Office building with certificate

In the new office building in Ludwigshafen BASF is using the powerful insulation material Neopor® and thus fulfills its own high requirements for sustainable construction.


The flat roofs of building D105 are located at different levels. This is a flat roof area on a lower level between transparent facades. Employees have a lovely view of the areas, which will later be landscaped.

The new office complex of BASF SE in Ludwigshafen/Germany is not only intended for representation purposes, but should also reflect the aspiration of the company – to contribute to a sustainable future. Consequently, the flat roofs of the building incorporated insulation material based on the raw material developed and produced by BASF: Neopor®.

The properties of the high performance insulation material have made a major contribution to the sustainability of the building and the positive certification by DGNB. The material improves energy efficiency while minimising construction costs:

  • Low thermal conductivity reduces CO2 emissions and running costs
  • New flame-retardant material Polymeric-FR has a better environmental profile than its predecessors
  • Neopor® fulfils static requirements thanks to its high compressive strength
  • Owing to its long durability, Neopor® contributes to sustainable construction
  • Neopor® also offers numerous design options – a clear benefit for planners
