The innovative company BITZER in Sindelfingen had two important occasions to celebrate in September 2019. In addition to its 85th anniversary, the specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology held the opening of its new headquarters at the traditional Sindelfingen site.
Reaching 75 metres, the openly designed, 17-storey tower is the tallest building in this Swabian region. Up to 500 modern and communicatively arranged workplaces are spread over approx. 20,000 sqm. The lower two-storey base building accommodates the reception and meeting rooms, a staff restaurant and the BITZER showroom – an extensive exhibition area on the history and today of the corporate group.
Designed to aesthetic perfection, the seven self-supporting sculptural staircases of identical construction represent the traditional and also innovative character of the new headquarters. The sculptural staircases complement the meeting zones on the various floors of the high-rise building and are also visible from the outside as a prominent eye-catcher. The balustrade stringer stairs in elegant white were installed in the shell of the building in one piece over the open roof. According to the construction stages, the individual staircases were lifted into the building with the help of a construction crane and subsequently aligned by the MetallArt experts and installed with the most sophisticated assembly technology.
