A Residential Tower from the 1960s in Berlin-Neukölln is to be Extensively Refurbished

A residential tower from the 1960s in Berlin-Neukölln is to be extensively refurbished. The tower shell has never been renewed before. There is spalling on parts of the façade and corrosion. Individual flats have only been modernised sporadically by tenants in recent years. RBA is commissioned to present a comprehensive investigation report of the damage, possible measures and costs. The investigation includes structural parts, building contaminants, building services, energy efficiency investigations and general building & construction. In subsequent phases and years, the entire building is to be thoroughly refurbished in occupied condition.

Senior Citizen Residential Buildings in Leipzig

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. In addition to updating the heating, electric, sewage, roof, windows, and façade, the recommended alterations include the creation of more single-rooms, the development of barrier-free mobility though out the buildings, up-to-date bathroom facilities and a comprehensive fire protection concept. 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.
