Name: EDGE Grand Central Berlin
Location: Berlin, Germany
Located next to Berlin Central Station, EDGE Grand Central Berlin is the first building in Germany that has been pre-certified for both the DGNB Platinum and WELL Core v2 GOLD certifications. EDGE Grand Central Berlin makes smart use of the latest technologies, which facilitate the most efficient operation of the property. A total of around 3,500 innovative multi-sensors supply data based on different parameters for smart, needs-based and sustainable building management. The various uses of the building are supported by an IP backbone and a cloud-based building management system, in which all data is collected and analysed. The EDGE Grand Central building therefore essentially runs itself, with the objective of maximising building performance and energy-efficiency. EDGE Grand Central coincided with the market launch of EDGE Workspaces. The services and spaces offered by EDGE Workspaces will fill the gap between co-working memberships and long-term office leases.
Exclusively for EDGE Grand Central Berlin, architecture experts and health professionals teamed up with neuroscientists to create a workspace design that puts people’s physical and mental wellbeing front and centre. The neuroscientists did not just have input in the design process, but actually had a hand in team categorisation as well. They based this on the following three archetypes: Deep Workers, Multitaskers and Collaborators. The building provides the best possible conditions for each of these archetypes to flourish.
