The structural shell of the Technical Town Hall has been completed and has reached its final height of 52.5 metres. Concurrently, work is taking place to the façade, which now has its first sections in place, and internally too, such as building services equipment installation. GBG Mannheimer Wohnungsbaugesellschaft began construction work in August 2018 and completion is due by the end of 2020.
The building was designed by schneider+schumacher as an open, transparent and striking administration building, with 14 full floors plus a basement. It will offer the city of Mannheim 700 workspaces and the ground floor will house a citizens' advice service and a bistro, which will be open to members of the public.
