The new head office of DB subsidiary Schenker at Kruppstraße 4-6 was inaugurat-ed in May 2016 by handing over the keys to Deutsche Bahn, the long-term tenant of the property, from the hands of Kölbl Kruse and WealthCap. On behalf of DB Im-mobilien, aib has carried out the entire occupancy and furnishing planning for the new headquarters of Schenker AG.


aib supported Deutsche Bahn AG in the implementation of DB’s own office concept. Besides the occupancy and furnishing planning for the entire building and assistance in the context of the procurement process for the furnishing, aib  advised DB architecturally in shaping its future working world. aib took over the communicative support for the planning and realisation process.







The building has a total rented space of approx. 19,000 m². Office space for approx. 900 employees, a canteen and a conference area were built on 8 storeys above ground. Two basement floors contain ancillary and technical rooms as well as car parking. By merging presently 8 sites at the centrally situated new Head Office of Schenker AG, the communication and collaboration among the various DB organisation units will be improved substantially.
