BVG Training Centre and Workshops Berlin

Back on the right track

In Machandelweg, the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG - Berlin Transport Workers) runs a training and vocational centre as well as workshops for repair and maintenance of underground railway carriages. KREBS+KIEFER were responsible for the development of the fire safety concepts for the re-building of three historical workshop spaces.

Their steel constructions had to be reassessed with regard to fire protection, since the existing regulations require much smaller fire sections. The experts managed to achieve the required level of fire protection with an automated fire detection and alarm system as well as a particularly effective smoke extraction among other measures. Moreover, KREBS + KIEFER advise the BVG on feasibility studies on all fire safety concerns across its various new buildings and conversions of the workshops and the training centre.
