Topping-out ceremony: TUM Campus in the Olympic Park Munich
23 May, 2019
One of the currently largest timber construction sites in Europe, the TUM Campus in the Olympic Park Munich, celebrated its topping-out ceremony on 21 May. On an area of 42,000 m², a 185 x 153 metre sports campus with 14 modern sports halls, 12 lecture halls, 15 laboratories, 5 workshops and 300 offices as well as a library and cafeteria is being built. The outdoor sports facilities cover an area of 20 hectares and are partly protected by an impressive 18 metre cantilevered wooden construction. “With this fascinating and functional building, we are ideally equipped for the future,” says Albert Berger, Chancellor of the Technical University of Munich. Bavaria’s Minister of Construction, Hans Reichhart, praised: “The new building will be special in many respects. Not only does it fit in architecturally sensitively into the listed Olympic Park. It is also energy-saving and 80 percent made of wood. This is not commonplace in such a large building and stands for our desire to preserve resources from the building material through to operation. Building culture and the quality of building are very important to us.”
