The new administrative headquarters of Germany’s biggest car rental firm accommodates a total workforce of around 1000 in some 25,000 square metres of office space.
Sixt itself employs a staff of 350, with almost twice as many working for other enterprises in sublet parts of the complex.
These included video surveillance and electronic access control, as well as call displays at several entrances to replace long rows of bells. The entrances had to be connected up in groups, and also permit subsequent expansion. Alongside twelve individual call stations, scope also had to be provided for installation of a concierge station. And needless to say, the systems were required to reflect the class and sophistication of the complex.
The backlit info module provides space for company logos, opening times or other tenant-specific inscriptions. In view of the complex specification profile and the required scope for future upgrading, the planners opted for the professional installation system Siedle Multi with multiple-channel video.
For the externally positioned units, they decided in favour of the modular Siedle Vario system, which integrates the whole range of functional elements in a free-standing or wall mounted version and can be adapted with minimal effort to changing application conditions.
