Stadtwerke München commissioned Kai Otto Architekten to plan the refurbishment of the driver administration building located on the premises of the Bus Depot East that was erected in 1986. The driver administration building was upgraded in terms of energy efficiency according to the latest requirements.
This project also included the energy-efficiency renovation of the facades and windows, an extension of the entrance area, the construction of new escape routes and the installation of shower rooms in the basement as well as the redesign of the ground floor layout in some areas. Furthermore, a thermal insulation composite system was installed for an energy-efficiency upgrade of the building's exterior walls and for preventing thermal loss in winter as well as overheating in summer. In addition, Kai Otto Architekten developed a concept for night-time cooling.
Since all measures had to be carried out while maintaining operations, the replacement of the windows with new ones was always completed in one day so that office operations were affected as little as possible. In order to avoid dust exposure, dust protection walls were set up inside the building during construction.
