In Berlin Mitte, a striking old building has been restored and modernized from the ground up. It is the only remaining wing of the former, famous Hertzog department store, which survived the Allied bombing during the last world war. The former Hertzog department store, founded in 1839, was the largest department store ensemble in Berlin. Engineers from Ruß Ingenieure AG had the very demanding task of supervising the tenant fit-out in the technical building services departments and ensuring high quality in this construction project. Special requirements for the protection of historical monuments had to be taken into account.
