Opening Ceremony

Official opening ceremony of the Elementar headquarters

Within only 14 Months, the new headquarters from Elementar was build. Thanks to this blog, we had the opportunity to watch very closely what’s going on the construction site and how our new workplace developed. Before the focus of the blog will lead to other topics, there is one highlight, we need to report about: the official opening ceremony!

Last week, Elementar invited external partners to celebrate the official opening together. Because we want to invite our most important partners, the festivities took place on two days. The guest list was very diversified and consists of politicians and association members, customers and suppliers, neighbors as well as construction partners. The varied program was opened by Elementar Director Dr. Hans Peter Sieper, who was giving an inside in Elementars history, the reasons for the construction of the new headquarters and the actual situation of the business. Furthermore, Country Commissioner Erich Pipa and Major Jörg Muth contributed to the program with a personal speech.

During the following panel discussion regarding the basis and the design of the new building, owners, architects, construction manager, consultant and artist discussed about the sustainable building concept, architectural design, logistics and building art. A so called “Science Slam” was another highlight of the program. Three young scientists were presenting their field of research – in a preferably simple and entertaining way. Of course, a company tour was offered to all guests after the official program. This was a great opportunity for them to get an insight how the processes at Elementar are interlocked and what’s the special characteristics of the stations.

The feedback was very positive and the opening ceremony was mentioned by different newspapers. We are very happy about that – that shows that the effort payed off. :) A big thank for the nice opening ceremony goes to all of our employees – everybody took part in the preparations and therefore caused the success of the event!

PS: For this post, Fabienne and I were live at the red carpet to report for you. Unfortunately, even the best prepared marketing girls could put one’s foot in it and wear the same outfit on the red carpet… :)

During the last weeks we reported about the completion and official opening of the Elementar-Straße itself. Unfortunately there were still some earth works left to do at that time. Bad weather caused some delays within the planting activities, which needed to be finished before it could be paved in front of the main entrance. Now this work is finished and you could reach us comfortably and easily by our main entrance. Just drive to:

 

Elementar Analysensysteme GmbH

Elementar-Straße 1

63505 Langenselbold

Germany

 

There you could directly park your car in front of the building. In case that you are not sure, if you are on track, just look for the five colorful Elementar flags, which are derived from the colors in our logo. They are now pointing everybody the right way. :)

Development of the outdoor area - fountains

Development of the outdoor area

We recently reported a lot about the progress on the Elementar- Straße, but that was not the only work, which was done during the last weeks. The outdoor area is developing fast, too. In the meantime you could get an impression, how the finished outdoor area will look like. Even through the planting of the trees, everything looks much more friendly and inviting now. :)

As usual, we were diligently taking pictures of the changes. We collected them, because a lot of other topics need to be done, too. Here is a summary of the progress of the last weeks:

Opening of the Elementar-Straße

Opening of the Elementar-Straße

As Fabienne reported in the last weeks, the expansion of the Elementar-Straße was developing very quickly. The ca. 50 meter long street and the new exit of the roundabout are finished now. For the official opening, the mayor of Langenselbold, Jörg Muth and the director of the building authority, Axel Planiczky visited us for the official opening. The weather wasn’t that nice for the opening, but the officials from Langenselbold and the management board of Elementar are proud that the new street is finished now.

After the opening Mr. Muth and Mr. Planiczky enjoyed a tour throught the building, which is filled with live since the middle of September. We thank the mayor and the city of Langenselbold for the good cooperation. It was a great help to set up the new headquarters in within only 14 months. The street name is a good indication for the good relationship between Langenselbold and Elementar.

Some earth works need to be done right before the entrance, but it should be finished within the next two weeks. Then our visitors could reach us directly via the nice main entrance:

Elementar-Straße: update

Or: Why the police was here to support the roadworks

As I reported last week, the roadworks on Elementar-Straße are still in progress. Last Friday the police was here to support the asphalting by regulating the traffic in the adjacent traffic circle. This was necessary since heavy equipment was used to pave the street, temporarily constraining the traffic flow. With the police’s help, the works could be performed without any incidents. I even climbed up the roof to have the best view and to take pictures for the following picture gallery. Enjoy!

Elementar-Straße is being paved

Elementar-Straße is being paved

The works at the building’s grounds still continue: Right now, the Elementar-Straße is being paved by busy road workers. The Elementar-Straße connects the L3445 with the Elementar property, leading visitors to the main entrance. Although it is raining, the roadworks quickly proceed. You can even see the hot asphalt steaming in the cold October air.

Until the roadworks are finished, the property is only accessible from Carl-Friedrich-Benz-Straße at the backside of the building. As soon as the Elementar-Straße is fit for traffic, we’ll let you know!

Street sign "Elementar-Straße"

Elementar-Straße: our street sign is up

By now at the latest it is official: the street sign of the Elementar-Straße has been set up this morning. Yes – the street was named after Elementar, of which we are very proud. Since September 12th, our new billing address and address for visitors is

Elementar Analysensysteme GmbH
Elementar-Straße 1
63505 Langenselbold

You can also find us on Google Maps!

In Germany, street signs don’t look the same in every city. Here in Langenselbold you’ll find blue signs with white font, whereas in Berlin, for example, street signs are white with black font. Coming from the Autobahn and the L3445, the Elementar-Straße is the first exit of the traffic circle, leading you to Elementar’s visitors’ entrance. The construction works are still in progress, but the Elementar-Straße will be ready soon.
