After all, the future doesn’t have one either. This is why we’re so single-minded in the pursuit of our environmental goals – through sustainable modernisation. And whatever we build, we make sure we get it right. When we optimise existing buildings, we don’t just look at logistics and service, but also energy requirements. Moreover, when we plan a new building, we make especially sure we draw on our entire expertise and many years of experience. So our new multi-function hall and our completely glass-enclosed new South Entrance (to be completed in 2019) meet the latest standards in energy and resource efficiency – from the lighting through the heating and ventilation systems to a demand-controlled compressed air system.
Our plan has a future
Construction and reconstruction in the southern section are part of our Messe Düsseldorf 2030 Masterplan, which started with the construction of the multifunctional Hall 6 in 2000.
By 2030 we’ll have invested around EUR 650 million in our premises and we’ll have gradually modernised and updated all our halls and customer space. We’re doing so on the basis of sustainable principles:
Multi-functionality: The new Hall 1 and the South Entrance Foyer will have over 14,000 square metres of multifunctional space which allow optimum use.#
Underground parking space: A new underground car park with 300 spaces is being built directly underneath the South Entrance.
Optimum use of daylight: The front of the new foyer will be fully glazed and will have a translucent canopy made from glass fibre fabric with LED lighting.
It all looks great, doesn’t it? It does indeed. And it’s good for our environment and for a sustainable worldwide trade fair business. You’ll be excited when you see it. And also about the future.
