The “SKY” residential and commercial building is one of the highest construction projects the town of Bietigheim-Bissingen has ever seen. The building will have 18 stories, and as a result, will soar above most of the buildings in the district capital on the Neckar and Enz rivers.

The idyllic surroundings and riverside setting played a crucial role in the design of the new festival hall in Neckartailfingen.A defining element of this building is the roof construction, architecturally reflecting the interwining branches of the nearby tree-lined Neckarallee. In addition to the roof, the extensive use of glass in the hall and foyer is another important design feature. They offer visitors an uninterrupted view of the natural surroundings.

Every German citizen is familiar with the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) and yet probably no other government authority has recently been subject of more public interest than the BMF.

The Queensferry Crossing near Edinburgh in Scotland is a cablestayed bridge with three pylons over 200 m in height. It is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe and benefitted from ultramodern reinforcement planning in 3D thanks to the engineers from Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner (LAP) and Allplan Engineering. Transport Scotland’s consultants from the Jacobs Arup joint venture were not given an easy task in developing a concept for the new bridge. The bridge has to be an equal counterpart to the world cultural heritage of the "Forth Bridge."...
