This prize acknowledges the whole integral planning team, and HPP would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank them all for the successful collaboration: client INTERBODEN, without whom such a pilot project could not have been realised, Drees+Sommer Advanced Building Technologies and EPEA – Part of Drees & Sommer for the Cradle-to-Cradle® consulting and implementation of the BIM model / material passport, as well as Knippers Helbig, TRANSSOLAR and Bähr Ingenieure.
Dusseldorf’s first timber hybrid office building is currently being created according to the Cradle-to-Cradle® principle in the city’s Medienhafen. “Being awarded the special BIM prize is a great delight to us and strengthens our resolve to consistently pursue new paths. ‘The Cradle’ is one of the first Cradle-to-Cradle® projects in which the material passport is linked to the BIM model and thus all the data needed for later deconstruction is digitally available. This enables an evaluation of consequential ecological effects such as health class, deconstruction rating and recyclability“, says Gerhard G. Feldmeyer, Senior Partner at HPP Architects.
The pioneering sustainability concept, striking architecture and consistent use of 3D/BIM impressed the illustrious jury of experts. Besides the use of BIM, particular praise was given to the creation of an additional level in this project on which BIM and sustainability were successfully amalgamated. This was an added incentive for the jury to award this project the coveted BIM prize in its decision on 3 December 2020. More on the winners, the project and the jury’s evaluation.
