Company Information

Vienna - STRABAG, the European-based technology group for construction services,
through its Danish subsidiary ZÜBLIN A/S, has signed another turnkey contract
for the construction of a building ensemble in the Carlsberg neighbourhood of
Copenhagen. After the contract for the Dahlerup Tower that was awarded earlier
this year, this is the second major contract that ZÜBLIN is building on behalf
of Carlsberg Byen on the former brewery site in Copenhagen's Valby district. The
new project, with a floor area of 49,000 m², is expected to be completed in 2021
following the cutting of the sod later this year. The total value of the two
contracts is more than DKK 1.2 billion (EUR 161 million).

Earlier this year, ZÜBLIN and Carlsberg Byen cut the first sod on the 80-metre
Dahlerup Tower and a connecting block of houses. The newly signed contract
covers the construction of another tower block also with a height of 80 metres
including two connecting buildings. The buildings - Vogelius Tower, Kjeldahl
House and Djørup House - comprise housing, offices and an underground car park.

The project has been designed and planned in close cooperation between the
client Carlsberg Byen and a team consisting of ZÜBLIN, Schmidt Hammer Lassen
Architects, Entasis and COWI. The cooperation is based on Carlsberg Byen's
collaborative model, which, like the ZÜBLIN teamconcept partnering model,
focuses on the early involvement of all project partners in a two-phase contract
divided into a preconstruction and construction phase.

It is Carlsberg Byen's vision to further the digital development in the
construction industry. Digital tools have also long since become an integrated
part of the project development work at STRABAG Group.

"Digitalisation is one of our main strategic focus areas," says Thomas Birtel,
CEO of STRABAG SE. "We work not only with 3D models but expand them through a
fourth and fifth dimension - the time and the costs. In this project in
Copenhagen, changes made to the structural model, for instance, are also updated
automatically in our calculations. At the same time, virtual reality and laser
scanning using drones are of increasing importance in our projects." The STRABAG
Group understands this, and more, to be covered by the term BIM.5D®.
