Project: Construction of the new hall 10, Stuttgart trade fair centre
Contractor: Moser GmbH & Co. KG, Merzhausen
Engineering and support: MEVA Schalungs-Systeme, Stuttgart branch
With the new Hall 10, the Stuttgart trade fair centre is expanding its exhibition space by 14,600 m² to 120,000 m². Furthermore, additional conference facilities are being added in the West Entrance area. Thus, the original design for the new trade fair centre is finally being implemented.
During the new construction of the West Entrance, the MT 60 shoring system supported 630 m² of in-situ concrete ceilings with thicknesses from 25 to 50 cm at heights up to 9.30 m inside the building. The shoring tower was assembled lying on the floor and erected using a crane. It is equipped with planking to form a work platform for slab framework removal. The cantilevered ceilings at heights up to 11 m were supported externally using the MEP shoring system. The quick and simple assembly thrilled both foremen and site manager.
Hall walls with architectural finish
The hall‘s walls had to be poured following specific architectural finish specifications. Facing sheet was mounted on the panels on-site to achieve a special surface pattern on the concrete. Site management used the MEVA concrete pressure calculator to check the fresh-concrete pressure during concrete pouring at heights up to 11,50 m and to precisely determine the rate of pouring.
Approval by health and safety authorities: SecuritBasic access
The safety equipment including comprehensive fall protection was planned and approved in advance by the health and safety inspectors of the German workers’ insurance. The modular safety system SecuritBasic ensures optimum access protection, while working levels to the left and right are setup with conventional walkway brackets and planking. SecuritBasic makes handling operations on site simple, flexible and cost-effective.

One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
The new theater is called The Otto M. Budig Theater and located in Cincinnati’s Over-The-Rhine district. When completed, it will become the last section of the planned “Classical Arts Corridor” in Cincinnati, which also includes a Music Hall, School for Creative and Performing Arts, and a park.
Children enjoy playing with it, teachers recommend it: the shape sorting box. Based on the popular toy, the architects who conceived the new Meséskert nursery designed the play areas on the top floor as a triangle, circle, and square.
