Renewable energy company Juwi said it will expand its company headquarters for the third time in as many years to make space for a further 400 employees, or about a quarter of the current payroll.
The company’s Wörrstadt headquarters has won awards for energy efficiency, but its new building will be even more energy-efficient, Juwi subsidiary director Ralf Ratanski said.
Ecological building specialist Griffner, the designer of the existing headquarters, will use prefabricated noggin piece wall elements and massive wallboard to erect the 11,000 square metre expansions in just eight months.
Heat, warm water and electricity are to be provided solely from regenerative sources such as wind power, solar power and bio energy.
Juwi chief executive Matthias Willenbacher said the company “has grown steadily in the last years.” They will take on 500 employees this year.
