Sewage Treatment Plant Munich Grosslappen

08 · 2006



Buildings between 1986 - 2006

The maintenance and improvement of water quality represent a great challenge to modern society. The conversion of existing structures and the construction of new buildings for this purpose are, therefore, assignments of great responsibility.

Sewage treatment structures have, first and foremost, to meet functional needs. Nevertheless, a number of treatment plants built in the recent years for the city of Munich demonstrate that design considerations can also play an important role.

Over a period of 20 years, from 1986-2006, and further on, we have helped to give the old Munich I sewage treatment plant a new face. The project comprised the planning and construction management of the new buildings, as well as the detailed design of the engineering structures. The work included

  • Artistic and architectural consultancy in respect of the new engineering structures forming the second biological purification plant
  • Construction of the new building for mechanical plant with a hall for vehicles and equipment
  • Construction of administration buildings and laboratories
  • Construction of a heating plant
  • Construction of a workshop for equipment and electrical installations
  • Artistic and architectural consultancy in respect of the hall for mechanical plant and the new buildings for the northern works yard
  • Facade refurbishment of the water purification pumping house
  • Artistic and architectural consultancy in respect of construction of a new sand filtration plant with electrical building. Sewage water pumping station, drain-quantity measurement with visitors´ room, work yard and adjacent to existing buildings, porters´ house and ground floor parking.
