Structural steelwork 2013: heavyweights and giants

A lot of heavy loads have left the Rädlinger building yard in Cham this year. Loaded with overlong and enormous steel structures, the drivers of the low loaders had to work with precision over and over again.

Such large structures were developed, for example, for the job of a bridge over the Alz in Trostberg. The footbridge is 61 m long, 1.40 m high and 3.50 m wide. Each of the two box girders made from welded together metal sheets was brought to the site in two parts. The cold and the snow-covered ground provided difficult conditions for the installation in February.

The winter also made the installation of the steel structures for the construction of a new firefighting depot in Thierhaupten in Swabia difficult. A total of 50 t steel were used for roof and façade construction over an area of 1,000 m². The difficulty lay in the architecturally challenging shape of the building with a vehicle depot and hose tower.

Other projects this year included roof structures for the new sports hall of Grünwald Grammar School and the Glückauf Hall in Peissenberg. The steel girders each had a length of 31 m, weighed between 12 and 27 t and, in the case of the Glückauf Hall, were given an additional fire protection coating. For the renovation of the underground garage “Am Frauenfeld” in Oberschleissheim, the Rädlinger Structural Steelwork Department was also awarded the contract for the production and installation of supports and steel sheets for ceiling and underlay structures. Steel posts for fixing bat protection walls and torsion bars, with the help of which noise protection walls and fixing posts can be attached on bridges, also left the production halls.

Other orders for structural steelwork that the Rädlinger Structural Steelwork Department received were for the construction of new painting workshops at the Vocational Training and Technology Centre (BTZ) Regensburg, the construction of a new school swimming pool in Altdorf and the construction of a steel staircase with a landing and canopy for a Continental logistics hall.
