New company headquarters as a combined office and production building

The circuit-board specialist was founded in 2012 and has since grown dynamically with innovative developments. The new company headquarters was to communicate this profile in a modern and original form language – functionality, a sense of realism and budget discipline were at the same time unconditional parameters. The result: Exactly seven months after the first spade of earth was turned, a relaxed client and his team of 13 employees were able to move in and commence trouble-free production.

New company headquarters as administrative and logistics centre

The high-tech logistics specialist, originally founded as a local courier service in Chemnitz in 1993, was looking for a building concept which would not only meet all operational requirements, but also convey the visionary self-perception of the company. This vision was served with an exclusive, futuristically timeless “spaceship” as a hub for cross-docking and high-availability logistics. The €2.5 million investment, covering a total area of 8,500 m², conveys a clear message to customers: ECL is active day and night and with a modern fleet on their behalf.

Steel beams and supports for the stabilisation or translocation of facades, gables and other building parts worthy of preservation

Historical buildings are essentially irreplaceable, but should at the same time allow use in accordance with present-day needs. Conversion often requires extensive removal of the internal structures. The reliable securing of a listed facade ensures investors the greatest possible freedom to build. Special steel constructions provide temporary or even permanent support – and complete parts of a building can even be shifted to a new location with the aid of a “transport cage”.

Steel construction for the membrane canopy over the Schottenstein National Campus for the Archaeology of Israel

The membrane (50 x 40 m) which spans the inner courtyard of the campus complex in the form of a funnel is held at the corners by four V-shaped steel supports, each of which is 9 metres long. As the dimensions of the membrane fluctuate with the temperature, the corner supports could not be designed with fixed anchors. Instead, they rest on floating spheroidal bearings, with tensioning cables providing for lateral stability. The construction comprises a total of 988 individual components.

Steel construction for the membrane facade of the Coca-Cola Beatbox installed in the forefront of the Olympic Games in London

The Coca-Cola Pavilion in the Olympic Park was conceived as a combination of architecture and musical instrument. Its facade comprised 230 ETFE membrane cushions, each 5 m² in size, which were interlocked for stability and in part served as interactive sound elements which could be “played” by visitors. The task was to design retaining and jointing elements for the aluminium-framed cushions. The extremely complex spatial geometry of the individual surfaces dictated a challenging trial assembly.

Column-free production hall with a 43-metre span

For the construction of a new production hall for non-woven fabrics, a width of 43 metres was to be spanned without intermediate columns. A classic trussed design would have required a girder height of approx. 2.20 metres and would have been very costly. The more economical alternative chosen was to use corrugated web beams, whose lighter weight and reduced height of just 1.10 metres translate into a significant cost advantage. The tapered ends, furthermore, permit optimum utilisation of the roof height over the whole width of the hall.

Production hall alongside a lower existing building

A new hall with a roof-mounted crane was to be erected as a direct extension of an existing production building. Due to the height difference, however, there was a risk of excessive snow accumulation in the dip of the roof, which would have required cost-intensive strengthening of the original building structure. Solution: The new hall roof extends approx. 5 metres over the old roof, and thereby eliminates the snow trap. A further challenge: The buildings stand right up to the site perimeter, which meant that all construction work had to be performed from the inside.

Production hall meeting enhanced stability demands

At an altitude of 625 metres in the Erzgebirge Mountains, the site of the new building is assigned to the highest German snow load zone 3. At the same time, a 32-tonne overhead crane system was required for the CNC machining of heavy precision workpieces. Taking into account the enhanced structural demands which result from the combination of these two load aspects, a supporting structure comprising vertical and horizontal trusses achieved a cost-optimised solution for the 25-metre span of the new hall (length 60 m, height 11.5 m).

The solution was to design a supporting structure with 1.60‑metre corrugated web beams. A comparable trussed structure would have required a beam height of approx. 2.90 metres, adding not only to the weight, but also to the costs, e.g. for transportation.
