:envihab Institute for aviation and space medicine Cologne - Zero gravity build with steel.

The great flexibility for changing scientific demands is made possible with a long spanning, story high and circumferentially cantilevering steel lattice. The stiff roof structure rests on regularly arranged composite columns in the actual building space below. The synergy effect of the double function as roof structure and spacious utility floor contributes to the sustainability of the building. The distributed technical equipment allows the individual connection of modules, which can be adjusted according to changing scientific requirements and hence allows various utilization scenarios. In this paper the technical challenges are described from the point of view of the steel contractor Christmann

Keywords: flexibility, steel lattice structure, utility story
