ALPINE to build office building in Germany

FCC's Austrian subsidiary ALPINE will build new head offices for the German insurance company AachenMünchener in Aachen.

The project includes the construction of four buildings and two underground car parks in the centre of Aachen, allowing the company's entire staff to work under one roof. The heart of the new building complex will be a seven-storey building. All parts of the complex will be connected and accessible via a second-floor walkway.

The complex will be surrounded by a park, is to have direct access to the train station and will be a major improvement in Aachen's urban development.

Due to the limited space available in the city centre, excavations will be protected with temporary retaining walls, foundation piles and a special shoring system.

ALPINE began operating in Munich in 1989. With ten subsidiaries and more than 750 employees in Germany, Poland and the United Arab Emirates, ALPINE guarantees top quality on a continuous basis in executing highly complex construction projects, in Austria and abroad. The company's activities span diverse fields and include building (Allee Hotel in Frankfurt and the Canadian Embassy in Berlin), civil engineering, underground mining, and the construction of power plants and bridges. As a general contractor and specialist in building stadiums, ALPINE completed the Allianz Arena (Munich) in just two and a half years.

ALPINE operates worldwide. With approximately 3.3 billion euro in construction revenues and close to 14,300 employees, ALPINE is Austria's second-largest construction group. In 2007, ALPINE landed new contracts worth over 3 billion euro. FCC acquired 80% of Alpine in 2006 as part of the 2005-2008 Strategic Plan promoted by the company's leading shareholder, Esther Koplowitz.
