The CKW group is the leading energy provider in central Switzerland. The 135m long, three-storey building with its overhanging, sloping front commemorates a large ship. The materials glass, steel and ALUCOBOND® are dominating the exterior. The connecting structure to the existing building was a special challenge with regard to the MINERGIE-P® standard. At the connection of two structures often bears the risk of energy leaking. At the North side the rear-ventilated façade provides protection against the weather. The South side with its balconies and outer sun blinds serves for solar gain of heat and protection against overheating. ------------------------- Die CKW-Gruppe ist die führende Energiedienstleisterin der Zentralschweiz. Der 135 Meter lange, dreigeschossige Bau mit seiner überhängenden, schrägen Stirnseite im Osten erinnert an ein Schiff. Von außen dominieren die Materialien Glas, Stahl und ALUCOBOND®. Der Verbindungsbau zum bestehenden Gebäude war bezüglich MINERGIE-P® eine besondere Herausforderung: Gerade bei diesen Verbindungen kann viel Energie entweichen. Im Norden bietet die hinterlüftete Fassade Schutz vor der Witterung. Im Süden sorgt die Kombination von vorgehängten Balkonen und außenliegendem Sonnenschutz für solaren Wärmegewinn sowie Schutz vor Überhitzung.
