Reinforced concrete in Hamburg
For our clients we perform the entire Project Planning and Structural Framework Planning for reinforced concrete projects. We execute Static Calculations for the whole structure as well as Pipe Stress Calculations. Also Vibration Measurements are within our scope of work. Furthermore we secure that all structural-physical verification towards Thermal and Climate Protection, Fire and Noise Protection is given. As Technical Experts we execute the examination acc. to the Federal Water Act (WHG/VAwS) for sealing surfaces hazardous to water.
Steel constructions are charakterized with clearly-arranged planning time, short assembly time and a high flexibility. Especially in Industrial and Bridge Structures – when the overall project asks for an optimal solution – Steel Engineering is asked for.
Dipl.-Ing. Hermann Deimling, founder of the Engineering Office KramerAlbrecht, belongs to the pioneers of reinforced concrete in Germany. As a staff member of Eduard Züblin, Deimling was one of the first engineers ever to use this new method in Northern Germany. When the first reinforced concrete floor in Hamburg was built, the workers were so sceptic about that method that they refused to remove the falsework of the shuttering. Eventually Hermann Deimling removed it himself. One of the groundbreaking big steel work Projects was the foundation of the Hamburg Central Station on 800 precast concrete piles.
Reinforced concrete belongs to the most common used building material in Germany. It’s able to compensate tension stress and excels with a large total bearing capacity. The Composite of concrete and reinforcing steel is extremely fire resistant and is mainly considered as non-inflammable. The application area is mostly used for floor and ceilings Panels, retaining walls, suupporting collumns and bridge pillars.
