ICS has been commissioned with the execution planning of an aircraft hangar for two Airbus aircrafts. The project comprises approximately a 10,000 square meter maintenance hangar, a three-storey administration building , a workshop area and some associated outdoor facilities.
The particular challenge here is the interplay between the skeleton construction of a hall, which spans an astonishing 110 meters with sliding doors that are 104 meters wide and the massive construction of the adjacent administration building.
The Hall is growing!
After intensive work on outdoor facilities and the foundations, the new Logistics Center in Germersheim is now also growing taller! The building shell is progressing rapidly thanks to prefabricated construction. Next, the trusses and the roof structure will be assembled.
Celebratory Groundbreaking Ceremony
On October 11, the groundbreaking ceremony took place near the construction site of Spangdahlem Elementary School. As an official welcome, the guests were greeted with cheerful songs sung by pupils. Subsequently, some thoughtful words from the involved representatives of the departments were shared. The groundbreaking ceremony commenced with participation from those responsible for the construction work and some pupils.
Start of construction in Spangdahlem
Construction has begun on the Spangdahlem Elementary School.
The classrooms were planned according to the 21st Century School concept with grade-specific classrooms around a shared central learning area.
In addition to the classrooms, the school will also have a library, a canteen with an adjoining kitchen, administrative and counseling rooms, and a gymnasium with adjoining rooms.
Construction in Germersheim
Following completion of the planning, the logistics center has now been awarded to a general contractor. Construction will start in April.
Soon the excavators will be rolling, the helmets will be put on and the shovels will be picked up. We look forward to seeing the building grow and to a good working relationship with everyone involved in the construction.
The preliminary design of the ISAR indoor shooting range in Baumholder has been completed. The overall concept includes a new building for a total of 15 shooting lanes with a total length of 50 meters, the demolition of an existing building on the construction site, and the design integration of the new building into the surrounding outdoor facilities. The system is implemented according to the latest standard with highly efficient ventilation technology and all the requirements for internal shooting safety. The building offers ideal practice conditions for shooters.
Elementary School Landstuhl
The first construction phase for the new elementary school in Landstuhl has been largely completed. The work mainly comprised the partial demolition of the existing school building, the necessary supplementary measures and the terrain modeling. The remaining school building will continue to be used until the new building is completed.
At the end of November, a cozy barbecue party was held with all the neighbors of our new building ensemble. Over a campfire, grilled vegetables, sausages and salads, new contacts were made and existing ones deepened.
New office in Mühlheim
The move is done. After almost 30 years we have left our old offices and moved into our new home in Mühlheim.
We feel very comfortable in the new air-conditioned rooms with modern furniture.
It's chic here.
Adjacent to a wooded hillside and embedded in nature, we are planning the construction of a new shooting training building. The two-story building has mobile internal partition walls that allow a changing, flexible room arrangement, adapted to the user's various practice scenarios.
Special attention is given to internal and external security in this project.
The ICS Design Team is moving!
From July we will be in our the new office in Mühlheimer Tor at Lämmerspieler Straße 12 in Mühlheim am Main.
The new office space covers an entire floor.
The building has a good connection to the public transport network due to the nearby S-Bahn station. There is also a fitness studio and a bakery right in the building.
Fitness Center Baumholder
ICS is planning the construction of a new approx. 2,600 sqm fitness center with an attached hydrotherapy area in Baumholder. The building will be erected on a south-facing slope. Therefore, the main training hall overlooks the valley and the adjacent forest area.
The building is single-story. The training hall is structurally higher than the administrative, office and sanitary rooms. The protruding monopitch roof with the visible laminated wood truss beams is striking. The roof overhangs the southern façade and serves as additional sun protection.
Dining Facility Grafenwoehr
ICS is planning a new Dining Facility building to serve around 1,400 people per meal.
The dining area is also intended to serve as a meeting room for group activities. Two training rooms are separated by folding walls.
