ENGIE automates John Cranko School in Stuttgart

ENGIE takes over building automation for energy-efficient operation of complex plant technology

The John Cranko Ballet School, founded in 1971 by John Cranko, sets architectural and technical standards with its new building. In terms of construction, the focus is on eight ballet studios, a large rehearsal stage and the boarding area with kitchen and canteen. At the heart of the building technology is a heat pump with five different heat sources and heat sinks, including a 1000 m³ seasonal ice storage tank. ENGIE plays the key role in the energy-efficient operation of the complex plant technology with the building automation system.
