The extensive expertise of Waagner-Biro in refurbishment/modernisation is reflected in the eye-catching design of the entrance area in front of the building and the glazed courtyard, which forms a middle ground between a roof and a zigzag-shaped facade.
The challenge of this project was to combine a visually pleasing and transparent glass structure with the requirements for a bomb-proof design. In order to cope with all technical requirements as well as the aesthetic challenges, innovative processes, such as laser welding, were used to manufacture customised steel components. The roof rests on eight tree-like pillars. High strength steel was used for the exceptionally stressed compounds.
