The leading pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim has built the BI-Cube think tank as an incubator for innovative, agile work processes. Both the approach to the didactics of work practices and the architecture represent new departures at the company’s Ingelheim site. The building is a wood-framed structure covered with a Kielsteg roof. The roof construction creates a pillar-free interior space with a visible wooden ceiling, and a generously proportioned projecting roof over the main entrance.
The solar panels on the roof make the building self-sufficient for electricity.
Prefabrication means rapid construction: the whole building was finished in just 7 months.
Accessible interior areas with a pleasant ambience create a congenial space for new kinds of work.
