Infrastructure project design of the roads and infrastructure outline planning for the area of Mercedesstraße and Martin-Schrenk-Weg in Stuttgart Germany


Part of the corporate culture

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in front of the gates of the Mercedes productions plant is an architectural highlight and a high-profile platform for prestigious DaimlerChrysler events. Complex negotiations were required with authorities in order to get the go-ahead for a project which is located in a mineral spa protection zone and close to a waste disposal site.
The geometrically curved double-helix structure fully exploits the technical potential of the architecturally impressive building. Manpower and cost stability – For the Owner, DaimlerChrysler, Drees & Sommer’s experience and performance with comparable prestigious projects were decisive. In view of the tough competition in the global automobile industry, assurance of project completion within budget had top priority.
To manage the complex flow of documents, Drees & Sommer set-up a sophisticated project communication tool which allowed the just-in-time use of both required drawings and building materials. The structure was completed in less than two years of construction time.



DaimlerChrysler’s sales and distribution organization in Germany has built the Mercedes-Benz Center – its new headquarters – in Bad Cannstatt, right outside the gates of the Untertürkheim plant in Stuttgart. The new building has an extensive showroom on three display floors with a delivery area, offices and a service area. The building also features the so-called marque core, a Corporate Identity element implemented for the first time in a building in Germany. The building is integrated into the new Mercedes-Benz Museum complex.
