Making the Dancing Towers Even Greener

Company News, Energy Management, EMEA, Commercial Property

Hamburg's iconic Dancing Towers are being retrofitted with MeteoViva’s intelligent building control platform under an initiative to reduce CO2 emissions across the HANSAINVEST Real Assets portfolio.


Acquired from STRABAG in 2014, the LEED Gold certified development offers 33,000 square metres of rental space, and has been selected by MIPIM and The International Real Estate Federation (Fiabci) for multiple green building awards since 2014, including the World Prix d'Excellence.


Martina Averbeck, managing director of HANSAINVEST Real Assets, comments:

“MeteoViva Climate is now well established and deserves its excellent reputation in the industry.


"With the digital solution we are reducing our CO2 emissions and operating costs while increasing the comfort for our tenants. This is one of many examples of our active asset management approach to increase the value of our properties."


MeteoViva. managing director, Dr. Jan Scheffler, adds: "MeteoViva highlights its leading position in intelligent building controls once again with this project. Our goal is for MeteoViva Climate to establish itself as the standard solution for a smart technical facility management in commercial properties worldwide.


"The implementation in the Dancing Towers shows that our solution can further increase the sustainability even in high-tech buildings with LEED Gold certification".


Hans Voss, Head of Facility Services at STRABAG subsidiary, STRABAG PFS (the development's property and facility manager), adds: "We were one of the advocates for a MeteoViva implementation. The approach that combines a comfortable indoor climate with energy efficiency reflects our aspiration for a sustainable building operation."
