Ten Alimak mast climbing work platforms are being used during the construction of a new building block in Berlin, Germany.
The German Trade Union Confederation, Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund (DGB) is building a new office and commercial building in the Berlin Schöneberg district.
The new office building of approximately 21,000 m² will be used by the federal board administration of the DGB. The new building elements with different heights blend together to create a distinct structure with a unified appearance.
Alimak was approached to supply an efficient vertical access solution for mounting the new façade elements and windows of the DGB building.
Anchoring of the mast towers created a challenge with reconstruction from standard anchoring to special consoles required. Alimak provided a forcible technical solution for the mounting of windows and facade with a total of ten mast climbing work platforms, from its German rental fleet. The project commenced in September 2021 and is ongoing until today.
