Schüco Corporate Services

Deconstruction, recycling and modernization

Dismantling, recycling and modernisation: the Schüco company shows how this is done, taking as an example the Corporate Services building on the company‘s campus in Bielefeld. Instead of demolishing the old building, which had been built in stages since 1960, it was completely renovated. On the outside, the complex presents itself in a new guise: The old aluminium components of the façade were recycled and replaced by modern, energy-efficient cradle-to-cradle certified façade elements. Design quality in wood dominates in the interior: the office levels, which have been completely redesigned according to the New Work principle, are designed for around 160 Schüco employees, open areas alternating with desk-sharing options, individual offices for quiet working, classic meeting rooms and zones for informal communication. To ensure that concentrated work is also possible in large contiguous areas, LIGNO® Acoustic light elements in oak were used for room acoustic compensation on ceilings and walls.

    Wood type

    Various wood species are available for the visible layer. For quality reasons, individual wood species cannot be configured for all profiles; for technical reasons, surface treatments are excluded for some wood species.

    Wood type

    _EI Oak knotless


    The visible layer is profiled with joints. The code for profiling indicates in millimetres: Element width, strip width (rounded, from/to if applicable) and joint width (rounded) as well as a letter identification for variants, e.g. with chamfered strip edges or with additional height gradation.

    Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.


    _625-12-4 Slat profile


    The face is subjected to a brushing _gb as standard, which produces a stronger or weaker structure depending on the type of wood and makes the surface less sensitive to scratches. Alternatively, a smooth sanding _gs can be carried out, or on request a bandsaw cut _grimitated.


    _gb Brushed


    Depending on the type of wood, the optional application of a surface treatment is possible ex works. Individual colour finishes are always sampled for coordination. For elements in individual lengths, colour treatment is limited to max. 5 m length.

    Room acoustics

    If the soffit of the element is to have a good sound-absorbing effect, the penultimate layer is configured as absorber _a50g. Otherwise, this layer is configured as a solid wood layer _a0.
