The curved shape of the facades is inspired by the nearby Rhine. It also gave the building its name, panta rhei, which means “everything flows” in ancient Greek. The seven floors provide around 9,600 m² of total office space which can be divided into up to three rental units per floor. The office building was awarded the LEED Gold rating in 2015.
The distinctive building was fitted with our low-cost, energy-efficient heating and cooling system, which utilizes close-to-surface concrete core tempering. Approximately 60,000 m of RAUTHERM S pipes were laid across a space measuring 4,500 m². The system will be used to heat and cool the building with maximum convenience.
Good reasons to opt for concrete core tempering
Concrete core tempering – the alternative heating and cooling system
The principle of concrete core tempering is based on the use of storage capacity in structural components. The building’s concrete mass is used to store heat, which facilitates heating and cooling operational cycles at a low, resource-saving temperature level. Refrigeration systems can be much more compact than conventional air conditioning units.
