FOUNDED ON 1.000 bored piles
CONSTRUCTION OF UNIVERSITY CAMPUS IN MÜLHEIM AN DER RUHR
In spring 2016 the scheduled teaching has started on campus in Mülheim an der Ruhr of the Hochschule Ruhr West (HRW). In six years of planning and construction, a modern university complex of eight buildings that provide high flexibility and high sojourn quality. Especially the urban integration in the existing environment at the Duisburger Straße is well done and the campus has become an open and communicative part of the district.
ZPP was responsible for the structural analysis of the institute building 1 and 2, the library and the lecture hall centre. Additionally, the partly complex designed stone and steel-glass fronts for the entire complex and numerous structures inside, such as the required ones for realizing the seating circle in the lecture halls. All this rests on about 1.000 bored piles, giving the new educational institution, a secure foundation.
