ZÜBLIN building new trivago headquarters for approx. € 81 million

  • Trivago head office being built in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen
  • IMMOFINANZ hired ZÜBLIN as general contractor

Ed. Züblin AG has won a new large order: The subsidiary of STRABAG SE has been hired as general contractor to build the new corporate headquarters of trivago GmbH in the Medienhafen business area of Düsseldorf. The metasearch engine trivago will be the sole tenant of the six-storey building, commissioned by Vienna-based IMMOFINANZ as the first construction section on the property at Kesselstraße. The entire project, including construction design, has a total contract value of about € 81 million. Work has already begun and is scheduled for completion in mid-2018.

The new trivago head office will have enough space for around 2,000 employees. Designed by the architectural firm sop GmbH & Co. KG of Düsseldorf, the office building has a striking kidney-shaped floor plan. A special feature will be the vertical façade with slanted windows. The building faces the water at Medienhafen and forms a spacious campus with a pleasant atmosphere. The design foresees about 30,000 m² of space – thereof 26,000 m² for offices – and more than 500 parking spaces in two underground car parks. The construction pit was the responsibility of Züblin Spezialtiefbau GmbH under a € 6 million contract.
