Project

The Centurion Staircase in Concrete

Mechatronics specialist AUMA builds new headquarters

Müllheim in southern Germany is the home of AUMA Riester GmbH & Co. KG, a mechatronics specialist. The company is building new headquarters with unique architectural features. One of them is a uniquely shaped and rounded concrete staircase that will be the highlight of the entrance hall. The stairs themselves revolve upward irregularly around a tulip-shaped inside core. 

The challenge facing MEVA engineers was translating the architect’s 3D model into a buildable and realistic plan in the first place. First they split the staircase into eight separate units, then worked out an exact pour plan for each. 

Following this, each unit was separated into formwork sections which were planned in CAD and handed over to special designs production company Kiefer Schalungsbau, from where they were delivered onto the site and assembled. Thanks to the exact pour outline and workflow planning for each unit, the site was able to start with the concrete pours without any delay. 

The centurion staircase, as the architectural gem was lovingly called, was finished on schedule and to the approval of architects, contractor and owner.

    South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.

    Children enjoy playing with it, teachers recommend it: the shape sorting box. Based on the popular toy, the architects who conceived the new Meséskert nursery designed the play areas on the top floor as a triangle, circle, and square.
