The final construction phase of what’s known as the “Band des Bundes” is completed in Berlin’s government district. The finishing touches on the “Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders” House constitute the culmination of the building complex known as the “Spreebogen”.
Within the project, H-BAU provided 20-meter tall RAPDIOBAT® formwork tubes that were used to construct the customized support columns for the building’s “floating” roof.
Another innovation from H-BAU used in this project is the RAPIDOBAT® Cretcon HD formwork tube. With its activated hydrogel-formwork-skin, it absorbs excess liquid from the concrete. The result is a non-porous, smooth exposed concrete surface of unprecedented quality.
The formwork tube forms very smooth concrete surfaces. By employing a special lining, the concrete column meets the highest demands of formwork skin class SHK3 and texture class T3. Continue reading
