PIB – Building Pharmaceutical Institute Bonn

Werner Sobek is responsible for the structural engineering of the new building for the Pharmaceutical Institute of the University of Bonn at the Endenich Campus. The building is a replacement for the institute’s old building from the 1970s at the same location.

Complex Usability in the Foreground

The new building is planned as a reinforced concrete skeleton structure consisting of two building sections with a perforated facade, which are connected by a common staircase. The uppermost storeys project up to 10 m in some areas.

The four upper floors will later house the laboratories, practical training rooms as well as offices and seminar rooms. Two lecture halls and a cafeteria are also planned. One focus of the planning was on the extremely complex usability of rooms and areas in terms of low vibrations, very dense building services, many laboratory devices, seminar rooms and research areas, workshops, cafeteria, etc. The total usable area is 6,895 m² for around 400 students and 130 employees.
