A new home for the urban bus fleet of Wiener Linien. With strictly functional structure by the main features: parking hall, workshop and administration building as a connecting clip of all the above named parties.
The five-aisle bus parking hall gets its subdivision in each 25 m wide and 80 m long sections for fire protection reasons. The department carried out by inclined steel prefabricated concrete walls (R90), which lean against kinked prefabricated concrete supports. The slender steel-roof structure (half-frame-like truss) fulfilled by hot design fire fire-resistance rating R30. The corresponding real fire load was taken from a related to the LPG buses used fire expert opinions.
The steel frame of 80 x 40 m large workshop hall needed only two internal supports to span the workspace using spatial main and flat side trusses. Here too the structure R30 archives by real fire-hot design.
The two-storey reinforced concrete structure, which connects the two parts of the hall, houses administrative & social areas. Thereby the upper floor spans the entrance located between the halls over one of the concrete ceiling build with the hanging truss.
