Renovation of two floors and conversion of a third floor as temporary quarters for the German consulate general
The German consulate general is situated in the 15-storey Höchst House, built in 1974 in the south of Mumbai. At present is the consulate accommodated on the 10th floor. The pass and visa centre are being outsourced. In the future, the consulate will take over the completely renovated 10th floor. The pass and visa centre will move in in the 1st floor of the building. To obtain full clearance during construction works, the consulate will temporarily move in in the purposely converted 9th floor of the building. The construction works are carried out by local development companies in a very high standard. The challenge consists of, amongst other things, in the implementation of partially German standards (fire-safety, security etc.) through local companies. Moreover, the whole building - built in Indian standard - should be integrated in the overall concept when it comes to safety standards (escape routes, fire alarm system, etc.).
