Data of Production Hall (Partial Model)

Within a short period of time, a modern aluminum structure with sophisticated building services was constructed for the company Hydro Aluminium in Grevenbroich.

The construction project on the premises near Düsseldorf covers approximately a length of 722 ft and a width of 394 ft. It includes various connecting bridges to the existing premises, a three-aisled production hall with outbuildings as well as a 328 ft long and 99 ft high high-rack warehouse which was constructed in slipform paving technology.

During this project, the Dlubal customer pbr from Osnabrück was as general contractor also in charge of the structural planning and used the FEA Software RFEM to design the production hall made of steel.


The outer dimensions of the production hall amount to L x W x H = approx. 145 ft x 689 ft x 92 ft. The frame distances vary between 14 ft 9 in and 19 ft 8 in. All columns are fixed at the base.

The structure with steel grade S 235 was protected with a color coating against corrosion. The wall covering of the hall consists of insulated cassette profiles and trapezoidal sheets. It is surrounded by a base made of reinforced concrete.
