PORR builds airport hotel at BER Berlin Brandenburg

A new airport hotel under the Ramada Encore by Wyndham brand is being built at the capital's BER Berlin Brandenburg Airport in Schönefeld.

The special civil engineering works are being carried out by PORR special civil engineering.

The new airport hotel with four upper floors will have 271 rooms on a gross floor area of approx. 16,763 m2. 193 car parking spaces in two basement levels complete the building. The construction project is located in the immediate vicinity of the Waßmannsdorf S-Bahn station, the last stop before BER Airport. With the S-Bahn just a few steps away, hotel guests can travel directly to the BER terminal. This makes the hotel a comfortable place to stay for travellers looking for short distances.

Lean management for adherence to quality, costs and deadlines

The central requirements for the new building are adherence to the cost and schedule plan as well as the implementation of the hotel operator's standards. The consistent application of Lean Management methods throughout the planning and construction process ensures cost transparency, schedule reliability and the high quality desired by the customer.

Experience with challenging hotel projects

"We bring our wealth of experience to the realisation of the project. The construction of the trough excavation pit with two basement levels is very demanding. With PORR Special Civil Engineering, we have the necessary expertise at our side to realise the project safely and economically," says Andreas Kimling, Technical Branch Manager of Building Construction Regional Manager East, about the new contract. With the construction of the Steigenberger Am Kanzleramt hotel, PORR has already proven its ability to realise challenging hotel projects.
