The refurbishment of the GC-Complex at the Ruhr-University Bochum involves stripping back the building to the basic structure. A central consideration is the integration of the complex into the existing architectural and formal structure of the Ruhr-University Bochum.

Facilities which are shared by the faculties are located along a main route which has been newly created to improve orientation and access.

Gerber Architekten completed the IC-Complex in 2013; the IA- IB- and NA- Complexes and the ZGH are currently in planning.
