Retreating: Renovation of car park "Krautstrasse" in Memmingen

Since mid-June, the car park “Krautstrasse” in Memmingen has been reopened after extensive renovation work. OBERMEYER was commissioned with the general planning.

The Krautstrasse car park in Memmingen was built in 1989. Now it had been closed for 15 months due to renovation work. Since June 12, 265 parking spaces have been available again 24 hours a day. There are six new charging points for electric cars in the basement. The construction costs of the entire project amounted to around 6.7 million euros.

OBERMEYER had been commissioned with the general planning of the project, which is under grandfathering. In addition to the structural design of the buildings, our company was also responsible for the planning of the electrical and information technology as well as the technical equipment. The installation of an elevator now allows barrier-free access to all levels.

The most extensive part of the refurbishment, however, was the concrete repair of the whole floor and the pillars. This had become unavoidable due to the penetration of chlorides by road salt from the car tyres over decades.
