The Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has expanded its headquarters with a new office building. The new four-storey building provides 111 new workplaces as well as two medium-sized conference rooms for 50 to 70 people. The building will be completely self-sufficient in renewable energy during operation – thanks to photovoltaics on the façade and roof and a 54 kW heat pump connected to 32 geothermal probes. In addition, environmentally friendly building materials such as recycled concrete and insulation with renewable raw materials were used. The building can therefore serve as a model for other federal buildings.

Müller-BBM Building Solutions was extensively involved right from the concept development stage of the competition process. During the integrative planning process, constructive solutions had to be developed in order to meet the very ambitious requirements. The energy certificates were provided in accordance with the Energy Saving Ordinance and for compliance with the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). The thermal simulations for the atrium and the adjoining offices were a key focus. As part of a "whole-building simulation", the heat and electrical energy requirements for all conditioned rooms were determined over the course of a complete year.
