A45 Eisern valley bridge

Replacement construction of the Eisern valley bridge – A45 is progressing.
Here you can see the concreting of the roadway slab superstructure south cycle 2.
64 tons of reinforcing steel and 9 tons of prestressing steel had to be installed for the carriageway slab.
A total of 430m³ of concrete was installed in 11 hours.
This required 12 concrete mixing trucks that were constantly in circulation.

New building for the Dresden University School

The state capital Dresden is planning to build a new university school with new educational concepts for over 1,000 students.
The special feature of the project is the integration of the existing GDR type school into the new buildings.
For this purpose, the architectural design by ARGE Hartmann+Helm / Junk&Reich from Weimar stipulates that the existing building will be converted and one storey added. At the same time, the existing building is embedded in three individual new buildings, resulting in a complex, holistic school building.
The challenges in the area of structural planning were at least as varied.
For example, the increase increases the loads that are entered into the existing foundation, which means that they have to be upgraded.
The cafeteria is located on the ground floor of a new building. In order to enable a column-free construction, long-span wall-like beams are built on the upper floors.
In the area of new buildings there is also subsoil that is susceptible to settlement.
We as IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG are very proud to be able to support this complex project with our expertise in the area of structural planning.

The structural engineers from IGS INGENIEURE GmbH & Co. KG visit the Pollmeier company in Creuzburg.

On an exciting day, the production and use of construction beech made from laminated veneer lumber was explained in particular through a lecture and factory tour.
Now it’s time to put what we’ve learned into practice in our timber construction projects.

einBlick #75
 

WE WERE THERE!
Since 2011, guests from engineering practice at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Bauhaus University Weimar have been reporting on current projects in the “einBlick” lecture series in order to provide students, employees and anyone interested with impressions of the working lives of civil engineers and to show possible career prospects .
Our employees M. Sc. Constanze Matthus, Dr.-Ing. Christiane Ost and Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Münch gave an excellent presentation of the current projects which they are managing in our company.

Thank you very much for that.

Construction for the expansion of the Rhein-Sieg-Gymnasium in Skt. Augustin

Due to the return of G8 to G9 and the expansion to a 5-year high school, a new building is created in Skt. Augustin for around € 25 million.
The new building primarily integrates specialist cabinets, learning clusters and learning landscapes as well as a cafeteria.
A roof garden is created on the flatter part of the building, which is intensely greened and thus, in addition to use as a school garden, is also designed as a interim surface.
As IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG, we are proud to contribute to this new building structure for the students.

Double roundabout at the Leinefelde (Milchhof) junction as part of the OU Kallmerode

The services we provide on the project are construction management and local construction supervision.

Press release from DEGES German Unity Trunk Road Planning and Construction GmbH:
In connection with the renovation of the Leinefelde junction on the B 247, we would like to inform you as follows:

After four months of construction, the double roundabout at the Leinefelde junction will be opened to traffic on Monday, November 20th, around 12 p.m. The release also includes the exit from the B 247 to the street "Birkunger Straße" in the direction of A 38 and - coming from the direction of Birkungen - the entrance from "Birkunger Straße" to the B 247.

With the opening of the double roundabout, the state road 3080 (former B 247) is now finally connected to "Birkunger Straße". The connection was initially made provisionally via the south industrial area when the Kallmerode bypass was opened to traffic on December 7, 2022.

The expansion and new construction of the access ramps north of the B 247, including a roundabout, a bridge over the Ohne and a retaining wall, are still proceeding according to plan. During the construction period, "Birkunger Straße" between the streets "Lisztstraße/Birkunger Straße" roundabout and the new double roundabout will remain completely closed to motorized traffic. "Birkunger Straße" in this area can be used for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as for residents north of the Ohne. The conversion of the Leinefelde junction is necessary because the planned Leinefelde western section (L 3080n) is expected to result in a significant increase in traffic numbers in the area of the junction, meaning that traffic performance in this area must be increased.

According to current planning, the work should be completed by the end of 2024. The expected total costs for converting the Leinefelde junction are almost six million euros.

Completion of the shell of the KITA Riegelsberg

For the hybrid building of the daycare center with a mixture of reinforced concrete and wood, the last roof elements could now be laid and the shell of the building thus completed.
The building has 2 offset floors, which results in a partial basement and a cantilever.
The foundation of the basement as well as the overhanging first floor was solved by means of high-ductility driven piles in connection with wall-like beams due to the poorly load-bearing subsoil. Therefore, the basement integrated into the slope was designed as a reinforced concrete structure.
The first floor is realized as a pure timber construction with BSP walls and BSP ceilings in visible quality.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG were allowed to take over all service phases of the structural design for this future-oriented building project for the children.

Topping-out ceremony for GSM 2 extension

In early summer, the shell of the extension to the Melsungen Comprehensive School was completed with the topping-out ceremony.
Here, a 3-story solid structure was connected to the existing school building.
The transition takes place on the upper floor via a bridge construction.
Architecturally, the new building is characterized by bright and open floor plans in combination with appealing exposed concrete surfaces.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG was allowed to be responsible for the structural design of another educational building.

New construction of fire and rescue station 3 in Kassel

Fire and rescue station 3 is being built in Kassel-Waldau by the summer of 2026, which will house not only the professional fire department and rescue service, but also disaster control and the volunteer fire department.
According to current statements, a total of around 60 million euros will be invested to ensure the critical infrastructure.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG are proud to be involved in the structural design and building physics of this important project.
