    Project data

    Planning: HPP, Düsseldorf

    Start: June 2001

    Completion: October 2006

    Gross area: 14,000 m²     

    Total construction costs: 13.7m. EUR incl. VAT



  • Scope of work

    In order to realise the building works, contractual matters between the investor and the City of Düsseldorf as owner have to be prepared, with reference to the user. The narrowness of the property means that there were dependent processes running contrary to each other, which had to be taken into consideration within the parameters of the given schedule.  


    The reconstruction of the original listed building was constantly accompanied under preservation order conditions. These works are to be carried out during normal school operation.
