The structural shell of the Regensburg Innovation Centre (IZR) is now complete, so the topping-out was celebrated on 22 October 2014. Representatives from politics and business, including the Mayor of Regensburg, Joachim Wolbergs, were invited to the ceremony. Alexander Rupprecht, the Managing Director of R-Tech, praised the innovative construction method and the new building’s sustainable energy concept. The District President of the Upper Palatinate, Mr Axel Bartelt, emphasised the short construction duration. Project manager and construction engineer, Bernhard Lutter, underlined the building’s great efficiency, both in production and operation. “This is assured by the low energy consumption, internal energy generation – especially electricity – and ample energy storage. Incidentally, this combination of system components is a novelty.” (Mitteldeutsche Zeitung)
The goal of the project is to boost the existing close cooperation between science and business in Regensburg. To this end, the IZR is being built on the TechCampus Regensburg, close to the city centre and directly connected to the Regensburg University campus. As a prelude to the emerging TechCampus, it will ensure outstanding conditions for technology firms. The IZR is scheduled for occupancy at the end of 2015 and will offer office, workshop and laboratory spaces.
