus standard. Accelerated concrete core activation thanks to the use of Cobiax void former modules.

Work started in August 2018 on a new building for the production engineering, information technology and electrical engineering faculties at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences. This is being built on the Oberer Eselsberg, on behalf of the Ulm office of the Baden-Württemberg state agency for property and construction. Once it is complete at the end of 2020, the 38.4 million euro building will provide 5,800 m2 of floor space, which is enough room for around 1,000 students, and be equipped with the latest laboratory technology. The design, by the Ulm office of Baden-Württemberg Property and Construction, is currently being brought to life using plans from the Munich offices of Spreen Architects. The new complex will be rated silver under the Sustainable Building Assessment System (BNB), and will also be built to meet the requirements of the Efficient Building Plus standard. To meet the relevant requirements, as well as our Cobiax SL-M-220-240 elements, concrete core activation has also been used in the building’s ceilings and in other locations. A significant improvement in the concrete core activation response time is anticipated, because the amount of concrete has been reduced by 1,210 tonnes.

Wider Scopes as an obligation
Cobiax is more than just a brand. The catch phrase “Wider Scopes” extends far beyond the possibilities for modern slab technology. It is a commitment to providing more room for play for people, in the scopes and spaces in which they live and work.
