Wacker Chemie AG opened its new corporate headquarters in Munich. The roughly 18,000-square-meter building in Munich’s Werksviertel District was designed by Danish architecture firm C.F. Møller reportedly using the latest in sustainable building technology. The office offers a flexible working environment for approximately 600 employees on five floors. The company says it aiming for the internationally recognized LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) at the highest level–platinum.

Many WACKER products, particularly silicones and polymers, were used in the construction project. The lobby includes a specially designed reception desk featuring polished polysilicon in a silicon resin matrix. WACKER’s pension fund bought the new property in 2022, and while WACKER will be using most of the building itself, it will also sublet some of the office space.
