The international IT service provider Materna is building its new corporate headquarters with 1,800 workplaces on 44,000 square metres of office space on the former Phoenix West industrial site. The ceremonial laying of the foundation stone took place on 15 July in the presence of numerous representatives and guests. The “new dimension of working environments” emphasised by Dr. Winfried Materna, founder and shareholder of Materna, is reflected in the design concept. Open spatial structures ensure dynamic communication processes, while the walk-in courtyard landscape and the reception hall with landscape staircase as communication platforms provide transparency and dynamism. The investment volume for the new corporate headquarters, which meets high energy efficiency standards and offers employees advanced e-mobility concepts, is over 120 million euros.
