A symbolic breaking of ground July 14 opened construction of the

which create a pleasant environment and space for new ideas.”

Innovation Tower will dominate Göppingen’s skyline as one of our
tallest buildings,” said the town’s mayor, Guido Till. “We all look
forward to enjoying the building’s modern and dynamic architecture.
However, Schuler is also making an important statement about Göppingen
as a business location and playing a major role in strengthening it.”
The new building will also house the Schuler company restaurant and
the top floor will be used for meetings, with several conference rooms.
The office concept has been designed and implemented in accordance
