Ambitious new construction in Switzerland


Kolektor Missel Schwab delivers a total of 25km of pre-insulated piping for office buildings.


Fellbach / Tübingen, March 2011.
The Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron are among the most well known and most qualified architects worldwide. In Swiss Allschwil, they are building a sensational new office building for the biopharmaceutical manufacturer Actelion. For Herzog & de Meuron, which is in international demand as a planner, the new construction of the Actelion Business Centre was a rare home game, since the Allschwil municipality lies directly at the south-western edge of their home town, Basel.

Around 350 staff work on almost 3,200 square metres at the Actelion Business Centre, finished in 2010. The architects planned the new construction from beam-like structures ordered over one another with a distinctive creative contrast to the surrounding buildings. The spacing between the office wings not only makes it possible to have a thrilling visual orientation between the parts of the buildings on six floors, but also to the neighbouring laboratory and office buildings. Besides an auditorium with 120 seats, on the first floor there is a restaurant open to the public with 230 seats and a cafeteria for guests and staff of the building.

The unusual building form creates uncommon challenges for the TGA specialist planners. Laying extensive entry and disposal pipelines requires numerous changes in direction because of the architecturally ambitious building form. The piping, with a total length of around 25 kilometres was often laid in flooring and could therefore only be laid with a robust and resilient insulation.

For this purpose, only the tear-resistant sound, heat and moisture proofing insulation Misselon-Robust from Kolektor Missel Schwab was considered. In order not to affect the construction area with high storage requirements, the 25,000 metres of pre-insulated piping was delivered just-in-time. The whole construction time plan could be carried out as planned thanks to the reliable and really punctual delivery.

The sound, heat and moisture proofing insulation Misselon-Robust, with a tear-resistant mesh for its surface, is suitable for warm and cold drinking water pipes as well as for heating pipes and cold distribution and cold water pipes for room air and air conditioning equipment. The product not only proves itself through its very low thermal conductivity, but it is also very flexible and easy to handle. Besides use for pre-insulated piping, Kolektor Missel Schwab also delivers insulation without pipes in 2 metre lengths for subsequent and parallel assembly on piping and pipe fittings.

On the basis of the fact that e.g. loss of heat does not play a negligible role in minimising CO2 pollution, the EnEV in Germany stipulates, among others things, comprehensive measures to minimise the loss of heat. So besides insulating the roof and the front, insulating the piping and valves also constitutes a significant factor in saving energy. With Misselon-Robust, integrated insulation of warm water as well as cold water pipes as well as their valves allows the loss of heat to be reduced to a minimum. This efficient insulation therefore makes an important contribution to saving operational costs and is not insignificant in saving CO2 and so respecting environmental protection.
