CEMEX in Germany supplied 17,000 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete, including over 10,000 cubic meters of specialty architectural concrete, for the state-of-the-art biology building at Regensburg University. This new building will provide students and professors with the finest and most modern conditions for study and research.

The state building authority of Regensburg is refurbishing the western part of the university’s campus for natural sciences faculty and students. The first phase of this project is the construction of the new biology building, which contains modern laboratories, lecture halls, tuition facilities, and course and seminar rooms. A major part of this structure was constructed of high quality architectural concrete since the design specified that all balustrades, supports, and walls that are visible from the outside through the glass facades and patio must display superior quality facework. Normal mixtures of concrete were used for the foundation, ceilings, and remaining structural components.

In close coordination with the designers, prior to the project, CEMEX produced 12 sample slabs with different formwork and vacuum concrete types, from which the contractor chose the best-suited variants. Appropriate additives were mixed to achieve the right consistency. Moreover, Danube gravel of different grain sizes was selected as aggregates to achieve the desired slenderness of some components.

“Due to the splendid collaboration of all participants, the architectural concrete surfaces are perfect,” said Markus Stelzle, site manager.

CEMEX does more than supply quality building materials: it provides solutions. From technical advice to custom-tailored products, the company enables its clients to stay at the forefront of the industry.
