Scope of service

 The Moosach school center for around 2,200 students (with elementary school, junior high school, high school, gymnasiums and swimming pools as well as sport fields) was completely renovated in two construction phases during ongoing operation. The school buildings, the swimming pool, the triple gymnasium and the exsiting single gymnasium were rebuilt or renovated, and the elementary school was expanded. The existing building was also raised an a single gymnasiumm including an entrance area and new janitor's apartements were built.

The supporting structure was realized in reinforced concrete construction with maximum spans of up to 28 m, four-story stair towers and flat roofs. The new single gymnasium has been built in timber construction. The previous bicycle cellar was sealed against temporary groundwater infiltration ("white tank" design). The project included fire protection upgrades and remediation of pollutants. Other special features of the school center are prestressed concrete girders and the stiffening lightweight concrete stairwells.
