Raitenhaslach Abbey – renovation and conversion into Technical University of Munich Science & Study Center

Project description

Elektro Kreutzpointner provided considerable support for a new vision for the Science & Study Center Raitenhaslach near Burghausen as a unique seminar centre based on monastic tradition and excellent research: From May 2014 to May 2016, Elektro Kreutzpointner equipped the entire former "Prelate’s Wing” of the abbey complex, including the baroque ceremonial hall, the “Steinerner Saal”, with a complete electrical system. With a total of 1,000 m2, the centre offers TU Munich’s scientists and students, as well as external users, a conference room for up to 190 people in the historic ballroom (“Aula Maior”), as well as seminar rooms of various sizes. The historical structure remains unchanged. The various considerations involved in preserving a historical monument presented Elektro Kreutzpointner with a unique challenge, which we were able to overcome with impressive results.


The Raitenhaslach Science & Study Center was officially inaugurated in June 2016. It represents a prestigious venue for international seminars, symposia and conferences, and is managed by the Technical University of Munich. Kreutzpointner’s Building Services Engineering division performed the electrical engineering works to fit out five seminar rooms plus a ballroom and two study rooms on the first floor, and another five seminar rooms on the second floor. There is also a video conference room on the ground floor, other spaces for banquets or coffee breaks, a reception area, the “Red” lounge on the first floor for cultural events, and the “Pope Room” as a state room with a museum-like character. While the seminar rooms can accommodate a maximum of 30 attendees, depending on seating plans, the baroque “Steinerne Saal” can fit up to 190 participants.


An excellent example of the many electrical engineering “highlights” of the Kreutzpointner contract was the installation of special custom-made LED light fittings in the baroque “Steinerner Saal” ballroom. After installation, they were concealed behind the ceiling cornice, and can be extended with a motor when required.
