Special rules for special buildings

Whether emergency lighting or emergency power supply, ventilation or smoke alarm systems – stadiums, railway stations, and parking garages require particular protection. We will help you to meet the administrative requirements. Whether it's the Waldbühne open-air stage in Berlin, a football stadium in Cottbus, or the canteen of a major company in Hamburg, indoors or out - in many large projects and "special buildings", the building regulations are not enough. Industrial buildings, skyscrapers, shopping malls, stadiums, and hospitals are subject to different rules. This is also true for hotels and parking garages. We help owners and operators to optimise the effectiveness and safety of technical installations.

TÜV NORD in stadiums: Safety in the spotlight

Our state-certified building law experts inspect the construction and retrofitting of electrical equipment and installations in Germany and abroad. For example, we consider the safety of the power supply and lighting in football stadiums and monitor floodlights and alarm and public address systems. Both according to building law and in accordance with their special building and inspection regulations – and taking into account the requirements of UEFA, European football’s governing body. Our other fields of activity:

  • Review of specifications/tender documents
  • Review of design and implementation planning
  • Support during construction with appointments, advice, opinions
  • Special solutions (e.g. wiring, protective fire separation)
  • Review of the appropriate implementation of the fire protection concept
  • Assistance in the development of concepts of selectivity
  • Safety monitoring of "temporary" technology in the construction period

Fire and Safety Concepts

We create fire and safety concepts for ventilation and electrical installations, and here we specialise in:

  • Fire alarm systems (e.g. fire control systems for elevators, ventilation shutdown systems)
  • Smoke and heat extraction systems, fire protection closures
  • Smoke extraction systems, pressure ventilation Systems
  • Fixed, automatic fire extinguishing systems and portable fire extinguishers
  • Automatic sliding doors in escape routes
  • Doors and gates for automatic closing of smoke and fire protection closures
  • Power-operated doors and electric door locks along escape routes
  • Lightning protection systems and surge protection

Other bases of our work include the model inspection regulations, piping systems regulations, and VDE guidelines (Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies). In particular, the series DIN VDE 0108, DIN VDE 0100 Part 710 (DIN VDE 0107), DIN VDE 0100 Part 551, DIN VDE 0510, taking into account building permits and approval as well as fire safety concept and certification.
