The Vodafone campus includes a 19-story office tower, three building blocks and a parking garage. Bar spacers made of cast concrete were supplied for this purpose.
The 110,000 sqm new headquarters of the mobile communications company Vodafone with around 5,000 office workstations was completed in just 27 months. The construction phase ended in December 2012 and the employees from the previously different locations were merged in Dusseldorf by the beginning of April 2013. The new building includes a 19-storey office tower, three building blocks and a parking garage.
The company wants to offer its employees completely new and innovative structures and plenty of scope for creativity. Only a few of the 5,000 employees have permanently assigned jobs. "Free choice of desk is desired" and every evening the desk must be empty so that another employee can use the space the next day. In addition, the employees will have a green courtyard, also with a good WLAN connection, in which they can work. Many employees also work at home several times a week.
Healthy nutrition and sports are very important at Vodafone. Healthy food is always on the menu in the canteen with 1,200 seats and a small fitness studio has been integrated into the campus.
Of course there is also a Vodafone shop on the ground floor of the building and customers and residents can also use the paths through the campus and the canteen.
