Construction of Remscheid’s Vocational Training Centre underway

January 24, 2019

On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Remscheid’s Vocational Training Center for the metal and electrical industry held a ground-breaking ceremony for their new building. Together with others involved in the construction Jochen Stahl symbolically reached for the spade. Due to the good weather conditions, the construction work had already begun last year and is progressing successfully.

With its dual training system, the center is poised to play a major role in the competitive local industry, where technical specialists are a valuable commodity. For this reason, major investments are being made to modernize the region’s specialist training facilities.

For Fast + Epp, this project has been an exciting design challenge; an opportunity to push the envelope and find new solutions. Part of the innovative structure includes a hollow concrete floor system that reduces the volume of concrete, and thus the weight of the system. This will create a unique building in Remscheid.
