The renowned German football club FC Bayern München commissioned the internationally active Unger Steel Group with the realization of the constructive steel construction for the grandstand as well as the luminaire system of the floodlight of the new junior training center in Munich. In just 65 days, 445 tons of steel were installed on an area of 5,950 sqm.
The welded Vierendeel girders, which consist of bars composed of rectangles, overhang 13 meters above the seats of the grandstand, and protect the audience from the rain. The Unger Steel Group completed the steel construction work of the FC Bayern München junior training center in time and to the fullest satisfaction of the customer. On September 30th, 2016, the steel structure was handed over as planned.
On October 14th, 2016, exactly one year after the foundation of the building project, a topping-out ceremony at the construction site took place for all participating companies. Representatives of the Unger Group were also present and gave an individual and personal gift to the FC Bayern München board of management. A FC Bayern tricot made of steel plates is now reminiscent of the good cooperation between the German club and the Unger Steel Group.
