Medical Association of Lower Saxony

At the junction Berliner Allee / Schiffgraben in Hanover, an office and training center with ten upper floors and two lower floors will be built. For this, a skyscraper built in the 60´s has to be demolished, which is connected to the neighboring office and commercial buildings via a common underground car park and a bridge construction. During the dismantling work, the neighboring buildings will continue to be used. In one of the neighboring buildings, there are two data centers with vibration-sensitive server or IT systems.
