Brain Box Berlin
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control on 8 floors with around 24,000 square metres of flexibly usable spaces for offices, production facilities and start-ups.
Renovating and expanding with technology from Uponor
Berlin's Adlershof district is home to six science faculties of the Humboldt University in Berlin, numerous federal research institutions and the technology centres operated by state body WISTA Management GmbH (“Stadt für Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Medien - City of Science, Business and Media”). This makes Adlershof Germany's leading science hub and one of the 15 largest science parks in the world.
Heating and cooling surfaces from Uponor enable flexible room design
The new BRAIN BOX BERLIN is an innovative campus with spaces conceived with flexibility in mind, open courtyards, underground parking, charging stations for electric vehicles and lockable bike storage. The eight-storey tower to the east of the site establishes the facility as a landmark site. The eighth floor can be used as a sky bar and lounge area. The curving office complex consists of three components with four or five floors and enables different concepts for workplace configuration: cellular offices, co-working areas or open spaces. The smallest unit measures just under 200 square metres, while a complete floor offers about 3,000 square metres of space.
Thermal concrete core activation from Uponor
Modern building temperature control is a highlight of high-quality, ultra-modern building equipment. thermal concrete core activation on an area measuring approx. 20,000 square metres with around 90,000 m of integrated Uponor Magna Pipe PLUS PE-Xa pipes transform the ceilings of the rooms into heating and cooling surfaces that operate efficiently and sustainably, providing pleasant temperatures in the rooms throughout the year – providing a comfortable climate in which to develop new ideas!
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.

La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
