The New Berlin Airport
It is the biggest contract in the history of Eiffel Deutschland Stahltechnologie: construction in 2009 and 2010 of the roof for the new Berlin Airport in the south-east of the city.
The central terminal alone has a surface area of 48,000 m² and reaches a height of 33 metres. 220 employees worked to meet the challenge. 10,000 tons of steel were designed and manufactured in the space of fourteen months, then the whole construction was assembled in just thirty weeks, with the metallic structure “floating” on 30 pillars.
On the equipment side, two 750-ton and three 300-ton cranes, as well as special transport equipment were required to finish the works on schedule.
