THM on track for growth

The building of new laboratories in the campus area on the Gutfleischstraße came about in the context of expansion of study capacities for the Faculty 04 - KMUB of the Technical University Mittelhessen. Laboratories, offices and service spaces are available to teaching staff and students in the three-storey building with the dimensions 22.5 x 17.1 m and a height of 12 m. The constructive grid dimension of 3.6 m and  the storey height of 3.75 m are derived from its use as laboratory. To avoid tremors with frequent use of microscopes, the load-bearing structure was designed as a solid prefabricated reinforced concrete construction.





Modular construction and energy efficiency

With a high degree of prefabrication, this system also allows rapid construction and high economy in use.

Based on a Cabinet Decree of the State Government of Hessen with regard to the energy efficiency of buildings, the standards of the Energy Efficiency Ordinance (EnEV 2009) were bettered by 50%. The cladding of the ventilated facade was realised in large-format laminate panels. hbm and aib were able to hand over the building to the THM on 30.09.2014 after only 8 months of construction time including the laboratory installations.
