Structurae-Newsletter - 5/2014

Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

From May 22nd to 25th the citizens of the European Union will vote for a new parliament. Obviously, I won't give any recommendations on what party to vote for. I would simply like to take this occasion to present some of those buildings listed in Structurae that are used by European institutions. I'd also like to point to some other government and public adminstration buildings used at national, regional or municipal levels.
Best regards,

Nicolas Janberg
Editor-in-Chief, Structurae

Also located in Strasbourg, the Louise Weiss Building serves as the seat of the European Parliament. It was designed by Architecture Studio.

Most national parliament buildings are already listed in Structurae. One of the most impressive and interesting examples is the Reichstag in Berlin which houses the German Bundestag.

Comprehensive formwork and scaffolding services at the new Munich Airport Satellite Terminal

In order to be able to handle around 11 million additional passengers per year from 2015 onwards, Terminal 2 at Munich Airport is currently being expanded in the form of a satellite terminal. The fact that the new building has to be constructed during normal operations, presents great challenges for the contractor. PERI has supplied a complete solution consisting of formwork, scaffolding and engineering – and convinced both the construction company and the scaffolding contractor with its safer and faster system technology as well as a customized package of services.
