Over a period of nine months, over 27,000 m3 of building space in total had to be demolished and restored in Taufkirchen. Although the school buildings, gymnasiums and assembly halls generally had the same design, they differed in terms of the height and type of roof construction, among other things, meaning that suitable specialist equipment was required.
The main building consisted of a reinforced concrete skeleton construction with masonry infill. Due to its height of approx. 18 m and high concrete quality, a compromise had to be found between excavator and attachment tool. In this case, the decision-makers therefore opted for a Hitachi ZX 800 long-front excavator, combined with the CC 3700 Epiroc demolition crusher, which Ottl used here for the first time.
"That was exactly the right decision. The concrete had no chance against the CC 3700."
