NCT Dresden

National Center for Tumor Diseases


It constitutes an essential component of the Oncology Campus at Dresden University Hospital: The NCT combines interdisciplinary cancer research and therapy extending across four floors and over 3,000 m² of floor space. The building was equipped by the Schneider Group with aluminium mullion and transom facades extending over an area of more than 1,200 m² including external venetian blinds. In the new building, completed in 2020, around 200 scientists and doctors are conducting research, including the development of robotic and computer-assisted systems for cancer surgery.

The NCT research centre is characterised by the lucky clover. Discreet design elements adorn the on-site metal facade as well as the interior furnishings in the form of a lucky clover. The rooms, each with their own individual design, are connected by a spacious two-storey hall which, by means of the lounge areas, roof terrace and bistro, creates space for scientists, doctors, patients and visitors to meet.

The exterior walls of the research building are clad with aluminium mullion-transom facades. On the ground floor, the slightly recessed glass facade helps open up the building’s appearance. The new building adjoins the existing facility via a two-storey connecting wing. The manufacture and installation of the glass lamella windows was performed in close consultation with the company that supplied the metal facade. In addition to the aluminium mullion and transom facade on the upper floors, the glass lamella windows and the generous aluminium mullion and transom facade on the ground floor, our services also included the provision of other elements such as a vestibule, door elements made of aluminium and steel, as well as venetian blind systems and revolving door drives.
