Basle Exhibition, Hall 1

Top performance on this project! The completion of this ambitious, three-storey project with 36,000 m2 of modern exhibition space in a construction time of fewer than ten months is a near record-breaking performance. The 11,000 tons of steel for the steel-concrete composite construction was, thanks to a high degree of prefabrication and the meticulous planning and implementation of an elaborate assembly concept, all fitted in less than three months. The exhibition hall is 200 m long, 90 m wide and 24 m high.
