A world first, Roche Diagnostics has been outfit with a highly efficient CCF-façade (Closed Cavity Façade), a major contribution to the building’s sophisticated, sustainable energy concept. The building is approx. 68 m (223 ft) high with an oversized ground floor and 15 upper floors. V-shaped concrete columns are located directly behind the external envelope. These columns form a four story diamond structure over the full height of the building. The CCF-façade comprises an innovative closed, non-ventilated, double skin system developed by our group. Considering the individual climatic conditions at the building site, a nozzle steadily feeds clean dry air into the closed curtain wall cavity, thus allowing pressure release and preventing condensation.
Scope of Work
8,200 sqm of double-skin Closed Cavity Façade (CCF) with supply of dry air
