To design its new sales center in Burghausen, Germany, the tube trading company Buhlmann Rohr-Fittings-Stahlhandel GmbH + Co. KG has opted for PREON® box. Using the planning software developed by Vallourec, the roof was designed and constructed with PREON®, the optimized tube system for the supporting structures of wide-span hall roofs, within a few weeks. The hall measuring 13 m in height and 130 m in length is subdivided into two bays, each spanning a width of 30 m. Special features include an integrated craneway and a roof-based photovoltaic system.
For Jörg Klüver, managing director of Buhlmann, PREON® box was the optimum solution from several aspects: "Above all, we were impressed by the fast, economical and flexible planning and implementation made possible by the PREON® box solution. In addition, the quality and good looks of the supporting structure made from MSH sections are a perfect match to our product portfolio and also meet our customers' expectations."
Design started in November 2014, and by April 2015 the structural steelwork was completed.
