The warehouse management specialists at TUP have a brand new passive house campus facility to their name. An extraordinarily energetic structure, the new TUP campus houses a modern working environment.
For the first time, Vollack installed a seasonal latent heat storage system, an intelligent storage medium that utilizes ice to provide heating and cooling and makes the building nearly energy self-sufficient.
Reference project for passive construction.
The campus’s design has made it a reference project for passive construction, drawing experts from around the world. The facility’s 3,600 square meters of usable space feature exposed concrete walls with seamlessly integrated wooden windows and green acoustic module accents. The campus’s individual offices are split into functional cubical areas for archiving, engineering, and service-related activities, and the cafeteria at the heart of the building provides a welcoming space for employees to come together.
In the second construction phase, a two-, partly three-story office building with a gross floor area of 1,750 square meters is being built for the intralogistics specialist TUP, which connects to the certified office passive house realized by Vollack in 2016 through a connecting building. The new building, which will be realized according to the BEG-40 standard, will provide the software manufactory with workstations, meeting and project rooms, technical areas and a cafeteria for more than 80 additional employees in the future. The design concept from the first construction phase is consistently continued here, the facade presents itself in an interesting interplay of materiality and color.
General planning and construction
“This building isn’t simply an office complex, it’s a creative domain - and it will be for future generations as well.”
