Description of project

As subcontractor of merz Kley Partner GmbH (timber work) we were commissioned with the calculation of the reinforced concrete parts.

The complex of the refuse collecting centre Lauterach comprises a main building and an adjoining building, which are connected by a protective wall. The main building is 97m long and approximately 23m wide, the height amounts to 9,80m above ground level. The adjoining building is used for storing garden residue and has a size of: 36m x 6m x 9m.

In order to reach the different altitude between the container pitch and the unloading area cantilever walls are arranged around the building and along the bicycle ramp. As the sufficiently firm ground only lies several meters underneath the terrain, the loads are diverted over lean concrete slots respectively over shaft foundations to this layer. The roof construction‘s transferring loads of the main building are made of wood (planned by MKP) and lead to the west and east side of the retaining wall.

The adjoining building too is founded over lean concrete slots. The rear wall with vertical ribs as tee beam girders is clamped in the foundations. The storage area for the garden residues is covered by a cantilever roof made of precast concrete parts.

Description of tasks

  • Development of static calculation and dimensioning of the reinforced concrete parts and the foundation slots
  • Drafting of reinforcement plans for solid construction
