Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe

The BVG moved into the Trias Towers in Berlin Mitte. The three V-shaped towers face the Spree river, are 13 storeys high and are connected by a 6-storey cross wing. They are supposed to symbolise a “Gate to the centre of Berlin”. The facade of the reinforced concrete structure is made of glass.

The building complex was designed by Lucia Beringer and Gunther Wawrik, two Munich-based architects. Its shape is very striking. The V-shaped layout of the tower buildings not only lends the complex an attractive appearance on the outside, but also ensures optimum working conditions inside thanks to excellent lighting.

As a longstanding framework contract partner of the BVG, we won the contract for furnishing 1,100 new workplaces with our L Series worktable system. From the office workplaces to conference and training areas to the executive offices, the BVG will be working on and in the new building with ophelis. In addition to worktables, the project also included storage space, room dividers and seating.

We also took care of the disposal of all the old furniture. The assembly of the numerous storeys took place for the most part at night because we had to react flexibly to the other projects.
