The modernisation of House 5 was conducted in compliance with the specifications of the KFW-Efficiency House for listed buildings. Energetic refurbishment and extension in a listed building. This project was supported by funding from the European Union and the state of Brandenburg.

Solar energy panels were added to the roof of House 5 to generate clean energy for the school. The produced energy is only used for selfconsumption. This project was supported by funding from the European Union and the state of Brandenburg.

BBIS is happy to announce the renovation of the school’s ‘House 5’ is completed. This essential project allows us to continue welcoming more students to our school and at the same time provide modern, state-of-the-art learning spaces for our community.
