Audi freight centre Hall B
A meeting place for up to 5,000 employees
A meeting place engineered in timber, with a 7,000 m² event area, is being built at the Audi freight transport centre in Hall B, according to the plans of pbb Architekten und Ingenieure, including a 4,300 m² meeting room that can accommodate up to 5,000 people, with a mobile partition wall measuring 68 m in length and weighing 36 tonnes.
Around 900 m³ of GLT will be used for the timber support structure, and some 6,900 m² of timber roof panels with acoustic soffit in R 30 for the roof. A separate type approval is required for this. The hall walls, around 2,600 m², were made of CLT and had to be covered with three layers of plasterboard to meet the R90 fire resistance requirements.
Assembly of the timber structure starts at a height of 22 m – a real challenge requiring a 500-tonne crane with a 120 m long lattice boom. The furthest lift was a 30 m long timber beam with a load of 8 tonnes that had to be brought into position at a distance of 95 m and a hook height of 45 m.
