Cemex helps expand Continental development centre in Germany

Cemex says it has supplied approximately 16,000 cubic metres of ready-mix concrete for the expansion of the Continental Automotive’s technology development centre in Regensburg, Germany.

Cemex Germany produced different types of products such as concrete of various compressive strengths and cement with low hydration heat development for the construction project on Siemensstraße in Regensburg.

According to Cemex, one of Continental’s development centres now has two additional wings with approximately 26,000 square metres of usable space for up to 1,400 workplaces. The new building is expected to be ready for occupancy in the third quarter of 2019. Continental employs around 8,000 people in Regensburg.

For the ceilings, walls, and columns of the new building’s wings, Cemex produced around 10,000 cubic metres of ready-mix concrete. Also, Cemex Concrete Delivery assigned concrete pumping equipment from its plants in Pentling and Nuremberg to the large-scale construction site.

The new building includes a cafeteria, a café on the roof terrace, and an underground car park. A small cogeneration plant and a photovoltaic system help minimise the structure’s ecological footprint. The building is certified according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications, an internationally recognised certification system for environmentally friendly and sustainable construction.

Cemex’s cement and concrete technology centers are part of the collaborative research and development network led by Cemex Research, headquartered in Switzerland.
