50Hertz Netzquartier New Building

For four and a half years, Drees & Sommer supported transmission network operator 50Hertz on the path to a futureproof headquarters building. During this period, the 50 Netzquartier building in the center of Berlin has become an eye-catcher in the future Europacity district. The innovative building sets new standards in terms of sustainability, employee orientation and failsafe operation.

Additional value

  • For the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), the award to the 50Hertz Netzquartier represents a milestone in its Green Buildingcertification system, because the Diamond award for the first time recognizes a building for design and architectural excellence in addition to outstanding economic, ecological and social qualities.