The kitchen, administration and technical rooms are planned for the rear area.
The kitchen area also includes the fridge and freezer rooms.
The delivery takes place directly to the cooling and storage rooms in the rear area.
Finally the time has come! On September 16, the official opening of the Elementary School Wiesbaden took place. In the amphitheater of the school, the building was handed over to the students and staff during a festive ceremony with the "Ribbon Cutting".
Afterwards, the proud students and the invited guests took a guided tour through their new rooms.
ICS is planning an indoor firing range in the immediate vicinity of the US Airbase Ramstein. The facility will comprise a total of 35 parallel firing lanes, each 25 m long, located in a free-span, column-free hall. In addition, training and administrative rooms are provided. The building has a total size of approx. 4,500 sqm.
The project includes the planning of the bullet trap for the shooting lanes, elaborate sound insulation measures and ventilation equipment.
Logistics Center Germersheim
In 2010 and 2011 the existing large logistics center had been planned by ICS. Currently we design an extension to this building. The new annex will adopt the proven construction of the existing logistics center, with precast concrete elements, sandwich panel facades and a heated floor slab. Special demands are made on this floor slab in terms of load-bearing capacity, evenness and, partially, protection against leaking chemicals. The new building is essentially divided into three areas: A shipping hall with eight dock levellers, a warehouse with high-bay storage and an automatic conveyor belt system, as well as an administration area.
Office and warehouse complex in Ramstein
In order to enable smooth coordination between three different medical facilities, these units will be assembled „under one roof“. For this purpose, an office and warehouse complex will be built, which will take into account the individual needs of these units. Among other things, a modern administration building will be constructed. The rooms of the individual users will be arranged in order to be separated from each other, but at the same time general rooms such as meeting rooms, canteen and technical rooms are shared with each other. As a direct extension to the administration building, a column-free storage building is also planned.
Aircraft hangars in Spangdahlem
ICS is planning two aircraft hangars in close proximity to each other for maintenance and repair work. Both buildings will each have two large hangar bays with telescopic sliding doors. The roof will be stretched across the entire width of the hangar without supports. Large two-storey administrative areas with offices, training and recreation rooms are designed. Additional storage areas will be created centrally and directly adjacent to the hangar bays.
Maintenance and painting workshop in Spangdahlem
A combined aircraft maintenance and paint shop is being built as a central supply facility for the US armed forces in Germany. This includes an administration area, a workshop area with adjacent warehouse, as well as the large integrated paint booth.Between the administration area and the adjoining rooms, a complex decontamination sluice is designed. A supply air system with plenum swing doors and filter systems, which is unique in Europe, will be installed for the paint booth, which will ensure an optimal air flow within the booth and thus the best possible painting results.
Elementary School Wiesbaden
On the construction site in Wiesbaden, the construction work is in full swing. The shell construction will be completed by the end of the year.
Elementary School Landstuhl
A new elementary school for 610 pupils will be constructed on a slope directly adjacent to the existing school in Landstuhl. The key feature of the design is that the individual classrooms will be arranged according to a new pedagogical concept. The classrooms of the individual grades will be arranged around a commonly used central learning area, which will make it possible to hold lessons that vary from the usual frontal teaching approach. Apart from the classrooms, the room schedule comprises a library, a canteen with adjacent kitchen, administrative and consultation rooms as well as a gymnasium including secondary rooms.
Elementary School Spangdahlem
ICS Design Team are currently planning a new Elementary School in Spangdahlem. Located near the existing Elementary School, the new building is designed over 2 levels and will accomodate 880 children from 4 - 10 years of age. The design includes classrooms, administration, kitchen, dining, gymnasium, art and music rooms.
In Zweibrücken, the ICS Design Team plans a complete renovation of an accommodation building that is a protected historic building. The building will be provided with 86 accommodation rooms, each with private bathroom. The new layout design reflects the protected historic window division of the building.
