Ronski + Burke has been commissioned to investigate and analyze the structure and technical building condition of two senior citizen residential buildings in Leipzig – one of which is listed as a historically protected building.  The survey results of Phase I provide the client with the proposed building improvements that will modernize the buildings for decades to come.

For the upcoming Phase II, the proposed building improvements are to be awarded, planned, and supervised.

Feasibility Study Primary School

Feasibility study primary school in Berlin nearing completion. In addition to an existing variant, we have developed and proposed a second new building variant that meets the requirements of the school, the model room program of the Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family, Berlin, and the development plan. Both variants meet the sustainability targets according to BNB.

Our solution provides a logical compact form with three interconnected distinct elements. We also propose the use of roofscapes. The teaching block has extensive solar panels. The faculty block has a school garden. The sports block has a play area.
