Deutsche Wohnen & PORR celebrate ceiling party for Schützengarten Dresden

Since 2018, PORR Hochbau Region Ost has been realising the turnkey construction of the Schützengarten Dresden residential quarter as general contractor for Deutsche Wohnen. The PORR subsidiary Stump-Franki was responsible for the construction of the excavation pit and excavation pit shoring. 63,902 m2 gross floor area, 36,670 m2 living space, 13 buildings in 3 blocks with a total of 23 stairways - the project management and construction site teams faced numerous challenges in terms of adherence to schedules and budgets as well as logistics simply because of its size. With the help of Lean Construction Management, it is ensured that all deadlines are met with the appropriate quality. On 20 October, the ceiling celebration was celebrated together with the client and the good performance of the construction site team so far was acknowledged.

The Schützengarten Dresden residential quarter with 478 flats, 1,645 m2 of commercial space and three underground car parks will be built on around 19,000 m2 of land by 2024. The site is in a prime inner-city location, adjacent to Könneritzstraße, Laurinstraße, Schützenplatz, Schützengasse and Jahnstraße. The buildings are arranged around three green inner courtyards, and a central neighbourhood square on the site of the historic Schützengarten serves as a green oasis, meeting place and playground.

The project is determined by the idea of sustainability

The Quartier Schützengarten is supported by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) with the aim of achieving DNGB Gold certification. From energy-efficient and mobility-friendly planning to environmentally friendly demolition and resource-saving construction, the idea of sustainability determines the project. Around 80 % of the roof surfaces are equipped with PV systems. More than 50 e-car charging stations and 950 bicycle parking spaces are provided in the underground car parks. In addition, another 70 bicycle parking spaces will be created in the outdoor areas. Before construction could begin, two 8-storey office buildings and the canteen of the former VEB Energiebau Radebeul, including a concrete bunker from the 1980s, had to be demolished. The approximately 4,300 tonnes of concrete parts recovered from the demolition were reused for the construction of the excavation pits and the road construction.

Ceiling celebration marks important milestone

The end of the shell construction was celebrated with the slab festival on 20 October. Representatives of the client, planners, architects, representatives of the authorities, the PORR team and the subcontractors from the shell and finishing work came together for this occasion. The client thanked the construction site team for their outstanding performance. A special feature: the AirMoition flight attraction made it possible to view the construction site from above and invited the participants of the ceiling party to take a flight over the construction site.
