Beuth University of Applied Sciences

Berlin, Germany

For the Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, the concrete letters of the "BEUTH HOCHSCHULE FÜR TECHNIK" lettering were created using Fratec® forming formwork.

Since June 2009, the words "BEUTH HOCHSCHULE FÜR TECHNIK" have graced the Luxemburger Straße in Berlin. This 43-meter-long artwork was built from 173 tons of exposed concrete on the campus hill in the centre of Berlin.

The project called for a high quality exposed concrete surface and innovative formwork for the lettering. Custom-made formwork with a corresponding inner lining was used for the 2.0 m high letters to achieve an optimum shape and a particularly uniform, fine and smooth concrete surface quality.

Benefits of Fratec® special formwork at a glance:

  • Special formwork can be made to almost any dimensions
  • Delivered to the building site ready-to-install
  • Texturing of the concrete surface is possible
  • Optimal design and uniform concrete surface due to inner lining of the formwork
  • Easy and handy for transport and installation

Economic benefits:

  • No cleaning, no return transport
  • Disposal is no problem as recyclable material

Type of building:
