02.07.2019 I Construction begins: Refurbishment of the fire station 1, Munich

The construction of one of the largest building construction projects under supervision of EDR’s project management begins this summer with the first of three phases: the refurbishment of the fire station 1 in the city centre of Munich, at the Sendlinger Tor.

The core of the professional fire brigade - with the highest numbers of operations of all Munich fire stations - had seen better days. It was founded in 1904, making it the oldest of the ten fire stations in Munich. It houses the management, the management staff and five departments of the fire department. In addition, the building complex houses various technical workshops, official lodgings and a fire brigade museum.

Due to its age, the structural condition and certain functional areas no longer meet the requirements of a modern fire brigade. A complete refurbishment of all buildings is necessary and will be implemented in the coming years according to the targeted budgeting decision "Feuerwachen 2020" of the City of Munich.

Everything will be done during normal operations: the main fire station is responsible for the densely built downtown area of Munich with numerous office and commercial buildings, the clinic district of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich's main railway station and numerous cultural assets.
