The parking complex is divided into two ground-level “fingers” extending roughly100 m in a free span above the autobahn and the ICE high-speed rail line. The steel structures consisting of six truss girders as high as the structure, rigid frames and ceiling girders in the transverse direction, were inserted using the “incremental launching method”.
