DNV GL Group office Hamburg (Germany)

When selecting materials for the construction of an underground parking garage, it is necessary to take into account the federal and local ordinances that set requirements for fire resistance. In the case of a large garage constructed as part of the DNV GL Group Headquarters in Hamburg in 2011, the insulation layers needed to consist of non-combustible building materials. At the same time, it was necessary to use materials that provided a pleasing appearance for the garage.

This two-pronged challenge of simultaneously meeting safety standards and aesthetic requirements is common to situations where insulation is visible in the finished construction.
