BfR - Federal Institute for Risk Assessment


The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) , currently dispersed in several separate locations in Berlin-Dahlem, will be centralised in Berlin-Charlottenburg from 2011 onwards in order to optimise operational sequences as well as working conditions for its 700 employees. The main objectives of BfR can be summed up as risk diagnosis and health protection.

The laboratories with their 150 workplaces will be situated in a new building, connected by a bridge with an existing adjacent building that will house the offices. The layout of the new building follows the master planning and is integrated into the context of overall development of berlinbiotechpark.

The new building will function as the first part of the architectural environment shaping the future park entrance and due to this should not only meet the highest functional and economic requirements of a flexible laboratory building but also satisfy the highest demands for visual impact.
