CEMEX has announced that it has supplied approximately 16 000 m3 of ready-mixed concrete for the expansion of the Continental Automotive Group’s technology development centre in Regensburg, Germany.
CEMEX Germany produced different types of products, such as concrete of various compressive strengths and cement with low hydration heat development for the construction project on Siemensstraße in Regensburg. As the biggest order produced by CEMEX during 2018, the total quantity supplied amounted to approximately 16 000 m3.
The Continental Automotive Group already operates two development centres at its largest site worldwide. One of these centres now has two additional wings, with approximately 26 000 m2 of usable space for up to 1400 workplaces. The new building is expected to be ready for occupancy in 3Q19. Continental employs around 8000 people in Regensburg.
For the ceilings, walls, and columns of the new building’s wings, CEMEX produced about 10 000 m3 of ready-mixed concrete. In addition, CEMEX Concrete Delivery assigned concrete pumping equipment from its plants in Pentling and Nuremburg to the large-scale construction site.
As well as innovative working environments, the new building also includes a cafeteria, a café on the roof terrace, and an underground car park. A small cogeneration plant and a photovoltaic system help to minimise the structure’s ecological footprint. The building is certified according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) specifications, an internationally recognised certification system for environmentally friendly and sustainable construction.
CEMEX’s cement and concrete technology centres are part of the collaborative R&D network led by CEMEX Research Group AG, headquartered in Switzerland.
