With this new building, the German family business of Trautwein Präzisionsdrehteile GmbH has a second operating location. The design of the building, whose exterior is kept entirely white, comes from Röing genannt Nölke Architekten. Isenmann Ingenieur GmbH, a Dlubal customer, was responsible for the structural design of the solid and steel construction (work phases 1-6). RFEM was used to perform the structural analysis.
The main structure of the two-span hall used for storage and production consists of reinforced concrete columns bearing steel trusses. Three sawtooth roofs underlining the staggered shape of the building ensure sufficient exposure to natural light. A wide cantilevered roof in the supply area gives the building a comfortable level of lightness. The hall's facades are clad with deeply profiled trapezoidal steel sheets.
The two-story office building, including an inner courtyard, was built using reinforced concrete. The ground floor creates a connection to the production, while offices are located on the upper floor. The administrative area is clad with a smooth metal facade (made of aluminum).
The project has been nominated for the German Industrial Building Award 2022. In October, the award will be given in Stuttgart, Germany.

CSA S16:19 Stability Considerations and the New Annex O.2
The CSA S16:19 Stability Effects in Elastic Analysis method in Annex O.2 is an alternative option to the Simplified Stability Analysis Method in Clause 8.4.3. This article will describe the requirements of Annex O.2 and application in RFEM 6.
- The load distribution on my members looks different when using the Load Transfer surface vs. the Load Wizards. What is the reason?
- I received an error message “Surface of incompatible type... (Surface in upper plane of building story must be of ‘Load transfer’ type)” when running the calculation. What is the reason?
- My beam has a continuous lateral support and therefore lateral torsional buckling (LTB) is not a concern. How do I define the effective length?
