Project duration

November 2003 – December 2007

Kreissparkasse Tübingen moved to its new administration building in April 2006. The savings bank can increase its capacity and optimise its operating processes with the new building. The building also meets the standards for ecological future-oriented building.

The building has a completely new climate and façade concept with triple glazing, façade profiles with high thermal insulation properties as well as thermoactive ceilings with edge-strip heating elements that also enhance acoustics. The systems' primary energy requirement for indoor air conditioning is reduced by 68% with this concept: Geothermal energy is obtained via drilled piles for the heating and cooling of the building.
