Building association, Winnenden Baugenossenschaft eG

The building association, Winnenden Baugenossenschaft eG (BGW), has been active in the housing and real estate industry for 75 years. It is not just a building association with heart, soul and a great sense of responsibility but also offers a comprehensive package of services relating to housing. BGW offers the right residential property for every phase of life: the one or two-room apartment for singles moving out of their parents' house, the two to four-room apartment for the young family or the assisted living apartment for older members.

In 2021/22, Baugenossenschaft Winnenden invested 12 million euros (excluding land costs) in a new building with 44 apartments on Eichendorffweg. This was the largest project for the building association in recent years. BGW built what is referred to in Germany as a KfW Effizienzhaus 55 for the project and had solar panels installed on the roof to generate electricity for the tenants. The association also built an Effizienzhaus 55 at Hungerbergstr. 105, featuring seven apartments and an underground car park.

«The resivo online system is a real added value for us. The software interface is self-explanatory and easy to use.»

dormakaba solution for Baugenossenschaft Winnenden

When it came to the locking system for both buildings, emphasis was placed on a modern system without the use of keys where possible. BGW chose the resivo cloud solution from dormakaba, which ensures easy access management for buildings. With resivo, all access permissions can be flexibly organised for the housing company via the web admin portal. This means you can conveniently manage and assign access permissions for common doors such as entrance doors, doors to the underground car park, to common rooms or for third-party companies for services in technical rooms, all from the comfort of the office.

The in-house electrician installed c-lever pro electrical fittings on the doors to the common rooms, digital cylinders on the doors to the technical rooms and 90 01 BLE electronic readers as radio components on the building entrance doors. There are door closers on all building doors and fire doors. The escape route security is also integrated: three escape door terminals were installed, e.g. from the underground car park to the stairwell.

The system's unique separation of sovereignty enables a guaranteed separation between manager and tenant. The resivo access management system offers many advantages for the BGW: more efficient processes, time and cost savings and easier handling. “The tenants are also getting on well with the system. The system is running stable. I am very satisfied with resivo and the collaboration with dormakaba,” emphasises Jochen Albrecht, Construction Group Manager at BGW Baugenossenschaft Winnenden eG.
