Refurbishment Graf-Zeppelin-Haus, Friedrichshafen (DE)

The Graf-Zeppelin-Haus was opened in 1985 as the cultural and congress center of the city of Friedrichshafen. Situated directly on the shore of Lake Constance, the center comprises a large hall with 1,300 seats as well as eight smaller conference rooms, a restaurant and a café. After 30 years, extensive renovation work is now due to be carried out in order to provide contemporary comfort for spectators, establish modern safety standards and improve economic efficiency.
We were awarded the contract for the comprehensive renovation of the Graf-Zeppelin-Haus in 2019. The most important measures are the thermal and technical modernisation, the renewal of the catering areas, the improvement of the room acoustics in the event halls and the adaptation of the safety equipment to current standards. All work will be planned and carried out to ensure that operations can be maintained. The entire listed building and thus the original character will be preserved.
