The new building for the Faculty of Sports and Health Sciences and the Central University Sports of the Technical University of Munich fits with its long-form, 185 meters long and 153 meters wide into Günter Behnisch's masterplan and forms the new, concise address of the faculty and of central university sports. In addition to a usable area of 37,900 square meters, there are around 20 hectares of sports areas, 14 sports halls, 12 lecture halls, 15diagnostic rooms, five workshops, 300 offices, cafeteria and library. The new building is available to the approximately 2,000 students of the faculty plus around 9,000 sports enthusiasts from all Munich universities every week.

The clearly structured wooden building complex is divided into two hall and office clusters, which fit precisely into the surrounding sports areas.

The main entrance is on the first floor. In the east, a footbridge leads from the park directly into the central connection and access axis, which runs through the entire building to the terrace of the cafeteria in the west. Here the view of the new athletics stadium and the entire outdoor area opens up.

Vasko+Partner is responsible for the building services. The energy concept is based on the passive house standard and includes the climate, use and user behavior as well as future social developments. The use of district heating and groundwater for heating and cooling, together with well thought-out technology, ensures an optimal and sustainable energy supply for the building.

Groundwater is used for cooling, the cold of which is distributed via a heat exchanger in the surface heating system. This offers a high level of comfort without having to operate chillers with high power consumption.

With a full-surface underfloor heating, the indoor climate can be regulated in a pleasant and comfortable way all year round. The energy efficiency of the ventilation systems corresponds to the highest standards in order to build and operate the building economically and in a way that conserves resources. Planning the ventilation was a major challenge because the building combines different areas of use with different requirements.

Large amounts of air as quietly as possible, so as not to disturb, transport and bring the lectures into the rooms and at the same time optimize the space required, is a difficult task that Vasko+Partner mastered perfectly.

Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin

The Beuth University plans to move its location to the departure building at the former Berlin Tegel Airport. There will be a campus with daycare center, canteen and library. Agn Niederberghaus & Partner are involved in the ongoing planning for the subsequent use of the airport building, Vasko+Partner is on board as project management. Agn was able to assert itself in theEurope-wide, public procurement procedure and received the general planning contract for the first large BIM project of the Berlin Senate at the beginning of 2017: the subsequent use of the airport building A in Berlin-Tegel.

The open spaces at Terminal A, into which the Beuth University will move, are planned by agn. Surrounded by forest, heath and lake, a research and industrial park for urban technologies is created on the site in the following years: Berlin TXL - The Urban Tech Republic. Up to 1,000 large and small companies with 20,000 employees will research, develop and produce in the UrbanTech Republic. Around 2,400 students from the renowned Beuth University will enliven the former terminal building. Berlin TXL focuses on what keeps the growing metropolises of the 21st century alive: the efficient use of energy, sustainable construction, environmentally friendly mobility, recycling, the networked control of systems, clean water and the use of new materials. BerlinTXL - The Urban Tech Republic is currently a unique project in Europe, if not worldwide.

General renovation of the Parliament, Vienna, Austria

In January 2014, the urgently needed fundamental decision for the sustainable renovation of the parliament building was made. The basis for this was worked out by the project team of the Parliamentary Directorate in close cooperation with the project management provided by Vasko+Partner. It contained a comparison of all decision alternatives as well as a cost statement based on an independent review of the cost estimates of the overall concept drawn up in 2011.

In a two-stage, Europe-wide negotiation process, the bidding consortium Jabornegg & Pálffy_AXIS was commissioned in autumn 2014 with the general planning services. The continuously updated reports on the state of parliament revealed serious shortcomings: in terms of fire protection, evacuation options, accessibility, building stability, building services, glass roofs, roof construction and ultimately the technical lifespan of many of the materials used in the parliament building is far exceeded.

For future planning, the future parliament building will receive the"klimaaktiv GOLD" and "ÖGNB Gold" awards from klimaaktiv and ÖGNB, which were awarded for the first time to a building with particularly high requirements for monument protection.

New Bio Center building, Vienna, Austria

The new biology center of the University of Vienna, planned entirely with BIM, is being built on the approximately 12,000 square meter property along Schlachthausgasse in St. Marx, in Vienna's third district. In the immediate vicinity is the Vienna Biocenter, the largest life sciences cluster in Austria, in which the University of Vienna with the Center for MolecularBiology and the Max F. Perutz Laboratories plays a key role. The architectsMarcel Backhaus and Karsten Liebner were awarded the contract for the new building in the international competition and are now responsible for the new biology center together with Vasko+Partner. Planning is in full swing -construction should be ready for occupancy in spring 2021. Built in reinforced concrete, the bio center, with its clinker brick facade, blends in well with the growing district of St. Marx. A four-storey compact research block with an atrium and a sheltered roof terrace is located on a two-storey base -consisting of five individual "building blocks". The main entrance is diagonally opposite the Vienna Biocenter. The curtained clinker facade gives the university a clear identity and address at this location. Library, teaching, service, cafeteria and administration are located on the basement floors.

The challenges of the project lie on the one hand in the very complex technology, on the other hand in the coordination with the many different authorities - from the labor inspectorate to animal welfare. With the realization of the new biology center of the University of Vienna, one of the most comprehensive life science clusters in Europe is being realized here inVienna.
