YIT gets major contract from the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, Germany

YIT Germany has been awarded a contract in the amount of EUR 10 million within the scope of the new construction at the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, Derendorf Campus. In a consortium with construction company Züblin and electrical installation company Oertel & Prümm, YIT will build Building 5 (Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering departments) in the capacity of a general contractor. YIT as the building services engineering expert will be responsible for the following areas: sanitary facilities, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, fire protection, DDC control systems for technical facilities as well as user-specific facilities. Start of construction for the technical installations and systems is September 2013, with the project to be concluded by mid-2015. YIT will subsequently assume facility maintenance.

Heating will be provided by means of 1,500 kW heat exchangers which will be connected to the  campus-own district heating network. The heat exchangers for the cooling system also have a capacity of 1,500 kW. The ventilation and air conditioning will be provided by about 40 air handling units and various ventilators with an air volume of 340,000 m3/h. User-specific facilities include the supply of laboratory gases, demineralized water, and compressed air as well as a climate chamber and the entire laboratory equipment. YIT will also build cleanrooms with a total floor area of 300 m2 and will be responsible for qualification and certification.

The Derendorf Campus of the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf will be constructed on the grounds of the former Schlösser Brewery as well as on partial areas of the former municipal slaughterhouse based on the plans of Munich architectural firm Nickl & Partner. A total of five new buildings will be constructed here, and one existing building will be renovated. Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW is the builder.
