- Turnkey construction of a new five-storey building
- Contract value for STRABAG: € 60 million
- End-to-end use of BIM 5D®
The Polish subsidiary of STRABAG SE is constructing a new embassy building in the boulevard Unter den Linden in the centre of Berlin. The client for the approximately € 60 million project is the Public Treasury of the Republic of Poland – Embassy of the Republic of Poland in the Federal Republic of Germany. The work is to be completed in the first quarter of 2023.
The design, construction and subsequent operation of the new building is being realised using the BIM 5D® (Building Information Modelling) method.
“We are delighted to be realising this prestigious project in a prime central location in the German capital. The architecturally ambitious new building will harmonise quite well with its surroundings,” said Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE.
The new five-storey building with a usable area of over 10,000 m² is being built by STRABAG Sp. z o.o. on an approx. 8,500 m² plot of land. The watertight excavation is being carried out by ZÜBLIN Spezialtiefbau GmbH, another member of the STRABAG Group. In addition to offices and rooms for representative purposes, the building will also include an underground car park, planted rooftop terraces, two inner courtyards and an atrium. Large windows and a bright façade will define the building’s street-side appearance. The new embassy building was designed by the Warsaw-based architectural firm JEMS Architekci sp. z o.o.
The Polish Embassy had already occupied the site on which the new building is now being built from 1990 to 2014. Since the demolition of the old building in 2016, the embassy has been housed at an interim site in Berlin’s Grunewald district.
