The "Construction and Engineering" business area includes ongoing renovation and modernisation of the building stock as well as the task of keeping the building's technical installations functional and ready for use all year round. In recent years, the facilities in all residential areas and the day-care centre have been systematically renewed, supplemented and constantly upgraded to the latest state of the art.

Our current projects:

Project student housing complex Friedrichstraße 87

In order to realise the urgently needed affordable living space for students, especially near the city centre, the purchase agreement for a residential and commercial building in Friedrichstraße was signed as early as 2018. The handover to the Studierendenwerk took place at the beginning of March 2020, and the first preliminary work, such as demolition and renovation, was already started at the end of March. Parallel to this, the implementation planning of the specialist planners, the invitations to tender and the awarding of contracts took place. From July 2020, the first trades, such as plumbing, heating and electricity, could begin with their conversion work. A total of 17 flats, 4 double rooms and 6 rooms in shared flats are planned. The estimated total costs of the conversion amount to around 1.5 million euros. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2020, so that the apartments can be rented to students from 01.01.2021.        


Project student housing complex Effertsufer 74

At the beginning of 2020, the Studierendenwerk bought a former warehouse and workshop building on the Effertsufer. The three-storey solid building with a full basement is to be converted into around 100 flats. Initial plans envisage a mix of different flats, doubles and shared flats for a total of around 98 residents in the existing building. On the spacious plot of land, a new extension for an additional 54 dormitory places could be built on the left-hand side, thus creating living space for a total of 152 students. Completion and occupation by students is planned for the 2023 summer semester.
