Dear Ms Mustermann,
 
In this newsletter, dear readers, we again try to offer you a variety of topics as colorful as possible. In keeping with the traditional key topic of our annual May issue, focus on underground construction. Berding Beton, for example, delivered 735 reinforced-concrete DN 3000 jacking pipes for a new 2.2-km sewer in Munich. PT Bonna Indonesia reports on the production and delivery of an impressive 7 km of reinforced-concrete pressure pipe for a power plant in Bangladesh. In addition, our South African colleague David Beer contributed for BFT a guest report on a prestressed-concrete bridge construction project near Cape Town. You can additionally look forward to a detailed report from GTSdata. This software supplier equipped three concrete plants in Germany – Gilne, Vetra and Max Bögl – with the modern ERP software Priamos for process optimization: from the offer to installation. Enjoy these and other exciting reports.
Yours

Cast-stone and concrete floors for German Embassy
The Chancery of the German Embassy in Paris is located in the 8th arrondissement on Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt, quite central, on the rear side of the Grand Palais and only a few steps from the Champs Élysées. The building, erected as a reinforced concrete skeleton construction, originates from the 1960s and was completely renovated between 2015 and 2019 under the supervision of the German Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR): according to the BBR, “… with focus on renovation of the above-ground stories as well as replacement of the façade.” The architectural firm Baumewerd from Münster, Germany, was commissioned for the necessary planning of this project.

2.2 km of DN 3000 reinforced-concrete jacking pipes for new sewers
Within the scope of the project “Sewer rehabilitation Landsberger Strasse,” 735 jacking pipes from Erding Beton were installed over a total jacking length of 2,195 m to achieve a significant improvement of the hydraulic situation in the drainage network in the west of Munich. Increasing sealing of surfaces in particular in large cities and the more frequent occurrence of heavy-rain events result in considerable quantities of sewage that overload the sewer systems. The decision was made for the construction project “Sewer rehabilitation Landsberger Strasse” to achieve a significant improvement of the hydraulic situation in the sewer network in the west of Munich. The objective was to relieve the existing and often overloaded sewer system in the area of Pasing and Laim and to divert better and more effectively the critical flows of combined wastewater in the east and/or west of Munich by a new sewer 3 m in diameter ...

Energy-efficient cooling and heating solutions for enhancing fresh concrete quality
Solid concrete components are used for the construction of airports, dams, tunnels, bridges and other infrastructural projects. Owing to their thickness, such elements can develop a high amount of hydration heat and thus internal stresses resulting in cracking even months after their installation. In addition, exceedingly high or low ambient temperature levels can obstruct the controlled curing of concrete in regions with extreme climatic conditions. This is why the temperature of the concrete needs to be controlled efficiently already during the mixing process in order to prevent cracking and, consequently, severe damage to the building or structure. Thus, construction contractors and concrete producers have ...
