An expression of our
concern for people and the environment:
the legero united campus.
A place for meeting and dialogue.
Welcome to the campus. This is where we develop ideas and put them into practice. Up to 350 legero united team members find an inspiring workplace to drive the development of the company and its three brands legero, superfit and Think!. With its sustainable construction and design, our campus headquarters stands for the values that have shaped our company for 150 years. It impresses not only with its architecture, but also with its key figures: On a total net floor space of 8,500m², there is 7,100m² of office space, the company’s own sample production and the “shoemakers kitchen” – the company’s in-house restaurant, where regional ingredients are cooked for the staff every day.
A geothermal system for heating and cooling in combination with district heating and the use of well water, exclusively sustainable building materials and sophisticated building services ensure that the headquarters’ carbon footprint is 28 per cent lower than that of a modern standard building in operation: this corresponds to a CO2 saving of around 48 tonnes per year.
We think and act sustainably.
For the sake of people and the environment.
The ring-shaped building complex of our campus is an architectural exclamation mark. It is EMAS-certified and its sustainable, durable and high-quality construction has already won several awards:
- The Austrian Society for Sustainable Real Estate, ÖGNI, has certified the campus with Platinum and awarded it the Crystal for Social Sustainability.
- The Baukultur Steiermark association recognised its combination of functionality, sustainability and design with the prestigious GerambRose architecture prize.
- 2021 we received the Styrian Timber Construction Award in the category of commercial buildings. The jury recognised the building as a constructively and architecturally outstanding project that combines functionality and architecture to create an invigorating, inspiring working environment.
