Situation

For the planned conversion of the FIFA Museum, the existing structure was significantly reconstructed and expanded. A part of the building was increased in height by four new storeys. Both the building and the finished stage of the structure required the incorporation of massive beams, braces, and columns as well as the reinforcement of floors, walls, and countless openings.

Solution

The concrete surface was prepared by grinding, onto which the laminates were applied, some crosswise, with S&P Resin 220, thus forming a load-transferring connection. The structure was braced throughout the application period.

Material

1,080 m of S&P CFK-laminates, 150/2000 type, various cross-sections and steel laminates
