Operating permit for the Confex 

Ein Meilenstein für die Koelnmesse und für JSWD 

After 33 months of construction on a difficult building site, the fire department and the relevant authorities carried out the final inspection on site before issuing the operating permit for the new event and congress location. Koelnmesse is now permitted to hold major events in the so-called Confex. The multifunctional exhibition hall is part of the "Koelnmesse 3.0" program for the future. JSWD won the associated competition in 2016 and had already realized Hall 1. 

Sustainability was an important aspect in the planning for us and the client. For example, 500 photovoltaic modules on the roof provide green energy that is consumed directly on site. This is one of the foundations for the application to the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) for the highest certification, i.e. platinum. 

The Confex will be officially opened on June 28 to mark the 100th anniversary of Koelnmesse.
