CaixaBank and KfW IPEX-Bank are jointly providing HOCHTIEF financing for the interim construction financing of the PPP project Frankfurt (Germany) judiciary center. The project volume is in the low three-digit million range and includes the parallel construction of two new judicial buildings in the Frankfurt a. M. city centre, with a planned completion in mid-2027. The commissioning party is the state of Hesse, which has concluded project contracts with HOCHTIEF.

The two new buildings with a gross floor area of about 38,500 square metres will house several courts, public prosecutors and judicial authorities. As the new buildings are built on the site of existing buildings, no additional space will be sealed for the new buildings.

During operation, the new buildings will meet the requirements for an efficiency building 55 and thus have a positive impact on the environment and climate, as energy consumption is reduced and thus decarbonisation is promoted. HOCHTIEF installs large-scale photovoltaic systems on the usable roofs. The houses are supplied with district heating, which is fed into the rooms via modern heating and cooling ceilings.

HOCHTIEF will manage the buildings for 30 years and the state of Hesse is a tenant during this time. Thereafter, the property, including the buildings, will again be fully owned by the state of Hesse.
