Final spurt at elevated garage of Fa. KNAPP AG
Almost 10 weeks before the planned opening, there are not many workers to be seen, the building is a system garage of the company. Goldbeck-Rhomberg. But it is something to be proud of. The 13,500 m² building, which will provide space for 660 cars, was erected in just under 11 months. In addition, 30 e-charging stations, outdoor parking and a canopy for 200 bicycles and 40 motorcycles will also be created. During the 6-month installation period, around 1,100 tons of steel were moved and 1,800m3 of concrete processed.
The parking garage has a lot more to offer as well. The facade will be covered with facade panels in green tones and climbing plants, the roof will be an extensive green roof.
It is also a special project for Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH, responsible for this project as general planner and as local construction supervisor. It was planned completely 3-dimensional with Revit down to the last detail. Using online presentation based on gaming software, the entire 3D model can be loaded and freely walked on any device. Thus, future users can already discover the “best” parking space for them in the digital twin.
