No other company has built as many Passive Houses as the ABG Frankfurt Holding. Soon, the staff of this housing and real estate firm will also benefit from the advantages of the Standard: on Monday, ground was broken for the new company headquarters. The 12,400 square metres of office space will be located on prime property set between Frankfurt’s financial district and conference centre, adjacent to an eight storey apartment building, also in Passive House Standard. The complex, being executed by owner and project developer Groß & Partner, is set to be completed by the end of 2014.
The cornerstone was laid by ABG CEO Frank Junker und building owner Jürgen Groß along with Fankfurt mayor, Peter Feldmann, who also serves as chair of the AGB Supervisory Council. During the ceremony, Feldmann emphasised not only the significance of this new build for the development of the surrounding neighbourhood, but also for its excellent level of energy efficiency. “The project is among the largest Passive House office buildings currently under construction worldwide. As such, both the owner and renter serve as role models,” observed Martin Such from Passivhausdienstleistung GmbH (Passive House Services), the Darmstadt firm responsible for the Passive House certification of the building.
