Redesign and Reconstruction of the historic Pumping Station Chemnitz


The reconstruction of the historic pumping station, to create an event centre with gastronomy, was connected with unusual requirements for building service. The main task was to install all necessary technology in coordination with strong changing utilisation of the building, without losing the efficiency.

Foundation for the heating are a modern gas-boiling-system in connection with a solar system. Supply of the heat takes place with a floor heating and local heating spots, that are fitted for the usage of the areas. Selection and color of the heating surfaces took place in accordance to the character of the building.

Because of the varying usages of the puping station, focus of the ventilation was efficient operation. The perfomance of ventilation is depencent on the CO2-level in the air, the grade of heat recovery is up to 80% and a frequenzy converter is also installed. All necessary requirements for the historic hall roof were met.

The Building service in the kitchen includes the complete sanitary engineering (also fat seperators, floor heating and appropriate ventilation). Exhaust air in the area of stoves is gathered by an induction suction hood.

Last but not least, the fire protection had special requirements. In particular anything thats connected to the wooden roof had to be stested strictly.
