PWZ Proben- und Werkstättenzentrum

Short description

Implenia was commissioned by the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts to act as total contractor for the design and construction of a new rehearsal and workshop center for the Bavarian State Theatre in Munich, ready for operation.

The project

The agreed services include the planning and new construction of the PWZ with a gross floor area of 21,100 m², from the excavation pit for the 93-meter-long and 86-meter-wide L-shaped building to the interior design including building services, materials handling equipment and stage technology for three rehearsal stages, as well as workshop equipment and canteen facilities. The contract also includes the design of the outdoor facilities, including a service yard with access zones, delivery and installation areas for heavy goods vehicles and containers, an underground car park and the landscaped outdoor area.

The technically demanding project includes the creation of large, freely spanned spaces for the rehearsal stages, which, as a steel composite structure, are reminiscent of bridge construction. An acoustically highly effective building separation joint will protect the rehearsal wing from noise and vibrations from the workshop wing. Other special soundproofing devices will allow the rehearsal stages to be used in parallel. Implenia was able to win the best planners for the special trades of stage technology and workshop technology for the project.

Services in detail

Implenia was already convincing in the prequalification phase with its partnership-based approach and a team of highly qualified internal and external specialists that had already been brought together for the bid processing and offered solutions for the complex technical requirements of the project. During implementation, Implenia will manage the team and, together with its own specialist planners, provide the input and implementation planning as well as the turnkey construction of the new building.

A large proportion of the services will be provided by Implenia itself as an integrated service provider: the specialist civil engineering department will be responsible for constructing the excavation pit. When erecting the shell, Implenia can also draw on specialist expertise from its in-house civil engineering department. BCL Building Construction Logistics, a member of the Implenia Group, ensures that construction proceeds smoothly, safely and sustainably by, among other things, disposing of waste with the help of its own recycling yard. The Façade Engineering division contributes its expertise to the execution of the building envelope made of dark gray corrugated fiber panels, precast concrete elements and aluminum window elements with external venetian blinds.


Sustainable new construction and operation are important to both the client and Implenia. Accordingly, the building is being constructed in accordance with the Building Energy Act (GEG § 10), all materials comply with the "low-pollutant construction" requirements catalog (QN 3) of the Bavarian State Construction Directorate, and the technical systems are designed for sustainable and environmentally friendly operation.
