Evaluation of new office location for EBP in Berlin Mitte

EBP carried out an evaluation of a piece of property in Berlin Mitte to establish a basis for making a decision on whether to purchase the property. The results of the evaluation, which centred on building-use options and the risks and opportunities associated with the location, were outlined in a report.

EBP is looking to relocate its offices from Potsdam to Berlin. The plan is to find a site for a new building that sets new standards in terms of sustainable development and appropriately reflects the philosophy of the enterprise. The focus of interest is a piece of property in Berlin Mitte. An evaluation of the site and possible building-design and space utilisation options was carried out to establish a basis for making a decision on whether to purchase the property. Possible technical and economic risks were also evaluated.

The following factors were examined and compiled in a site-evaluation report: 

  • Legal considerations relating to purchase and development
  • Space-utilisation options and forms of office organisation
  • Design options
  • Geology, possible site contamination, noise exposure
  • Design and technical implementation
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Project organisation and execution
