ALEXSEAL’s parent company, Mankiewicz GmbH recently broke ground on the “Ingenieurwerk,“ or Engineering building, shining light on the company’s future growth and ongoing commitment to research, development and networking. With employee education, training and well-being in mind, this new facility will feature an environment that staff, affiliates and customers will thoroughly enjoy.
Designed and engineered by planwerk elbe GmbH, the purpose of the “Ingenieurwerk” building is not only to have a growing space for Mankiewicz employees, but also to house close affiliate companies such as UMCO Umwelt Consult GmbH, who handles all of Mankiewicz’s safety data sheets and environmental compliance. A number of close Hamburg business allies will jointly utilize the facility’s new marketing and IT facilities, with companies in a variety of fields planning to move into these new premises. This collaborative co-working space will increase information flow between companies which will in-turn benefit customers due to the network’s synergetic effect and increased efficiency.
Some of the features generating the most buzz throughout Mankiewicz’s campus is the inclusion of a new canteen, changing rooms and shower facilities. A new lecture room will be available for events and conferences. State-of-the-art presentation technology and acoustics will harmonize the space, creating an optimum experience for all those present. Additional conference rooms will also be available for group work and meetings of varying sizes and requirements.
Completion of the “Ingenieurwerk” building is scheduled for the end of 2015 and all of Mankiewicz’s Hamburg personnel look forward to this modern office and social building. Its opening will introduce many workplace improvements including a boost in communication between colleagues and business partners, relaxation, food, modern furnishings, and state-of-the-art equipment.
