The construction of this complex in Mannheim continued Drees & Sommer’s long-standing customer relationship with SV SparkassenVersicherung. A twelve-storey office building and an apartment block with 77 units were built in the Glückstein district. Drees & Sommer supported the entire process: The experts helped with the site search and selection of a suitable construction partner, and subsequently provided comprehensive management services for the construction project right through to the move-in.

In the course of numerous intensive workshops with the users, the Drees & Sommer specialists defined the project requirements as part of the Planning & Construction execution model. They then coordinated the results with the project developer and the client’s decision-makers. A Functional Specification was then drawn up based on the outcomes.

In addition to project management at management level via the interface to the project developer and marketing, the team undertook user project management for the entire project. Drees & Sommer coordinated the numerous project participants, including the various SV user subproject managers, members of the works council and specialists for occupational health and safety. The key challenge was the tight schedule, as the existing building could only be operated for a short time due to inadequate fire protection measures.
