Construction work in the Olympic Hall

Only a few days after the motocross riders presented their daring stunts on the sandy course in the Olympic Hall in Munich in the X Games, it was transformed into a huge construction site. Large excavators and other construction vehicles moved into the sports and event arena via the major access road.

By order of Stadtwerke München, Josef Rädlinger Ingenieurbau GmbH has undertaken the extension of the existing hall floor and the installation of a new floor slab. With the extension of the hall floor, the employees also removed the cooling pipes for an ice surface. The client rejected the plans for a new floor slab with cooling pipes during the costing phase, after weighing up the costs and benefits. Instead of this, the client decided in favour of a reinforced concrete industrial floor slab. In addition, cable conduits with removable covers were installed, which are to be used for the laying of cables for events. Furthermore, a sprinkler tank was formed from the existing shot put pit (approx. 21.00 x 16.00 x 3.50 m). Designed for heavy loads of 40 t, this modification using prefabricated reinforced concrete was produced with a cast-in-place concrete extension.

The civil engineering work is only part of the mammoth renovations of the Olympic Hall that are to last six years, until 2019. Every year, there is only the small time window from July to the start of October in which no events are taking place in the hall and renovation measures can be carried out. The top requirement for the construction work was, therefore, absolute adherence to deadlines. After approximately two and a half months of construction time, Rädlinger Ingenieurbau was also able to hand this job over to the client punctually and free from defects.
