The new MAFINEX Technology Centre is one of the most important building blocks of innovation promotion for the Mannheim Economic Development Agency to support the transfer of research and development to products and services. Embedded in the master plan Glückstein-Quartier, the technology centre has taken up its new location between the University and the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. The building structures delimit courtyard areas and open outdoor facilities with trees and squares. This has created the vital fabric of a campus that activates the communication of the founders of new businesses. The basic comfort is provided by a concrete core tempering of the massive ceilings in summer and winter. A climate control facade complements the future-oriented technology concept. On the roof surfaces, a photovoltaic system has been installed, which has a capacity of 53kWp.
