LMU Klinikum Munich

LMU Klinikum Munich

Top Class Electronic Equipment

No matter whether in the treatment and care of patients, in teaching or in the equipment of the individual research disciplines: In the future, the new LMU Klinikum Innenstadt will set standards in the medical sector far beyond the Bavarian capital. The (infra-)structural background for the new building on Ziemssen/Nußbaumstrasse is the consolidation of important clinical departments - internal medicine, surgery, emergency care and obstetrics - under one roof. The space and technical capacities are designed in such a way that around 70,000 outpatients and 15,000 inpatients can be treated or cared for annually on an area of 12,400 square meters.

Project description

The new building of the LMU Klinikum Innenstadt is considered an important component on the way to providing the best possible medical care for the Munich metropolitan area. To this end, it is expected to provide effective impetus in the areas of teaching and research, above all through its state-of-the-art technical equipment and extended opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.

Cost efficiency, extensive electrotechnical know-how in conjunction with an excellent local connection had secured Elektro Bachner the order. A further plus factor was a proven network of subcontractors with whom Elektro Bachner has been working successfully in many projects for many years. The clinic-typical, complex profile of requirements extended not only to the project coordination of the trades and sub-trades in connection with a precise implementation of the numerous individual tasks. Above all, it also involved a high degree of responsibility and reliability in implementation, especially for electrical installations that were carried out in the life-support sections of the hospital.

New clinic construction with Elektro Bachner – Responsibility as a principle!

The exceptionally high requirements for hospital equipment are primarily associated with applications in the fields of surgery and emergency medicine, i.e. mainly with the equipment of operating theaters and intensive care units. Here, on the one hand, a high level of redundancy in the power supply must be taken into account. On the other hand, the special focus is on the installation of a control and monitoring system with the aid of which malfunctions can be excluded as far as possible or their damage, if unavoidable, can be limited.

The power supply of the LMU Klinikum Innenstadt was set up with a high degree of redundancy by establishing five separate networks. The existing five ORs as well as the intensive care units were each double-protected via double feeds of the distributors. In the case of power failures, which in many respects can trigger life-threatening situations on site, a battery was available in the first and a generator in the second instance for the power supply. Should the generator fail to start in an exceptional case, the battery is able to keep all life-support equipment and apparatus in operation for one hour at least.

Full system monitoring for life-sustaining systems

The second pillar for safeguarding the life-support systems consisted of comprehensive monitoring of safety-relevant networks. This involved, among other things, all sockets in the IT network.These are controlled in such a way that immediately after a problem occurs, a corresponding error display appears on the panels used for this purpose.  The panels can also be used to control lights and darkening in individual rooms and to display error messages that arise when medical gases are used.

Lighting: Inside as well as outside

Elektro Bachner was contracted to supply and install interior and exterior lighting elements. This included the installation and removal of pole luminaires with LED spotlights, L and T luminaires, as well as ground spotlights and bollard luminaires.

Cable tray construction in all crafts

The construction of the cable routes in the corridors of the clinic was carried out across the board, i.e. also for other crafts. The main task was to keep escape routes clear to ensure free access. For this reason, the majority of the channels were installed in line with LAR.


Sustainability by using regenerative energies: A photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of the LMU Klinikum Innenstadt in cooperation with Bachner subsidiary Volthaus.


The equipping of ultra-modern clinics is probably one of the most demanding tasks for suppliers of electrotechnical components and services due to the large number and complexity of the individual services. In addition, during the construction of the LMU Klinikum Innenstadt, special spatial and time restrictions had to be accepted for the work on the construction site due to external circumstances (Covid 19). As a result, Elektro Bachner was on site with more than forty employees on some days to be able to reliably meet its own time targets.  

The high degree of commitment and professional competence with by which the tasks at the construction site were carried out despite extremely tight specifications convinced the client, the Staatliches Bauamt München 2, very much. In the meantime Elektro Bachner has been contracted with another major project, the extension of the Grünwald Clinic in Munich!
