BVB Youth House

In the spring of 2014, the football club Borussia Dortmund 09 e.V. in the German National League opened a new football boarding school that offers accommodation for up to 22 young talents. Due to the intensive training and sports activities, special emphasis was placed on living quality.

In addition to common areas, the building has 22 single rooms with comfortable shower bathrooms tiled in mosaic - naturally in the club colours of black and yellow. The tiling work was carried out by the tiling company "Steinart" of the city of Lünen. The tiling professionals used the complete Saint-Gobain Weber system of installation products for wet areas.

Premium products were used for the Borussia youngsters: the mosaic was bonded with weber.xerm 854, a low-dust, flexible and lightweight tile adhesive with very high stability on walls.

For further tiling work, the flexible thin-bed and medium-bed tile adhesive with low CO footprint weber.xerm 850 BlueComfort was used, among other products. This innovative laying mortar protects the environment because its production saves considerable amounts of CO compared to conventional tile adhesives.
