Clemens-Winkler-Bau - Needs-based accommodation | Laboratory concept stage 1 - New construction of the center and south laboratory wings

Visualisierung des Neubaus Clemens-Winkler-Bau

The construction project is planned on the TU Bergakademie Freiberg campus site, which is located to the northwest of the city center. The dominant building in this area is the Clemens-Winkler-Bau from the 1950s and 1960s, which is used by the Faculty of Chemistry and Physics. This is a landmark building for the campus development and is a listed building.

The first measure was the construction of the north laboratory wing in 2012-14 as a replacement building for the practical laboratories on Leipziger Straße. The construction of two further new buildings connected to the old building and the renovation of the old Clemens-Winkler-Bau building are planned as further measures.

The aim of the new central and south laboratory wings on the west side of the Clemens-Winkler-Bau building is to provide optimal accommodation for the required laboratories, workshops, and storage areas. The two additional laboratory wings will create approx. 4,500 m² of main usable space for various uses with the integration of S2 laboratories and clean room areas.

The other areas required will be accommodated in a further construction phase after the completion of the new laboratory wing buildings with the renovation of the existing building in the Clemens-Winkler-Bau main building.

Construction period: 2017-2023 (new laboratory wing buildings)

Faculty of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering | Centre for Process and Mechanical Engineering | New hall complex, 2nd construction phase

Technische Skizzen von Neubau Hallenkomplex/Technikum

This measure will expand the existing technical centre for machine and process development on Lampadiusstrasse by two additional test halls and three further technical centre blocks.

The Institutes of Machine Elements, Design and Production (MEKF), Mechanical Engineering (UUMA), Mechanical Process Engineering and Processing Technology (MVTAT), Ceramics, Glass and Building Materials Technology (KGBT) and Thermal Process Engineering, Environmental and Natural Materials Process Engineering (ITUN) will receive urgently needed laboratory and technical centre areas to replace the worn-out ones in the existing Karl Kegel and Erich Rammler buildings.

Examinations of the existing buildings showed that a modern laboratory infrastructure in historical buildings is neither economically viable nor does the technical implementation seem feasible due to the large number of complex boundary conditions.

While the Faculty of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering already received modern technical centre areas for general mechanical engineering in 2011 with the first construction phase of the hall complex, the higher-equipped areas for process engineering are now to follow with this measure. The research activities of future users will thus be significantly strengthened, as application-oriented research in particular requires the translation of the laboratory scale into industrial or semi-industrial sizes.

Construction period: 2020-2023
