In the early 1980s, Commerzbank sought a sustainable solution for housing its fast-growing data processing division. Planning was subject to very high standards, requiring maximum redundancy of the building’s energy supply in order to ensure a 24/7 operation of the globally networked EDP, for instance. Add to this the high security requirements, covering anything from access control to fire prevention and protection.
