Turning a landmarked foundry hall in Ingolstadt into a modern museum is a challenging task: The museum was built underneath the existing structure on basement level. The project was supervised by archaeologists, as it involved a historical city fortification.
Underpinning the existing foundation as well as the cast iron pillars, selectively strengthening the roof structure and creating a basement level in an area of groundwater influence of the nearby Danube all laid down high demands, not only for our progress planning but also for our structural engineers.
