Bavaria Towers, Munich

Modern skyscraper ensemble for Munich city East

Scope

Formwork planning for spectacular architecture of the four towers

Challenge

Pentagonal layouts and inclined roof surfaces

Performance

The building ensemble consists of the three office towers Sky Tower, Star Tower and Blue Tower with a total gross floor area of around 62,000 m² and the already rented White Tower hotel tower. There will also be two central underground garages with a total of 798 parking spaces.

The sloped roof surfaces of both towers, more than 9 m high - a ring stiffened by beams - are manufactured using Topmax system slab formwork tables with support towers from the Gass range. An international Hünnebeck development team with experts from Germany, England and the Netherlands has developed a special head especially for use on the Bavaria Towers that connects the Topmax steel frame tables with the Gass towers at the desired inclination of 11 degrees.  

The Hünnebeck formwork concept developed jointly with the construction site also includes the use of around 4,000 m² of Topflex slab formwork. It was used in the basements, for the construction of the ramp slabs for the underground car parks and as formwork for the fitting areas. The modern system based on H20 wooden beams does not require rigid system grid dimensions and is suitable for slab thicknesses of over 30 cm and room heights of over 4.50 m. The system is also suitable for the construction of the ramp slabs for the underground garages.
