New office building Eschborn in Germany

Jan 31, 2017
The Eschborn industrial park is slated to be home to the headquarters of various multinational corporations and government agencies.

As part of an effort to spur local economic development, two significant office buildings are being built in the southern part of Germany, one of which is the 'Bauteile, Management Circle und Zühlk', featuring more than 10,000 m² of total space and a car park for 200 vehicles.

Relying on its wide range of formwork and scaffolding systems, ULMA was able to provide perfectly-suited and cost-efficient solutions for every aspect of the project: VR table modular formworkaluminium CC-4 aluminium modular formworkORMA modular formwork, and F-4 MAX articulated column formwork were all used to form different components of the curved edges and S-shaped corridors. ORMA modular formwork was used to construct the walls of the building as well as the car park, where single-faced UCAB Trusses were also employed.

In this, as in all projects, safety played a critical role at every stage. The two-storey entrance was one of the many features requiring special attention in this regard. For the work undertaken at a height of 8 m, T-60 shoring towers were equipped with an intermediate level used as a working platform.
