Ready for tomorrow
times three.

#1 Go green – green building.

grasblau is a green building which has been developed using a holistic sustainability approach.

More sustainable, resource-friendlier operations

  • Thanks to the connection to the existing district heating network, the most modern heating and cooling technology, the recovery of energy as well as optimised operations through digitalisation, the future standards for primary energy consumption according to the German Buildings Energy Act (GEG) can be met and even significantly exceeded
  • The sole use of green power and the signing of green leases, whereby landlords and tenants agree to act sustainably

Sustainable materials

  • Only materials not harmful to health and environmentally friendly are used
  • Avoidance of composite material in terms of the circular economy (cradle-to-cradle)

Green mobility

  • Electric vehicle charging stations are available for the users of the building

Certification

  • DGNB Gold is aimed for

Green areas and species conservation

  • Around 70 per cent of the trees will remain on the property, particularly the plane and maple trees
  • The newly created green areas will feature a highly diverse selection of regional flora – to protect and conserve biodiversity
  • To protect insects and avoid light pollution, only directional lighting via lighting posts and path lamps is used in the outdoor area
  • Rainwater on the built areas is collected and fed back into the groundwater instead of going into the sewage system

#2 Keep the balance – well-being

grasblau creates healthy and attractive working conditions.

Healthy workplace

  • Low-pollution materials and high-quality heating and cooling systems ensure a building that is not harmful to health
  • Atrium flooded with daylight animates visitors to use the stairs
  • Large balconies of up to 70 m² in size on all floors enable users to work outdoors
  • Openable windows as a source of fresh air
  • Users of the building have access to covered bicycle racks as well as showers
  • Very good connection to the bicycle path network
  • CO2 sensors in the meeting rooms
  • Comprehensive digitalisation concept makes the stay in the building even safer and healthier (see #3)

Green surroundings

  • Ceiling height, openable windows with a view of the park-like surroundings
  • Numerous parks and the Landwehr Canal as local recreation area in the immediate vicinity

Certification

  • Certification according to WELL Core & Shell Standard is aimed for

#3 Move forward – Smart Commercial Building

grasblau consistently leverages the opportunities of digital technology.

Smart building services

  • Sustainable and resource-friendly operation of the building thanks to digital and networked sensors

API interface

  • Standardised access to the digital building data for the use of dashboards and building apps

Multi-device building app

  • Contactless access to the building via smartphone
  • Internal digital management of access points with the option to give door, person and time-specific access rights
  • Booking and management of workplaces, office and conference rooms, as well as parking places
  • Connection to software systems (e.g. Office 365) possible
  • Utilisation analysis through the use of anonymised room occupancy data capture
  • Push messages to employees, such as to announce the overutilisation of a room or when distance rules are not followed
  • Ticketing system, for instance for needs-based cleaning
  • Additional digital virus guard solutions for safe, pandemic-suitable office operations at all time
  • Dashboard for individual energy management and day-by-day reporting to support sustainability goals

Mobile coverage
