Atlas Copco is constructing an Electronics Competence Center at its Scheugenpflug GmbH headquarters in Neustadt an der Donau, Germany, to handle the technologies involved in electronics manufacturing. By 2024, the company says it will have three-times more space at the location.
“Our investment underlines the importance we attach to the strategic benchmark technology in Neustadt. We will be supplementing this with technologies from Atlas Copco, thereby strengthening the portfolio even further,” said Berthold Peters, president of the Industrial Assembly Solutions (IAS) division at Atlas Copco.
Atlas says the building is designed as an extension of its headquarters at Gewerbepark 23 – with space for face-to-face meetings in the Innovation Center, in the training rooms and offices, and in a café area. Employees and visitors will have a total of 4,100 square-meters of meeting space, spread over two floors. The complex is arranged in three cubes as an innovation triangle around a green center, bordered by open spaces and parking spaces for bicycles and cars. Construction work has already begun on preparatory measures, such as employee parking lots and a turning bay for future logistics.
“We are delighted that, with its new building in Neustadt an der Donau, Scheugenpflug – in conjunction with Atlas Copco – is creating tremendous added value for the region – both economically and architecturally,” said Mayor Thomas Memmel.
Atlas says the guiding principle in planning the building was to incorporate sustainable technology, including efficient use of space, eco-friendly building services using a photovoltaic system integrated in the building’s glass facade, heat pump technology, and heat recovery from the ventilation units. By integrating smart building systems in the new Scheugenpflug Electronics Competence Center, the architects aimed to achieve the gold standard for LEED, an internationally recognized certification system for ecological construction.
