Ludwigsburg District Hall

The new building of the Ludwigsburg District Office is a functional administrative building in reinforced concrete skeleton construction. Werner Sobek was commissioned with the planning of the supporting structure. On five levels, the building mainly houses office and registry rooms. The slender reinforced concrete ceilings cantilever by 3.20 m in large areas. Due to the extremely low number of bracing walls, small wall sections of the facade were used for bracing.

German Premiere: Recycled Concrete for Long-Span Ceilings and Cantilevers

High utilisation requirements in parts of the ground floor necessitated complex load suspension. For this purpose, tension supports were connected to a steel girder on the roof. Another challenge for the planners was the use of recycled concrete in around 4,000 m² of load-bearing components. Such a large amount of recycled concrete had never been used in Germany before. For the first time, the material was also used for long-span ceilings and cantilevers.
