This campus will act as a premier location where financial advisers can immerse themselves in training and continuing education. With a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation, the Swiss Life Hannover campus embodies the future of workplaces and learning opportunities.

Modern Working and Learning

With a total area of 3,800 square metres, including more than 30 meeting rooms and an impressive 650-square-metre event hall, this building represents modernity in both architecture and smart office management. The design revolves around flexibility and networking, ensuring a healthy work-life balance by integrating leisure facilities such as lounges and catering facilities. Moreover, outdoor spaces are considered essential and are an integral part of the design, creating a stimulating working environment. The new building meets the gold certification criteria of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and is barrier-free in all areas.

Sustainability as a Guiding Principle

Sustainability is at the heart of Swiss Life Hannover’s vision. The campus will meet the gold certification criteria of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), striving for an optimal balance between environmental, economic and social aspects. As a crucial partner in this sustainable initiative, Sorba plays an essential role in the realisation of the external façade and courtyard. The use of recyclable aluminium composite material (Alpolic) in both the exterior and interior areas underlines the commitment to sustainability.

Challenging Realisation

The challenging design of the campus required innovative solutions, with Sorba playing a crucial role in converting the requested anodised aluminium cladding to aluminium composite material. This helped to ensure consistent colour and achieve a sleek design. The project was carried out in two quality classes of Alpolic, namely FR and A2, which allowed strict safety and durability requirements to be met.
