191 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 3: Industrial Buildings and Plants Category 3: Industrial Buildings and Plants 3 Short description │Reconstruction of Existing Industrial Building MOBITEX The basic purpose of the project is to transform the existing storage hall into a new “Steel structures manufacturing plant” including an overhead double girder crane with a bearing capacity of 10 t. The basic dimensions of the existing building are a width of 20.0 m, a length of 50.0 m and ~5.0/5.6 m in height at the eaves/ridge. The overall weight of steel for the existing structure was 36,864 t or 36.3 kg/m2. The reconstruction includes a change of elevation for 4.0 m with the strengthening of bearing steel structure elements, the installing of a crane rail girder moved from another location and the construction of a new canopy alongside the whole length of the building. The new dimensions of the reconstructed building show no change except for the height of the building at the eaves/ridge which measures ~9.0/9.6 m. The canopy span measures ~15.0 m with an eaves height of ~5.2 m. The new weight of steel for the reconstructed structure is 74,695 t or 73.6 kg/m2 which means 37.3 kg/m2 of new steel structure. The weight of the canopy structure is 23,854 t or ~30.3 kg/m2. Project information Owner Dipl.-Ing. Matjaž Žabkar General Contractor LoGing, d.o.o. Slovenia Engineering Office LoGing, d.o.o.
