- Turnkey construction of custom-built office and production buildings on an approx. 17,000 m² site
- Future headquarters of ZÜBLIN Environmental Technology; joint use with STRABAG Lining Technology and STRABAG BMTI
- Contract value: € 17 million
The cornerstone was laid today for the construction of a new corporate location for the STRABAG Group in Markgröningen north of Stuttgart in a ceremony attended by official representatives from the town of Markgröningen and the district of Ludwigsburg as well as by employees from the respective corporate entities and members of the local press. Upon completion in the spring of 2020, the new office and production buildings will house the headquarters and plant production facilities of ZÜBLIN Environmental Technology, which will share the site with STRABAG Lining Technology and a unit of STRABAG BMTI. A total of around 140 ZÜBLIN and STRABAG employees will work at the site in the future – including about 95 international engineering and technical specialists from ZÜBLIN Environmental Technology.
The approx. 20-month construction project is being carried out by Ed. Züblin AG’s Subdivision Stuttgart as general contractor; project management during the design and build phases will be handled by STRABAG’s real estate division.
New office space and production halls on 17,000 m² site
The approx. 17,000 m² site at Maulbronner Weg in Markgröningen will become home to a three-storey office building with around 2,100 m² of useful area as well as a two-storey factory hall for the production of soil and water treatment plants. The 6,000 m² hall will also comprise workshops for welding, electrical works, pump maintenance and repair as well as storage facilities and common areas for up to 65 employees. A part of this building will be used by the electrical division of the corporate service entity STRABAG BMTI. Also being built is a separate warehouse as a material storage facility for STRABAG Lining Technology. A 9,000 m² paved exterior area will be used to store large water treatment equipment from Environmental Technology as well as containers and cable drums from BMTI. This will also be the site of the loading and transit areas necessary for the equipment handling.
“The new office and production buildings were optimally designed with the work of plant construction in mind,” says Jörn Beckmann, member of the management board at Ed. Züblin AG, on the occasion of the cornerstone ceremony. “In the future, it will also be possible to optimally use synergies between the individual group entities.”
With the move of its headquarters and plant manufacturing to Markgröningen, ZÜBLIN Environmental Technology has come full circle. One of the company’s first projects in the late 1980s was the comprehensive redevelopment of the former Scherwiesen sludge landfill on behalf of the town of Markgröningen.
