Leitradlofts, Cologne

The conversion of industrial buildings is always a particular challenge. The task for the Leitradlofts in Cologne was to build up a variable heat and drinking water supply system for 52 office units in a former marine propeller factory. Home stations in combination with the loop-through ring installation ensure optimal hygiene and high comfort. In addition, the newly erected pellet local heating central plant was connected through the very flexible Ecoflex piping system.

Modern building complex with industry character 

The Leitradlofts is an architecturally and constructionally ambitious project that entails the complete gutting of an old marine propeller factory that had been standing empty for more than 20 years. Step-by-step, a modern building complex with 12,000 m² of office space will arise as a type of factory for the creative economy. The first construction phase encompasses a total of 52 units covering four floor levels. These can be combined flexibly into office landscapes ranging from 95 m² to a maximum of 2,400 m² size. 

 

Impeccable hygiene through home stations and loop-through ring installation

To ensure optimal drinking water hygiene every unit was equipped with a separate home station. This ensures fresh hot water provision directly on site as needed. Furthermore central hot water and circulation lines in the supply shafts are not required. The sanitary facilities with two toilet rooms and one kitchen per unit were connected by means of the loop-through ring installation. This means that every tapping point receives its water through the ring from two sides, so that stagnations in the lines can be avoided reliably. In addition, further consumers can be included simply and flexibly if required. 

 

Economical installation with Uni Pipe PLUS and RTM Fittings 

The loop-through ring installation in the 52 units and the connection of the radiators were carried out throughout with the pre-insulated multi-layer composite piping Uni Pipe PLUS. This is characterized by its narrow bending radii as well as high form stability. The pipe connections are realized with the RTM-Fittings with integrated press functions, without requiring tools, thus allowing rapid and reliable processing. This made it possible to lay about 12 kilometers of composite piping without a single classic mechanically pressed connection – thus reducing the required installation time by approximately 90 working days.  

 

Local heating network with very flexible Ecoflex pipes 

The Leitradlofts are supplied completely with regenerative heat. Since the complete area does not have a basement, a separate central heating plant with two 200 kW pellet boilers was erected to this purpose. This also meant that about 400 meters of local heating pipes had to be laid between old foundations and the remaining steel and concrete supports. Here the Ecoflex piping system can exploit its high flexibility to the full extent. Although the pipes themselves are very robust, the pre-insulated pipes could be laid rapidly and simply through core drillings and also around corners with narrow radii.

Day-care centre to be built with energy piles

Day-care centre to be built with energy piles

As requested by the City of Vantaa, the Vaaralanpuisto day-care centre has been planned based on the "nearly 0 energy days" concept. Construction work for the day-care centre began in late summer 2016, and the project will be completed in July 2017. Project costs are estimated at EUR 5.4 million, and the day-care centre will accommodate about 130 children. Among the various energy production options available for the site, the City of Vantaa chose the energy pile and solar thermal collector system jointly developed by Uponor and Ruukki.

First Uponor Comfort Panel project in Hungary

An office building, where proper comfort is provided for doing your job The commercial buildings provide more or less limited space as the workplace for people. Therefore cooling the air is an important factor in maintaining their comfort during their stay. In order to keep the daily work undisturbed, the system used should be installed easily, should be efficient economically, and should be hygienic.

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

Deichman is equipped with Thermally Active Building System - a system for storing the energy in the concrete ceiling. It is primarily a cooling system, but it can also be used as a heating system. When in cooling mode, no energy is used as the heat is drawn into the concrete, only when it is transferred from the concrete and into the water pipes that are cast in the decking. The need for installed power is reduced, and operating expenses are significantly reduced as opposed to in a air-based cooling system. The TABS is cast into the Prefab elements, which is a BubbleDeck construction with spans up to 10.5 meters.
