After three years of construction, RheinEnergie AG opened its new corporate headquarters in Cologne-Ehrenfeld in June 2014. The utility company has created around 2,000 modern workplaces for its employees in a building complex that is a model of ecological sustainability. In the initial stages of the project, Drees & Sommer experts supported the principal by continuously checking the progress of execution planning. During the construction phase, they checked work against contracts, recording defects and tracking their elimination through to acceptance of the building. The specialists also coordinated all project participants – from the client to specialist engineers. A second construction stage will run until early 2017.
