New Light in Old Walls
No fewer than 3,500 new lights illuminate the lecture halls and common spaces in Duborg-Skolen (the Duborg Danish school) in Flensburg, and they were installed quickly and safely using the WINSTA® Pluggable Connection System from WAGO.
Students who attend the Duborg-Skolen can consider themselves privileged: Their degrees are recognized in both Germany and Denmark, and the Danish government also invests a great deal of money into its schooling and educational system. The Danes believe that successful education – both teaching and learning – should be a positive experience – a joy – and that the environment makes a significant contribution to this success.
However, by the end of the 1990s, this environment was getting further and further out of balance: The premises of Duborg-Skolen were designed for approximately 600 students, but almost twice that number attended in 2007. For that reasons, in 2005 the Association of Danish Schools had already decided to build A. P. Møller Skolen, a new college-preparatory secondary school, in Schleswig and to upgrade Duborg-Skolen in Flensburg from the ground up. In addition to comprehensive structural work, both inside and outside of the buildings, the plan included installation of a communication standard based on KNX/EIB for the building automation. The existing IT infrastructure was to be permanently expanded, and all the classrooms, common spaces and administrative office spaces were to be updated with contemporary lighting, for a total investment of around 13 million euros.
