Crossbeam covering for the corporate headquarters of ZF in Friedrichshafen
The striking new headquarters building is an architectural ensemble of several different elements. As an interface between two elements, the planning included a covering that serves as a bracing and attachment component and represents the company’s Africa and India divisions. It was built in several sections. However, it was only capable of bearing a load after being connected to the actual building.
Very heavy temporary loads needed to be supported in the course of construction, which we did by using stationary scaffold props around the atrium and a layer of crossgirders and stationary scaffold props in the basement.
