Company Information

Vienna/Dresden - Design and construction from a single source: STRABAG
subsidiary ZÜBLIN and Dreßler Bau GmbH are working together as management
contractors in a consortium to realise the new public administration
headquarters in the heart of Dresden. The design-and-build contract, which will
leave its mark on the Dresden cityscape, was awarded by Kommunale Immobilien
Dresden GmbH & Co. KG with a fixed lump sum price of EUR 116 million. The
project is based on a design by the architectural firms Barcode Architects
(Rotterdam) and Tchoban Voss Architekten (Hamburg/Dresden). The contract has now
been ceremoniously signed and the consortium of ZÜBLIN (66 %) and Dreßler Bau
(34 %) will begin realising the striking 33 metre administration building at
Ferdinandplatz scheduled for completion within a period of about four years. The
detailed design phase is currently underway, to be followed by a three-year
construction period from spring 2022 until late March 2025. The project will be
preceded by archaeological excavations commissioned by the city of Dresden. The
preparation of the excavation pit will be put out to tender separately.

"We are proud that, together with our partners, we were able to prevail in the
competition for this prestigious project and that the city of Dresden has chosen
to place its trust in ZÜBLIN's expertise starting already with the building
design. It is an honour to have been awarded this new design-and-build contract
for such an architecturally challenging building, one which will play a decisive
role in shaping Dresden's cityscape in the future," says Thomas Birtel, CEO of

Central office for citizen services
The new public administration centre will have a gross floor area of 33,500 m²
distributed over seven above-ground floors with an asymmetrical floor plan and
two underground parking levels. The city plans to consolidate several offices
currently scattered around Dresden at one easily accessible, central location.
This will provide citizens with a central office and short distances for
property matters, building permits or issues concerning mobility and climate
protection. The Economic Development Department and the Lost Property Office
will also move into the new building. The new facility will be a workplace for
around 1,350 city employees on an above-ground floor space of 16,700 m².

Open entrance area planned as a community space
The new administration building will feature a striking, three-part façade with
colourfully contrasting upper floors and large expanses of glass on the two
lower levels, providing a strong visual contrast to the light limestone grid
characterising the central part of the building. A particularly eye-catching
feature is a central opening in the façade, like a large window looking onto the
town hall opposite the new building. Two large, green inner courtyards are
planned to create a light atmosphere on the office floors by breaking up the
compact structure of the building. The flat roof will be extensively landscaped
as part of the sustainability concept.

The greatest challenge for the project team, according to construction manager
Frank Hübner from ZÜBLIN's Saxony Business Unit, is the implementation of the
elaborate and spacious entrance area extending over two levels. The foyer,
featuring wood, natural stone, an open staircase and extensive glass, was
designed as a "living room for the city" and a meeting place for citizens and
the public administration. A restaurant with a terrace and an espresso bar are
also included in order to emphasise the welcoming character of the building. The
five upper office floors can be flexibly designed as open workspaces with team
areas or as classic offices. The underground car park in the two basement levels
will offer parking spaces for cars and bicycles.
