The existing office buildings on Adalperostraße 82, 84 und 86 are being renovated.  In the course of the renovation, the stairwell at the west side of section 1 is being significantly changed. Because of the high proportion of glazing, there is a risk of over-heating. 

In addition, existing glazing on the ground floor of section 1 is being retained.  As a result, there is a risk of high temperatures in summer in this part of the property.

Design needs to meet the requirements of DIN 4108-2 were set down.  In addition, air flow simulations were used to assess the need for cross-ventilation.

Simulation was used to identify measures that deliver comfortable summer temperatures in the office building.
