    Baumann Consulting was selected by Tishman Speyer to provide energy modeling, LEED consulting, commissioning, and measurement and verification (M&V) services for the first genuinely mixed-use tower in Germany, which is pursuing a LEED CS Platinum certification.

OmniTurm is an innovative new mixed-use development currently under construction in the heart of Frankfurt’s central business district. Germany’s first genuinely mixed-use tower is designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and provides Class A office, residential, and retail space.

With a height of over 600 ft, OmniTurm is offering striking views of the city center, including the nearby Taunusanlage Park and river Main.

The project is pursuing the ambitious goal of a LEED Platinum certification and Tishman Speyer selected Baumann to  provide LEED consulting, fundamental and enhanced commission services, energy modeling, and measurement and verification (M&V).  Combining those services creates synergies and ensures the involvement of a third party to optimize the design, construction and operation of the HVAC systems.

Optimizing the design through evaluation of different  energy efficiency measures led to a cost reduction of over 30% compared to the ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 baseline. Some efficiency features are listed below:

  • High quality envelope
  • Dedicated outdoor air system with heat recovery
  • Low temperature radiant heating and cooling
  • High efficiency chiller
  • High efficiency lighting
  • Connection to the district heating system
