Topping-out ceremony in Kornwestheim
Rolf Disch Solar Architecture is planning a new workshop for the company “Simantke Renn Tuning” on the former Kreidler site in the town of Kornwestheim with a gross floor area of approximately 2,600 m². High efficiency PV modules (300W) with a storage unit cover the base load of the production hall’s energy demand. Heat is supplied with wood pellets and in the second construction phase by 15 geothermal ground probes. The high-quality wooden façades have electrochromic glazing, which minimizes heat radiation in summer. On August 4, the topping-out ceremony for the first stage of construction was celebrated.
