The name says it all. Extensive reconstruction work has given the former old post office in Leipzig a new lease of life. The “Lebendige Haus” features a wide range of possible uses. Spread over around 70,000 square metres of gross floor area, there are 322 Serviced apartments, offices, restaurants, a conference centre, a fitness studio, an underground garage with 366 parking spaces as well as various businesses and shops. Looking at the outside as well, the listed building on Augustusplatz, one of the largest town squares in Germany, is impelling with its special charisma. With an innovative light&sound piece of artwork encompassing the building, which reaches its pinnacle on the glass-fronted 7th floor, the building is highly visible, taking centre stage both inside and out.
Kermi has supplied all the radiators for the apartments. The design radiators have been coated with an additional anti-corrosion layer. The coating makes the radiators particularly robust and therefore makes them suitable for rooms with an increased moisture load, such as bathrooms.

“Changed – unchanged” – that is the way the building complex “MY.O” (short for “My Office”) in the city district Laim in Munich is being seen. The office building with 1,000 work stations over a floor space of 27,000 m2 has been built by CA Immo München Nymphenburg GmbH & Co. KG and is considered to be the new focal point for Munich West. The special feature of MY.O is its unusual architecture with arch-shaped windows, some over two storeys high on both upper and lower floors, as well as the distinctive green colour of the facade. The architecture intentionally mirrors the contours of the industrial buildings from the 19th and early 20th century and pursues these in the partly loft-like, spacious room concept, designed to offer great versatility and a high quality abode. With its strong identity, MY.O makes a statement in the cityscape of Munich West. MY.O also offers numerous bicycle parking spaces, car parks, and charging stations for electric cars.
Kermi convectors have been installed in the offices. This are popular with their quick, effective heat output in front of large areas of glass. Apart from that, therm-x2 Plan radiators, as well as vertical Verteo steel panel radiators have been used.

The Max Bögl Group is an international construction company with its headquarters in Sengenthal near Neumarkt in Bavaria. Over the next few years, a campus is being created at the headquarters with office buildings, a technology centre, as well as a range of community facilities. The first four-storey building has been in use since August 2019 and with its open office space, creates opportunities for creative and communicative work. The other buildings will connect via a pedestrian axis which is part of an overarching open-space concept.
Kermi supplied panel temperature control over a surface area of a good 3000 square metres for this modern spatial concept. An additional manufacturing and servicing building on the site has also been fitted with around 2000 square metres of panel heating, including the connection system x-net connect plus. The combination with this system facilitates single room control with thermal insulation and increased sound insulation which complies with German Energy Conservation Regulations (EnEV).

Anyone driving past the industrial zone Gilching Süd will not be able to pass the working & living HOUSE without glancing with admiration at the striking building.
The distinctive, virtually cube-shaped building was constructed in two building phases (2015 and 2019). The building has approx. 6,600 m² floorspace distributed over three floors. There are now 17 companies in the commercial property with approx. 300 employees. Four different spatial concepts ensure it is a space with flexible uses. The office areas can be adapted on a modular basis to a size between 50 m² and 1,500 m².
Kermi supplied the heat supply components for this special concept. The elegant anthracite grey of the Verteo vertical steel panel radiators and convectors with a radiation shield ideally complement the modern design of the building.

In 2013, the energy efficiency of the residential and commercial building "am Thomaseck" in Erfurt was modernised. With its great position adjacent to the "City-Haus" in the town centre of Erfurt, the architectural complex with twelve residential and commercial units is extremely advantageous for both residents and entrepreneurs.
Real I.S. AG Gesellschaft für Immobilien Asset management took on the management of implementing the construction project for the owner "Bayernfonds Immobilien City Investition Objekte Erfurt und Jena KG". The project company was faced with the task here of converting the existing one-pipe heating system into an effective heat supply with as little expense and effort as possible. The solution was provided by the "eccolution" renovation system from Kermi. With the installation of ninety eccolution substructures, up to 18 % higher energy savings is now being achieved while simultaneously improving thermal comfort.

With strong roots in Baden-Württemberg, the EnBW is one of the most important energy supply companies and service providers in Germany and Europe. The "EnBW City" is the administration office building of EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG in Stuttgart. The new-build they moved into in early 2009 is their central administration unit with a total of 2100 work spaces which historically had been split among 20 pieces of real estate in the city centre. The company is expecting more efficient workflows and reinforcement of the company culture as a result of grouping everyone together. In addition to that, the new administration building was to demonstrate how to build in a way to protect the environment while being cost-effective. In comparison to the reference buildings, energy consumption is reduced here by up to 54 %, for example because of the one of the largest geothermal systems in Europe.
In this futuristic building, Kermi radiators provide comfortable warmth while being highly energy efficient.

With around 145,000 members, the Association of German Engineers (VDI) is one of the largest technical-scientific associations in Europe. In August 2008 the VDI and its associated companies located in Düsseldorf moved into the new VDI-Haus in the Airport-City in Düsseldorf. Decisive for the choice of location was the future-oriented infrastructure. The Airport-City offers perfect travel options for visitors of events and training seminars held by VDI. Furthermore, the new VDI-Haus makes it possible for all units of the VDI Group located in Düsseldorf to come together in one building.
In total around 630 therm-x2 steel panel radiators were installed in the new head office of the Association of German Engineers in Düsseldorf. These radiators feature 25 % shorter heating period and up to 11 % energy savings. In addition to that, up to 100 % higher radiated heat output is attained in comparison to conventional steel panel radiators, a tangible plus in thermal comfort.
