When it comes to educational buildings, lighting planners face the challenge of lighting large, extensively used rooms cost-effectively. Because of its energy efficiency and ease of maintenance, ERCO LED lighting technology offers precisely the right solution. That was also the case in the modernised auditoriums of the Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences which are lit with the new generation of ERCO Quintessence LED downlights.
In Teaching Building 4, House 1 of the Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences, students are taught agricultural economics, food sciences, health, nursing, management, agricultural science, geomatics, social work, education and early education. The Betrieb für Bau und Liegenschaften Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (state authority responsible for building and real estate) commissioned A&S GmbH Neubrandenburg with planning the phased refurbishment of House 1 through to the final modernisation of Teaching Building 4. "House 1 was built back in GDR times, largely from prefabricated concrete, which was produced by the then state organisation responsible for building industrial and residential buildings, and it was opened on 1 October 1989 as the “Pedagogical University of Neubrandenburg. Two years and a political transformation later, the university completely realigned itself,” says architect Siegmund Flöting, summing up the history of the building which was now being gutted and redesigned.
