What has happened so far?
(Overview of important steps in the construction project)
In November 2013, HIS-Hochschulentwicklung im Deutschen Zentrum für Hochschul- und Wissenschaftsforschung (DZHW) GmbH prepares a space requirement assessment for the then Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Ecology - Bremen.
In its statement on the evaluation of ZMT, the Senate of the Leibniz Association demands: "Office space and laboratory facilities must grow in concert with the planned expansion of personnel. In the long run, a new building is needed."
In March 2014, HIS-Hochschulentwicklung im Deutschen Zentrum für Hochschul- und Wissenschaftsforschung (DZHW) GmbH prepares a feasibility study for a new building for the then Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Ecology - Bremen, based on a differentiated space requirement assessment.
In order to maintain the connection and exchange with the university, the federal and state governments want the construction project to be carried out in close proximity to the University of Bremen on the campus grounds. In March 2018, the University of Bremen will make space available for this purpose.
With the registration of a major construction measure, the State of Bremen submits the application for the construction of the ZMT institute building to the Joint Science Conference (GWK) at the beginning of September.
In its 37th session, the Committee for Science, Media, Data Protection and Freedom of Information of the Bremen Parliament unanimously decides on the new building Centre for Tropical Marine Research on the basis of the resolution (VL-825/2018).
See also item 3.6. of the minutes of the meeting.
At its 49th meeting, the Budget and Finance Committee (Land) approves the financing proposal for the new building of the Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) for the amount of 34.8 million euros (of which Bremen's share is 17.4 million euros). It authorises the Senator for Finance to implement this financing proposal under budgetary law. See also item 4.7 of the meeting minutes.
Workshops moderated by the if5 agency are held for all ZMT employees to collect ideas, needs and requirements of all future users of the building. These will then be processed in such a way that they can flow into the further process - including implementation by architects. All ZMT employees are involved in this participatory process. Also in spring 2019, immobilien bremen, the enterprise of the municipality of Bremen, begins steering the project for the new ZMT building.
In May 2019, the Bremen law firm Ganten Hünecke Bieniek & Partner, which specialises in construction and tenancy law, can be engaged to advise on the new building project and to carry out the VgV planning procedure.
The experienced architectural firm Schwanewedel | Bollmann | Frenz | Ehm can be engaged as consultants for the VgV planning procedures in June 2021.
The announcement of the VgV - restricted single-stage competition for the realisation of building construction with preliminary competition to determine the object planning of the new ZMT building as an EU-wide invitation to tender (R2.0.9.S04) is published.
The notice of the VgV - negotiated procedure to determine the planning TWPl (structural design) as an EU-wide invitation to tender (R2.0.9.S05) is published.
After a query colloquium on 18 July 2022 and the submission of the final bid, SWAP Architecture qualifies as the planner of the object.
The contract between the ZMT and SWAP Architektur is cerimoniously signed.
On 7 June 2023, ZMT employees were invited by our project manager, Drees & Sommer (DRESO), to get to know the open office concept practised at the firm. DRESO has its offices in Bremen's Überseestadt.
19 - 21/6/2023
From 19-21 June, the first internal workshops were held with ZMT staff on the following topics:
Presentation of the design for the new ZMT building with a focus on the working world. Insight into the competition design of the new ZMT building. The architectural aspects and the integration of modern working concepts are presented.
Best Practice Modern Working Worlds. By analysing projects that have already been implemented, the topic of modern working environments with all its facets will be examined more closely.
Work processes at the ZMT. Using fictitious personas, we would like to consider the different work processes and the resulting requirements for the workplace and the resulting demands on the workplace.
The future workplace at the ZMT. Together we would like to design the workplace of the future at the ZMT and consider how it can be optimally adapted to the needs and requirements of the ZMT, how it can be optimally aligned with the needs and requirements of the employees.
Presentation of the design of the new ZMT building with focus on the public zone & library. Detailed insight into the design of the new ZMT building. The focus is on the public areas of the ZMT: foyer, seminar & meeting areas and the library.
Events at ZMT. Based on the events held at the ZMT so far, we would like to review the spatial requirements
context together and determine the necessary infrastructure.
The future library / media unit at ZMT. Together we would like to discuss the future requirements for the library and their spatial implementation.
