Topping-out ceremony of the new BND building in Berlin
The technical and logistics centre houses various functional areas and incorporates goods and transport handling. It also provides access from the north directly to the central axis of the main building. Many of the employees on site will use this access which is convenient to the nearby underground station. Above this entranceway, a car park for employee parking and the BND fleet with some 600 spaces is provided. The complex also includes a power plant and office space for a range of functions.
These three elements are brought together at ground floor level by a continuous base of fair-faced concrete, with natural stone used in the corner building area. Metal facades dominate the upper storeys of the buildings and lend a functional aspect to the logistics centre part of the project. This contrasts with the corner office building, which forms a closed perimeter along the Chausseestraße and has a structured plaster facade.
