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 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 latest construction project is also designed to be sustainable in other respects:
Multi-functionality: The new Hall 1 and the South Entrance Foyer 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 positioned directly underneath the South Entrance.
Optimum use of daylight: The front of the new foyer is fully glazed and has a translucent canopy made from glass fibre fabric with LED lighting.
Construction and reconstruction in the southern section were part of our Messe Düsseldorf 2030 Masterplan, which started with the construction of the multifunctional Hall 6 in 2000.
This master plan envisaged investments of around 650 million euros in our site and the successive modernization and renovation of all halls and customer premises by 2030. Unfortunately, the corona pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works - for the time being, our plan is on hold. But as we all know, postponed is not abandoned.
