CANTILEVERED WINGS



"Haus der Zukunft" ("House of the Future"), Berlin
The “Haus der Zukunft“ ("House of the Future") is prominently located in Berlin on the Spree between Reichstag, Central Station, and the Federal Chancellery and is currently under construction. Thereby a place will be created where exhibitions and events will show the importance of research and innovation for our future.  It will build a platform for dialogues between public, science, economy and politics. The architectural competition for the "Haus der Zukunft" was won by the architects Richter Musikowski from Berlin.

From the point of view of the structural design, the main challenge is presented by the cantilevered exhibition areas with their high load capacity requirements, in particular the the outer ends through the high loads from ceiling supports and façades. The cantilevered ceilings above the two entrance areas on the ground floor are suspeded from girders concealed in the roof via beam ties. The construction of the "Haus der Zukunft" is set to start in the first quarter of 2015, the handover of the building has been agreed for December 2016.

BRIDGE ON ZWEIBRÜCKENSTRASSE
HAMBURG

Bridge in Zweibrückenstraße, first bridge girder lifted in
Since January 2014, the new building of the bridge over the Zweibrückenstraße has been underway on the east side of the port city. The construction is an oblique-angled frame composite bridge with a span of 34 m with deep foundations on 150-gauge bored piles. The construction process is strongly influenced by staggered construction resulting from the maintenance of the traffic during the entire construction period. In one of these phases, on Saturday 14.03.2015, the two main eastern bridge girders were delivered and lifted into place using two mobile cranes. The installation began at 8.00 am and was completed in the early afternoon. In the further course of the weekend, at which the crossing point was completely blocked for public transport, further welding and assembly work followed. The engineering firm Schüßler-Plan is commissioned with both the object and structural planning of the bridge on Zweibrückenstraße as well as the site management and local site supervision. Completion is set for early 2016.

WEHRHAHN LINE DÜSSELDORF
DISMANTLING OF THE LAST WATER TRANSPORT LINES

The countdown has begun
On the night of 3 to 4 March 2015, the last overground water pipe routes of the new Düsseldorf urban rail line Wehrhahn were dismantled. After the completion of the subway station “Benrather Straße”, the line section on Breite Straße was dismantled which had, for five years, pumped the water from the building pit, which was up to 20 metres deep (and thus up to 12 metres below the normal groundwater level) into the nearby Kö-Graben, the channel that runs down the middle of Königsallee. With this dismantling, the last transport lines disappear from the cityscape, another visible sign of the relief of traffic congestion and the new urban design of Düsseldorf. The engineering firm Schüßler-Plan was commissioned with the planning of the major transport infrastructure project as the leading member of the Wehrhahn line engineering community.
