Drees & Sommer invites you to an exclusive virtual preview of its new headquarters building OWP 12 in Stuttgart, a pioneering future-proofed building embodying advanced sustainable and technological design.

The building and construction industry is the biggest consumer of raw materials worldwide and producer of enormous quantities of waste. Although energy efficiency, CO2 savings and the use of renewable energy are all on the radar during real estate transactions, in the long-term, it might just be a drop in the ocean as we will be faced with lack of raw materials.

The leading European Consulting, Planning and Project Management company, Drees & Sommer is celebrating its 50th anniversary with future-shaping solutions for successful buildings, high-return portfolios, powerful infrastructure, and liveable cities.

With the future in mind, Drees & Sommer is constructing this energy-plus building in its headquarters. It features an insulated façade, solar panels on the roof and the south wall, geothermal energy and a north façade covered with greenery. The company is using its distinctive expertise to integrate Cradle to Cradle design principles to ensure sustainable use of resources and minimize waste.

A state-of-the-art digital equipment and use of innovative tools like Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Lean Construction Management (LCM), making planning and construction seamless key highlights of the building. 

The building is due for completion in Autumn 2021 and is aimed as a real-life model for companies thinking about the next level of sustainability and technology. After all, if Drees & Sommer is to give its clients advice on how to build digitally, sustainability and efficiently, what could be better than putting its money where its mouth is?
