The single-storey central workshop on the Max Planck premises in Martinsried was reconstructed and refurbished in terms of energy efficiency and fire protection. In order to create suitable spaces for a CNC milling machine as well as offices for the workshop staff, the rooms of the tinman's shop and the locksmith's shop had to be restructured. For this purpose, they were dismantled except for the building shell. The floor slab was upgraded for bearing the load of the CNC milling machine, and the facade insulation was installed on the inside. The appearance of the building had to be preserved. The windows were replaced by triple-glazed tilt and turn windows, the distinctive shed roofs were insulated, new skylights were installed and the doors were replaced in accordance with fire protection requirements.
