New building complex for the Federal Employment Agency in Cologne with a TONALITY® facade

Agentur für Arbeit Köln

This is how the new building for the Federal Employment Agency in Cologne on Butzweilerhofallee presents itself, modern and with the classic brick red tile. This administrative building could be completed in only 8 months: a logistical masterpiece. Whilst modular structural components from the company ALHO Systembau GmbH were still being installed at various points, the installation company FRANZEN Fassadentechnik GmbH was already able to install cladding on completed sections of the building.

The client selected the colour Bright red (70009) from the TONALITY® NUANCE range as cladding for this four to six-storey comb-like buildings complex, with a cladding surface area of 7,300 m2. Using the BAS clinch rail system and special profile sections, a composite grid using different tile heights between 275 and 300 mm was realised. In this way the simple and rapid installation of TONALITY cladding tiles determined by the system supported the short construction period.
