Ground-breaking ceremony for LUBW in Karlsruhe

LUBW Landesanstalt für Umwelt Baden-Württemberg (Baden-Württemberg State Institute for the Environment) in Karlsruhe is to be expanded with two new buildings. Over 500 employees will work at the Großoberfeld location from 2024. The ground-breaking ceremony was held on November 23.

The LUBW extension is divided into a laboratory building and a comb-shaped office building. The two three-storey buildings are connected to each other and to the existing building via glazed walkways. The architectural theme of the existing building is formally extended and systematically complemented to form a new ensemble.

The aim is to achieve silver certification in accordance with the Bewertungssystem Nachhaltiges Bauen BNB (Sustainable Building Assessment System). The façade of the planned new laboratory building will be equipped with photovoltaic panels with a surface area of 880 m² and a capacity of around 260 kilowatts peak (KWp). There are plans to renovate and convert the existing building as soon as the new buildings are completed. The state is investing a total of around 67.4 million euros in the location Großoberfeld, and the new buildings are scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
