- Energy efficient: The new headquarters will enable the Bank to reduce its energy consumption by approximately 50 per cent as compared to the old building. The special design of outdoor areas and open spaces will reduce CO₂emissions, while photovoltaic systems installed on the entire façade and on part of the roof will improve the building’s energy performance even further.
- Environmentally friendly: When demolishing the old building, Berlin Hyp took care to recycle and dispose of all materials in an environmentally friendly manner. For example, the majority of small office furniture, materials and equipment from the building that were no longer needed were donated or auctioned off and were therefore put to further use. Berlin Hyp has received pre-certification in platinum for its entire building deconstruction project from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
- Modern: Berlin Hyp employees can look forward to state-of-the art workstations and a modern working environment that promotes creativity and collaboration.
- Open: Berlin Hyp will open up the new building to the public and will make selected spaces available for art exhibitions and other events.
- Participatory: Thanks to a broad approach which encourages participation, the Bank’s employees can get actively involved in the formation of the new building.
Berlin Hyp is aiming to obtain DGNB platinum certification for the new headquarters as well.
