Wolfer & Goebel, an affiliate of Strabag’s Züblin subsidiary, has started construction of a new industrial complex for medical technology firm Erbe Elektromedizi in Rangendingen, Germany.

Located about 70km south of Stuttgart, the new project Erbe 4.i (Individual, instruments, intelligent, international) is being constructed together with joint venture partner SIEGLE+EPPLE.

As per the joint venture arrangement, Wolfer & Goebel Bau is responsible for the construction of the project on the approximately 20.000m² site.

The project is planned for completion in 2023. It will replace the existing building owned by the medical technology company.

The complex will comprise three interconnected building sections each with ground floor and two upper floors. The sections will serve different purposes including a large atrium, logistics and production.

Strabag said that the new building’s focus will be on sustainability in design, construction and operation.

As part of this effort, the building complex will utilise wood and wood-based materials for the façade and as load-bearing elements.

ZÜBLIN Timber is undertaking the timber construction work for the project.

Strabad stated: “The building complex will be one of the first industrial buildings in Germany to meet the high requirements of the KfW Efficiency House standard 40 EE.”

Additionally, the new building will make use of renewable energies, including a high-performance photovoltaic system, to meet the high environmental targets.

Recently, Strabag secured a contract from Skanska Costain STRABAG joint venture (SCS JV), HS2’s main works civils contractor, to produce concrete segments for London tunnels section of HS2.

The contract involves the production of approximately 36,000 precast concrete segments by Strabag.
