VISIT TO ADK
Press Release Marketing-Club Ostwürttemberg E.V.
March 2017: Houses made of huge building blocks
The German embassy in Kabul must be extremely bombardement save and resistant.
Anyone who thinks that building is built stone on stone is deceptive. It consists of numerous modules. These were designed and manufactured by ADK Modulbau in Neresheim. On two production lines, building modules and the complete shell for buildings are being built around the world. The members of the marketing club Ostwürttemberg looked more closely at ADK.
At the transport to Kabul it happened. When the truck bounced over a steep pass, one of the building modules for the German Embassy slipped off the loading area. "The shock was great. Fortunately, though
Our modules are extremely stable, "said Rainer Jordan, sales and project manager of ADK Modulbau in Neresheim to members of the marketing club. For 13 years, the world-wide company, which specializes in hybrid module construction, has been the record of the king's discipline of prefabricated construction. According to Robert Kohler, one of the ADK founders and owners, the hybrid modular construction is characterized by the enormous construction quality compared to simple container buildings.Kohler: "In the field of solid construction, the building and then every room is completed. In modular construction, first the rooms and then the building are built - in half the time. "
Shell construction is at work
The planning of the buildings is individual and possible according to customer requirements and guidelines. Two production lines are available for the module production at the plant in Neresheim. The entire shell is also made here. Before the modules come to the construction site, 90% of all the work is already done on or in them. This includes the installation of the ventilation, the sanitary facilities and the façade including insulation. Furniture and equipment required, something for hospitals, are also considered. "In the factory, we are independent of the weather and can also work in the winter. This is an enormous advantage over the construction site ", says Rainer Jordan.
The finished modules are transported by truck to the next port, depending on the destination. From there the ship continues. As far as Russia, China and Ethiopia, the modular buildings are being built and are being assembled on site.
More than half of the sales are made with hospitals and medical centers. ADK has, among other things, established the City Hospital in Nottingham. The largest project to date is the Novosibirsk Neurology Hospital. This consists of 360 modules. Buildings are also being created for numerous other industries. The largest module with 6 x 6 x 23 meters was created for the Sparkassen-Business-Club at the Voith-Arena in Heidenheim.
