New laboratory building for Technical University of Munich

New laboratory building for Technical University of Munich at Campus Straubing

A new laboratory building has been constructed for the Technical University of Munich (TUM) at the TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability. In October 2017, Cadolto was awarded the contract to plan and construct a modular laboratory building. Now – just nine months later – it has been handed over to the client.

The new building boasts a gross floor area of 1,135 m² and provides seven new rooms, each measuring roughly 72 m², for research and teaching activities. The professorships for “Microbiology” and “Organic Chemistry and Microreaction Technology” will be housed on the ground and the first floor of the new laboratory building. Two of the laboratory rooms are designed for providing practical experience.

The project was planned in collaboration with the Munich-based architect Simone Lochbihler. The new build was manufactured with a high level of prefabrication and installation of cutting-edge laboratory equipment at the Cadolto factory in Cadolzburg. The 22 modules for the new laboratory building were transported to the construction site by lorry. The remaining laboratory instruments were then installed during the finishing works.

Cadolto is a leading modular construction specialist based in Cadolzburg/Germany. For the construction of individual modular buildings, all trades are provided from a single source: from planning through to turnkey handover. Cadolto recently showcased its innovative laboratory display module to leading experts at the industry event “Labor-Impuls-Forum 2018”.
