ISRA VISION AG has begun construction of its new headquarters building in Darmstadt, Germany. The new headquarters will span around 161,458 square feet in the city’s “Knell” development district. Set to be constructed in two stages, it will consist of three connected buildings housing offices and development laboratories, as well as demonstration and assembly halls, according to a press release.

The project was designed by the local architecture firm fs Architekten. Designed to the latest energy standards, the building will grow over time and will offer space for around 960 employees once fully constructed, according to the company.

The plans for the new headquarters were put in place several years ago by company founder Enis Ersü, who recently retired. In 2020, the globally active Atlas Copco group joined forces with ISRA VISION as a strategic partner, while also remaining committed to the plans for the new headquarters.

The headquarters will be built according to the Effizienzhaus 55 standards (an energy standard for buildings introduced by KfW). It will also feature green spaces and charging facilities for electric vehicles and bicycles and will be constructed using clean, low-noise methods. The completion of the first construction section and moving into the new headquarters are planned for the turn of the year 2022/2023, according to a press release.
