Groundbreaking for QUBES
Munich, January 08, 2018 – There's something going on at the Technologie Campus in Munich: Heavy construction machinery has appeared on the site in Agnes-Pockels-Bogen in Nymphenburg, carefully excavating the ground to plan. The soil has been broken for ROSA-ALSCHER Group's QUBES project. Now months of intensive construction work are to follow for a state-of-the-art office complex on a site that is currently still unattractive. This office complex will further strengthen Munich as a location for technological innovation.
"A highly complex excavation site"
Currently the excavation work is running at full speed involving two powerful 50-ton tracked excavators and one wheel loader that are continuously digging their way into the ground. A total of 65,000 m3 of soil need to be removed, which is the equivalent of 120,000 tons of excavated soil. Approximately 4,000 trips with the semitrailer will be necessary to transport the dug-out soil away. From January, a drill of almost 30 meters height and 140 tons weight will lower approx. 8,000 m2 of bored pile wall up to 24 meters down into the excavated site. Worldwide, there are only two types of these impressive special machines. The model used by the Rosa-ALSCHER Group was brought to Munich from Montenegro especially and was even given a police escort. The figures give us a good impression of the dimensions involved in the QUBES project. "We are using a special Mixed Place procedure here," explains Dr. Alexander Rosa-Alscher, head of the company. "The work on the excavation site is highly complex and will take six months, until July 2018." Completion of QUBES is expected for the first quarter of 2020.
Five prominent cubes with 50 rental units
Where a huge hole is now gaping, five interlinked buildings will later rise in their characteristic shape, which gave QUBES its name. The sophisticated, aesthetic design and the clearly structured architecture will not only be an eye catcher for passers-by: The building complex offers space for up to 50 rental units, just under 24,000 m2 in total. In all, it consists of two basements, the ground floor and four upper levels. The upper levels serve as office space, while the ground level will be home to the reception area as well as two restaurants. The basement is due to provide parking space for 369 vehicles.
A working environment of the highest standards
The visually appealing cube-shaped buildings will be thread in one line on the Technologie Campus and be in close vicinity to the BMW headquarters, the Munich Technology Centre and other company headquarters. There will be direct access to public transport. What makes QUBES so attractive to technology brands is the structure of the building that enables the tenants to form networks. The functional building can be used as single-tenant as well as multi-tenant property. The work environment offers the highest standards for a modern office building: terraces and winter gardens for a relaxed atmosphere with light-flooded office space, high-quality fittings and fixtures, as well as sophisticated air conditioning.
The Rosa-Alscher Group
In recent decades the Rosa-Alscher Group (www.rosa-alscher-gruppe.de) and its projects have shaped and influenced the Munich cityscape. SAM Architekturbüro and SAM Plantech GmbH both belong to the group and are responsible for the realization of projects. For the company founder a distinctive architectural style that defines its surroundings and incorporates high construction standards was of paramount importance. Important projects developed by the Rosa-Alscher Group include the Neue Messe München-Riem, the Arnulfpark, Ackermannbogen and Parkstadt Schwabing. A more recent project is, among others, an extension to the Munich University in Dachauerstrasse.
