Trail-blazing building technology – harmonising responsibility with future outlook
The building concept of Lufthansa Aviation Center is aimed at achieving optimum working conditions also under technical aspects. The planning and construction of the building's shell placed stringent demands on energy efficiency. A key element thereby is effective outer and inner (atrium-oriented) sun screening secured by automatic fabric/slat blinds.
The naturally ventilated atriums are also conducive for the internal climate of the highly transparent building. They are an integral element of the overall ecological concept.
Lufthansa Aviation Center is equipped with a thermoactive structural compo-nent system for climate regulation. The reactive system automatically controls the air exchange with ongoing low energy consumption. A self-regulating system feeds air -either heated or cooled – into the offices via air source vents in the floor. The position of the air outlets in the room can be adjusted depending on the location of the workplace. Thanks also to the possibility of direct and individual ventilation via windows, the building provides its occupants with special quality.
