Success Stories

Kauri CAB Group

Groundbreaking: The outdated Forum Troisdorf shopping centre near Bonn will become a leisure and event location with a completely new concept. 

01 The opportunity

The KAURI CAB Group is actually expert in the development and refurbishment of residential properties. And highly innovative ones at that. The concepts and planning both focus on future residential trends and smart technologies that make living more modern and sustainable. 

With the Forum Troisdorf project, the future-oriented property developer from the capital is once again breaking new ground, with a plan to transform the visibly-aging shopping centre from the seventies into a modern leisure and event location. The around 30,000 square metres over five storeys and parking deck, is to accommodate gastronomy alongside wellness, sports and entertainment facilities. What's new about this is that, in addition to core uses such as a bouldering facility and a container hotel, which are designed to operate for years, other offerings will alternate. In pop-up fashion, new activities will be added at regular intervals, replacing others. For example, where 4D cinema performances take place for a few weeks or months, a dance studio, an escape room or event gastronomy may move in afterwards. After all, a visit to the centre should remain exciting in the long term. 

For the implementation of the specially developed revitalisation concept, KAURI sought an experienced partner for the general planning and project management.

02 The solution

Projects with a new concept are always challenging. Especially when it is a question of development in an existing building that was not originally intended for modern, sustainable and above-all such highly-flexible use. In future – in contrast to the original layout and planning - structural separation of the individual rental areas is to be dispensed with in favour of flexibility. and smooth transitions will be created. A drastic intervention. Our team of architects, engineers, structural engineers and specialist planners is accordingly broad-based. And the personal and virtual cooperation with KAURI is correspondingly close in order to be able to act quickly, successfully maintain the balancing act between the new concept and the existing building, and to react flexibly to unforeseen events or requests from external sources, e.g. from the local authority. 

Detailed technical due diligence was the starting point for the planning in terms of architecture, building services and structural engineering. At the same time, it provided the basis for clarifying the most important questions: What can be preserved? Which materials can remain? Where and how should new construction take place in order to achieve the desired spatial flexibility in the building? And how can regenerative energies be effectively integrated in order to ensure the highest possible energy efficiency in future operation? 


03 The results

The refurbishment is being carried out in clearly structured phases - from the obtaining of a building permit to the stripping out work and fitting out as an experience location. In the summer of 2023, Forum Troisdorf will be reopened under a under a new name and a completely new brand concept and will offer its visitors a wide variety of experiences and recreational opportunities. For the construction phase, therefore, special regulations regarding safety and hygiene apply, if only because of the expansion period, and these will also be incorporated just as intensively into the future look and feel of the property. How can new hygiene standards - e.g. filters in the air conditioning system - be integrated? And do green facades, integration of new photovoltaic systems or a combined heat and power plant make sense in the long term? These are considerations and challenges that we are happy to face, as building health will, more than ever before, be a determining factor in every future project.
