Trauma research is one of Ulm University’s strategic development areas – and a new research building for Multidimensional Trauma Sciences (MTS) is currently being built on the university campus. From 2024, medical and natural science researchers will be able to pool their expertise in the new building and further explore the body’s response and regeneration following trauma.

The cube-shaped building is being built next to the Center for Clinical Research in Science Park I. The five levels with a gross floor area of some 5,400 square meters will have rooms for imaging technology, highly specialized biomedical laboratories for computer simulations, a biobank for blood and tissue samples, and a clinical study center. The special challenges of the project include tailoring the building precisely to the researchers’ requirements and ensuring the highest level of precision during realization, given the sensitive nature of the work to be done there.

The Drees & Sommer Construction Management team is tasked with site supervision for the construction project, and is using Lean Site Management to ensure transparent and stable planning and execution processes for all parties involved in construction. Balancing the workloads of individual trades and synchronizing processes will ensure optimal execution.
