  3. EJOT TecCenter – Ecological and sustainable

Ecological and sustainable – wood the dominating raw material of the new building

EJOT Group invests 8 million euros in a new TecCenter in Bad Laasphe

The EJOT Group is building a new TecCenter for the Market Unit Construction (construction fasteners) at the Bad Laasphe site. Directly next to the production site “In der Aue”, the building area is already prepared. The total investment is around 8 million euros, the planning was carried out by the planning office Pahl + Weber-Pahl (Darmstadt). According to the current schedule, the building will be finished at the beginning of 2023.   
"Ecology and efficiency play a central role in this construction project and thus also fit the strategic EJOT goals of climate neutrality and sustainability," emphasizes the managing partner of the EJOT Group, Christian Kocherscheidt.  Wood is the dominating raw material for the TecCenter: A supporting structure made of beech (cross laminated timber), reinforced concrete-wood composite ceilings, wooden stud walls with clay components. Charging stations for e-mobility in front of the building, green facades, photovoltaics, geothermal energy with heat pump and solar thermal energy complete the holistic concept. The TecCenter with "passive house character" thus fulfils the kfw funding requirements for CO2 neutrality of businesses.
The rectangular building has a floor area of 24 x 53 meters. It is partially two-story and modular in design. The visualizations already give the impression of a modern, bright, open, but equally clear and simple design.
On the first floor, there is a large area especially for customers, where they can experience EJOT in 3D within an "augmented reality". The showroom offers a lounge atmosphere and products to touch. The large seminar room, that reminds one of a lecture hall, provides capacity
 for about 60 people and is completed by another large meeting room and catering facilities complete this area. In addition, there are technical facilities such as workshops, climatic chambers for conditioning wood and plastic, a room for 3-D printers, and a digitally equipped creative room that is a meeting room, workshop and functional room all in one.
The upper floor essentially houses the offices and meeting rooms for the technical departments, but also a number of "shared offices" that can be used flexibly (e.g. for colleagues who have temporary business at the site and need a workstation temporarily).
The EJOT TecCenter is innovative, to also increase the innovative power of EJOT.
