HOCHTIEF Projektentwicklung is realizing the new headquarters of Atos Origin in the Gruga Carree in Essen: the international IT service provider is going to pool together its branches from Cologne, Düsseldorf and Essen with a total of around 900 employees at the new location. By the end of 2011, approximately 8,400 m² of gross floor space will be constructed for offices, a conference zone and company restaurant.
Robert Bambach, Manager of HOCHTIEF Projektentwicklung, emphasized: "Implementing sustainability concepts for new office buildings has now become a standard feature of our business."
Winfried Holz, CEO of Atos Origin Deutschland & CEMA, explained his company's choice of location: "In keeping with our Green IT Strategy the new building will be consistently built to incorporate sustainability: at the new location we are creating a modern working concept which suits our company's requirements."
He noted that his company had opted for Essen "because we feel welcome here and we hope to achieve good visibility at this location".
Reinhard Pass, Mayor of the City of Essen, added: "Atos Origin's decision underlines the importance of the City of Essen as a location for communication technology. Attracting futureoriented industries to locate here is a sound basis for the economic success of Essen."
