The EUREF-Campus in Berlin-Schöneberg has established itself and will be completed in 2023. Now, the campus is about to become an export hit – in Düsseldorf, a second EUREF-Campus will be built. On 26 August, a groundbreaking ceremony took place. Future tenants of the campus attended the ceremony, as well as the City of Düsseldorf with its Mayor Dr. Stephan Keller and the State of North-Rhine Westphalia with its Prime Minister Armin Laschet.

The EUREF Campus Düsseldorf is set to become the new, climate-neutral corporate headquarters of SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa, supporting the company’s growth and sustainability targets. “SPIE’s core business involves offering services for a carbon-free economy. This is why we see ourselves as part of the solution for a sustainable future. The move to the EUREF Campus Düsseldorf emphasizes this mission of SPIE like no other place. “

A green campus, with a focus towards the interior, a solar glass roof and the original Gasometer (gasholder) dome is to be built, conveniently close to the airport and adjacent to the U81 and express bike lanes.
In addition, a mobility hub is to be set up as a testing and founding platform for e-mobility, sharing models and autonomous driving.
