Structural Fire Protection
The construction work of the „Redevelopment of the technical infrastructure II“ on the site of the science campus of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft is finished. Currenly, the third phase will be planned and realized by Kai Otto Architekten.
Concerning the energetic and fire protecting demands these building parts of the research building are mainly in their original condition from 1970 when the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry and Max-Planck-Institute for Neurobiology was built. The emphasize on this planning are put on renewals regarding to fire protection of the construction as well as technical installation and equipment.
Further construction planning are including the supply of operational safety and energetic redevelopment of major defects. For example all windows with easy glazing were replaced by triple glazing.
The structural fire protection can be classified in different levels:
Priority 1: To ensure the vertical emergency route (necessary staircases) with safe access into open air.
Priority 2: To ensure the horizontal emergency route out of recreation rooms into the basement level e.g. accessible by an outside emergency staircase.
Priority 3: To ensure the horizontal emergency route in the upper levels.
