Customised Facades

A striking backdrop.

Lindner is your partner of choice when it comes to customised solutions that stand out due to their contemporary, flamboyant architecture. We support you from the very outset by providing tailor-made solutions from one source and an efficient construction with significantly fewer interfaces.

Prior to production, our customised facades will be tested in our own TÜV certified laboratories and by external test institutes under the strictest conditions. Lindner uses a sophisticated method for modular building which is especially efficient. The largely prefabricated elements significantly reduce installation time on site.

Lindner Group Headquarters, Arnstorf

Within just a few weeks in summer 2010 large parts of the old facade of the Lindner headquarters in Arnstorf were replaced by glass and aluminum facade elements. During the construction phase operations in the affected offices could be maintained due to a sophisticated and simple construction as well as assembly. Instead of large scaffolding only a mobile crane in combination with a lifting platform was used for mounting all brackets and elements.

WestendGate Frankfurt

The comprehensive modernisation and renovation of Germany’s once highest building (159 metres) was completed by the end of 2010. Hundreds of tons of waste materials had to be disposed of in the course of the energy renovation and architectural redesign of the building. South west facing photovoltaic elements now cover the entire short side of the building. They are not only supposed to emphasise the building’s energy optimisation, but also improve its overall CO2 footprint.

The result is a resource-saving and energy-effi cient skyscraper which the European Commission certifi ed as „Green Building“. This project was also awarded the German Solar Prize 2011 by EUROSOLAR e.V in the category of “Owners or operators of renewable energy installations”.
