The building unit D at the Max-Planck-Site in Martinsried has been completely redeveloped and modified into new utilization. The ground level and upper floor with its laboratories were deconstructed to its roots. The entire building has been restructured regarding its energetic and fire protection technology.

In the basement there has been installed the data centre of the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry. For this reason the existing supply air units in the basement were combined with the exhaust air units on the roof. On this new roof there has been realized an additional construction for a technical centre which is realized later on. On the first floor a required clean room with classification of 10.000 has been built. Concerning the energetic redevelopment the sliding windows have been replaced by new equal-sized windows with triple-glazing and a heat transition coefficient of 1,1.

The aim is to keep the visual appearance of the exposed concrete façade including the concrete balconies. For that reason the insulation has been positioned on the inside of the wall.

The result was bright and pleasant lighting in the offices and the laboratories with newest technology!
