DGNB Certification in Silver for Theresienhof in Munich

As an auditor, Müller-BBM has supported the DGNB certification procedure

The representative Theresienhof office building has an exclusive location in the center of the City of Munich. Upon completion, the building was awarded the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) certification in silver.

Based on the design (work phases 1 – 4) of the architectural firm msm meyer schmitz-morkramer in Cologne, Munich-based Maier Neuberger Architekten took over as of work phase 5 and created a modern building complex with high-class infrastructure for offices and retail businesses in Munich's district Maxvorstadt. The front building with its natural stone facade along Theresienstraße deliberately emulates the former appearance of the building. The rear building, however, has large glazed ribbon windows and mainly houses office space as well as a commercial unit and a restaurant. In the basement, there is an underground car park.

At Theresienhof, Müller-BBM was responsible for the thermal insulation, energy performance calculation and building climatology as well as for building acoustics and room acoustics; as an auditor, we significantly supported the DGNB certification procedure. In this connection, the selection of suitable materials was particularly important. The executed quality of the building envelope combined with a connection to the district heating network of the "Stadtwerke München" public utility resulted in a high energy efficiency standard of the building. Moreover, acoustically effective cooling ceilings ensure a good thermal and acoustic comfort in the various office spaces.
