Flexible working environments that foster creativity.
The new Tetra Pak working environment features an open interior design that allows for direct and efficient communication while also providing the flexibility needed to adjust to changes in work flows and processes. The cube-shaped, two-story building and its green inner courtyard cover 4,000 square meters. The office spaces can be individually arranged for a variety of functions, whether as open-space work environments, combi-offices, or cubicles, and can accommodate a total of 150 work stations. The building also boasts a range of spaces for meetings, a spacious cafeteria, and a modern conference area, all of which contribute to the opportunities for improved communication and optimized workflows the new structure provides. Last but not least, the new facility also features reserve capacity for future growth — a promising peek into the years to come.

A flagship for aviation in Germany.
With the addition of its new Terminal 2 satellite expansion, Munich airport can now accommodate an additional 11 million passengers per year. The new rod-shaped terminal expansion, which is connected to the existing terminal by means of an underground transport system, features three added passenger levels and a total of more than 52 gates. The addition of 27 aircraft parking spaces located directly next to the terminal expansion more than doubles the number of spaces close to gates serviced by Terminal 2. Designed to be a transfer terminal, the new satellite features passport and security control areas. Vollack’s hall and steel construction unit was tasked with constructing the satellite’s roughly 1,000-meter-long climate facade and central roof. The services provided by Vollack included the static analysis, construction, manufacture, and assembly of roughly 2,500 tons of steel.
“The project’s tight schedule, complex construction conditions, and very high technical and aesthetic demands were no problem for Vollack.”

The warehouse management specialists at Dr. Thomas + Partner have a brand new passive house campus facility to their name. An extraordinarily energetic structure, the new TUP campus houses a modern working environment. For the first time, Vollack installed a seasonal latent heat storage system, an intelligent storage medium that utilizes ice to provide heating and cooling and makes the building nearly energy self-sufficient. The campus’s design has made it a reference project for passive construction, drawing experts from around the world. The facility’s 3,600 square meters of usable space feature exposed concrete walls with seamlessly integrated wooden windows and green acoustic module accents. The campus’s individual offices are split into functional cubical areas for archiving, engineering, and service-related activities, and the cafeteria at the heart of the building provides a welcoming space for employees to come together.

“This building isn’t simply an office complex, it’s a creative domain – and it will be for future generations as well.”
A place for coming together.
The Nahetal Forum is a three-story, 1,500-square-meter building located in Bad Kreuznach. The spaces are flexible, and are harmoniously integrated into the surrounding area. In addition to a bank and insurance office, the Forum also houses extensive medical and therapeutic facilities: a pharmacy on the ground floor, a physiotherapy practice on the second floor, and a specialist medical practice on the third floor. Elevator access to each level provides a barrier-free experience for all visitors. The building’s modern Alucobond facade is combined with a thermal insulation system to create a highly effective blend of aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency.

“Our goal was to create a beautiful building using the language of modern architecture – a functional environment where customers can feel at ease. With the help of our long-time partner Vollack, we were able to truly bring our vision to life.”
The bright new Reha-Zentrum rehabilitation center, situated along the Teltow canal, provides optimal conditions for patients and visitors. The three-story, handicap accessible building was designed to meet the operational and functional demands of modern rehab centers. With roughly 3,000-square-meters of floor space, the new facility provides ample room for treatment and lecture rooms, a sauna and quiet room, a kitchen, and a cafeteria with a terrace facing the canal. A 14-meter-long exercise pool provides a range of therapeutic options unavailable at the center’s previous location, and the 5,600-square-meter facility is also home to an outdoor area featuring an obstacle course for sensorimotor function development.
Dr. phil. Lars Weber, Managing Director of the center for outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation and prevention
“We now have significantly more space and overall better conditions to offer our patients the treatment they need. And the scheduling was perfect — we’re right on time to open the doors to our brand new facility.”
A certified shopping experience.
A sustainable shopping center constructed atop a 50,000-square-meter section of industrial wasteland in Arnstadt with the support of Vollack. The shopping center features a 40-meter-long car wash, two grocery stores, and an electronics retail store covering 5,000 square meters. The center’s state-of-the-art shops are complemented by 400 parking spaces and a variety of attractive outdoor facilities. A plus for the environment: more than 70 percent of the site’s demolition material was recycled and reused. The shopping center also boasts a range of energy-efficient solutions, such as a reversible air-heating pump in the electronics retail store. The project’s sustainable construction was awarded the German Sustainable Building Council’s (DGNB) gold certificate.
Felix Richard Stabernack, Managing Director of MCF Stabernack, the project’s investor
“The ‘i49’ shopping center on Ichterhäuser Strasse is our contribution to a sustainable and growing Arnstadt, Ilm-Kreis, and Thuringia. A true success made possible by the building strategists at Vollack.”

A 9,000-square-meter facility planned for the Autohausgruppe Geisser in Karlsruhe houses Volvo and the traditional British brands Jaguar and Land Rover in separate showrooms. The new facility provides two brand exclusive direct reception areas, 25 garage workstations, a large vehicle parts warehouse, a state-of-the-art car wash (there are only two others like it in Germany), and a cutting edge diagnostics facility. A biological water purification unit ensures the environmentally-friendly recovery and use of waste water, and a 300-square-meter outdoor habitat has been provided for native fauna. The facility is topped off with a spacious customer parking lot featuring energy-saving LED lights and two charging stations for e-cars and hybrids.

New structures for sustainable business development.
An existing two-story building in Korschenbroich formerly used by the fashion brand Mexx, was modernized and converted to accommodate its new tenant, docsellent. The converted facility houses 5,200 square meters of innovative working spaces, which have been custom designed to meet the demands of management and production. The company’s operations have been further optimized by the addition of a 950-square-meter paper warehouse, complete with receiving and shipping areas, constructed atop the property’s former parking lot. In order to provide room for the twelve-meter-long printing machine, the former showroom was custom converted.
Thomas Simon and Philippe Coquelet, Managing Directors of docsellent, the all-round document output service provider
“Together with Vollack, we’ve created a facility that offers our employees, clients, and partners the best possible conditions.”
Advanced think tank.
Exposed concrete, plenty of wood, and state-of-the-art communications technology await clients at Spitzmüller’s Innovation Forum in Baden. Optimally allocating the 5,500-square-meter property to integrate the company’s former facility, built in 1983, with the new structure was a particular challenge for Vollack during the planning phase. Each and every element needed to be perfectly customized to meet the service provider’s needs: individual offices for concentrated work, group work areas for students, communication areas with coffee corners on every floor, and conference rooms and event spaces outfitted with state-of-the-art media technology, kitchen island units, and catering areas. The new addition is topped off by a four-wire system for heating and cooling, concrete core activation, and state-of-the-art heat pump technology combined with an energy management system and photovoltaics, which provide surplus energy (about 50 percent) to a series of specially designed charging stations for the company’s cars.
Rudolf Spitzmüller, Founder and Board Member at Spitzmüller, the innovation and investment promotion specialists
“I see this new addition as a high-tech building with the power to generate new business and inspire not only Spitzmüller employees, but also prospective and current clients and banking partners.”
