The future German headquarters of the TOTAL oil company, the TOUR TOTAL in Berlin, was officially completed in time and budget today by the CA Immo real estate company and handed over to the tenant.

The building opposite the main railway station is the first in a series of construction projects by CA Immo and other investors in the new Europacity urban quarter.

Built as a green building, the TOUR TOTAL consists of 16 office floors with a gross floor area of approximately 18,000 sqm (193,750 ft²). The building has more than 90 spaces for bicycles and 240 parking spaces for cars. Thanks to the proximity of the main railway station, it is ideally connected to the public transport. TOTAL Deutschland GmbH will ultimately concentrate the German business of the energy company on 12 floors with 500 employees. Four floors will be leased to other companies.

For the construction management CA Immo appointed omniCon, their specialized construction management subsidiary. The Berlin office of Barkow Leibinger was responsible for the architecture.
