IKEA celebrated their roofing festival for the latest furniture House in Kaarst on the first of February with 470 guests in business and politics. The shell is expected to be completed next week but the opening has been moved to late autumn due to extreme winter weather. The new furniture store is the world’s most sustainable IKEA and will be the standard for all following locations. Under the concept “More Sustainable Store“, it makes particular use of environmentally friendly technologies, natural materials, plenty of natural light in the product exhibition areas, roof terraces and a landscaped outdoor area.

IKEA has invested approximately €100 million in their new store consisting of 25,500 square meters.  It also provides jobs for 320 employees. Emutec® GmbH is very pleased and prides itself on this project to be the partner responsible for all technical building equipment.
