New STUVA headquarters close to completion

On 10 October 2018, the STUVA Executive Board visited the new headquarters building in Cologne at its autumn meeting and thoroughly put it through its paces. The opinion gained on the new building was unanimously positive: After the start of construction in November 2017, a modern building was erected in just one year next to the old STUVA headquarters, which will be an excellent home for employees, customers and guests for many years to come.

The freshly erected building on Mathias-Brüggen-Straße in Cologne will meet the requirements of the future for decades to come, consistently oriented towards STUVA's constantly growing tasks and goals. Around 1,000 square metres of office space have been created directly next to the old STUVA building. Floor-to-ceiling glass fronts, high ceilings and an open, communicative room layout will ensure an excellent working climate.

The technical equipment of the new STUVA headquarters, which is of course completely barrier-free, leaves nothing to be desired. In the new building alone, around 18 kilometres of cable were laid. STUVA relies on innovative heating and cooling sails for the air-conditioning of the building, which float freely in the room and always provide a pleasant room climate as well as good room acoustics. The new conference area, which occupies a large part of the ground floor, will not only be used for conferences, but also for larger seminars and workshops. After all, the new large conference room alone, which is peppered with the finest communication technology, has an area of approx. 100 m².

In January 2019 it will hopefully be time for the employees to pack their boxes and move from the old building, which has been STUVA's home since 1977, to the neighbouring new building.

STUVA is very pleased to welcome you as a customer or research partner to its new headquarters in the near future.
