Wheelset Warehouse for SBB Repair Centre, Zurich-Altstetten
Swiss Steel Construction Award Prix Acier 2018
The single-storey hall is located amidst listed buildings on the site of the SBB Repair Centre in Zurich-Altstetten. Railway cars and even locomotives can be pushed under the roof of the hall using a transfer table. The new roof provides space for storing wheelsets and recyclables. The supporting structure of the roof construction rests on six in-situ concrete columns. This allows high flexibility of the supporting structure for future use.
The single-storey warehouse has base dimensions of 24.1 m x 53.5 m with clear room height of 7.8 m. The steel structure of the roof consists of rolled section girders, which span the hall in transverse direction without columns. Arranged at intervals of 8.8 m, the main beams are sup-ported along the longitudinal façades by a steel framework. The steel frameworks each rest on three in-situ concrete columns, allowing the 1,300 m2 roof to rest on only six columns. The hall is stabilised by the framework effect of the six in-situ concrete columns set in the foundations, eliminating the need for continuous wall bracing. This guarantees a very flexible layout for future use of the hall. A 3.2-t crane runway spans approx. 22.7 m of the hall in a crosswise direction and runs its entire length, with the upper edge of the crane runway rail at a height of approx. 6.6 m above the hall floor.
