In the course of the expansion of the company headquarters Würth S.r.l., a new logistics centre including an associated warehouse was built in Neumarkt (South Tyrol) on an area of almost 4000 square metres.
During the soil investigations, it turned out that load-bearing soil layers were only available at deeper levels. Due to the high demands on the foundation of the structure, especially in the area of the warehouse, and with regard to the construction time (requirement of a high shift performance), the use of ductile driven piles was already recommended in the planning phase.
Based on various test results, the planning team led by Arch. Vonmetz Johann (arch.tv Trojer Vonmetz Architects) in cooperation with the engineering office Holzner & Bertagnolli and in agreement with the project coordinator Mr. Ing. Sandro Faccioli (Würth), a concept for the foundation with ductile driven piles was worked out.
