CEMEX is provider of choice for new housing development built inside a natural reserve in Germany

Date published: November 4, 2010

The new "Seepark" (Lake Park) housing development near Probstsee located in the southern German city of Stuttgart combines easy accessibility with unspoiled natural beauty. CEMEX has been selected to deliver precast concrete for the approximately 450 residential units in an area of 54,000 square meters located in a zone categorized as a natural reserve in Germany because of its beautiful lake and landscape.

Häussler Holding GmbH, the owner of this project selected Ed. Züblin AG, one of the most important construction companies in Europe, to work the first two phases of the construction project. When faced with the characteristics of the project, Ed. Züblin chose CEMEX to be its main supplier because of its ample portfolio of reinforced concrete semi-finished products.

Due to the importance of the natural site, efficiency in the delivery and use of the products was crucial. Additionally, because of its presence in a seismic area, the products delivered had to comply with the regulations that rate the resistance of these buildings to earthquakes.

CEMEX delivered reinforced concrete from its facility in Bischofsheim, to build the walls, the floors, the ceiling, and the stairs. The slabs, columns and other specific elements for the walls and ceilings were made of specific reinforced concrete semi-finished products. Each of these elements had to follow very specific design specifications.

From November 2009 to the end of summer 2010, CEMEX had already delivered about 23,000 square meters of floor slabs and 5,000 square meters of double wall elements concluding the first two phases of this impressive housing development.
