Double roundabout at the Leinefelde (Milchhof) junction as part of the OU Kallmerode

The services we provide on the project are construction management and local construction supervision.

Press release from DEGES German Unity Trunk Road Planning and Construction GmbH:
In connection with the renovation of the Leinefelde junction on the B 247, we would like to inform you as follows:

After four months of construction, the double roundabout at the Leinefelde junction will be opened to traffic on Monday, November 20th, around 12 p.m. The release also includes the exit from the B 247 to the street "Birkunger Straße" in the direction of A 38 and - coming from the direction of Birkungen - the entrance from "Birkunger Straße" to the B 247.

With the opening of the double roundabout, the state road 3080 (former B 247) is now finally connected to "Birkunger Straße". The connection was initially made provisionally via the south industrial area when the Kallmerode bypass was opened to traffic on December 7, 2022.

The expansion and new construction of the access ramps north of the B 247, including a roundabout, a bridge over the Ohne and a retaining wall, are still proceeding according to plan. During the construction period, "Birkunger Straße" between the streets "Lisztstraße/Birkunger Straße" roundabout and the new double roundabout will remain completely closed to motorized traffic. "Birkunger Straße" in this area can be used for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as for residents north of the Ohne. The conversion of the Leinefelde junction is necessary because the planned Leinefelde western section (L 3080n) is expected to result in a significant increase in traffic numbers in the area of the junction, meaning that traffic performance in this area must be increased.

According to current planning, the work should be completed by the end of 2024. The expected total costs for converting the Leinefelde junction are almost six million euros.




Completion of the shell of the KITA Riegelsberg

For the hybrid building of the daycare center with a mixture of reinforced concrete and wood, the last roof elements could now be laid and the shell of the building thus completed.
The building has 2 offset floors, which results in a partial basement and a cantilever.
The foundation of the basement as well as the overhanging first floor was solved by means of high-ductility driven piles in connection with wall-like beams due to the poorly load-bearing subsoil. Therefore, the basement integrated into the slope was designed as a reinforced concrete structure.
The first floor is realized as a pure timber construction with BSP walls and BSP ceilings in visible quality.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG were allowed to take over all service phases of the structural design for this future-oriented building project for the children.




Topping-out ceremony for GSM 2 extension

In early summer, the shell of the extension to the Melsungen Comprehensive School was completed with the topping-out ceremony.
Here, a 3-story solid structure was connected to the existing school building.
The transition takes place on the upper floor via a bridge construction.
Architecturally, the new building is characterized by bright and open floor plans in combination with appealing exposed concrete surfaces.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG was allowed to be responsible for the structural design of another educational building.

New construction of fire and rescue station 3 in Kassel

Fire and rescue station 3 is being built in Kassel-Waldau by the summer of 2026, which will house not only the professional fire department and rescue service, but also disaster control and the volunteer fire department.
According to current statements, a total of around 60 million euros will be invested to ensure the critical infrastructure.
IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG are proud to be involved in the structural design and building physics of this important project.

Ground-breaking ceremony, 2nd construction phase Arndtstrasse in Erfurt

For a long time, the groundwork for the Arndtstrasse in Erfurt was planned, discussed and rejected. Now the project is about to start.




Bridge Construction Symposium

This year's Dresden Bridge Construction Symposium was again an excellent event that brought together professionals from the bridge construction industry to discuss current developments and challenges. The symposium featured a wide range of presentations by renowned experts. Topics such as innovative design techniques, sustainable materials, digital design tools and effective maintenance strategies were in focus. The symposium continued to provide a platform for companies and organizations to present their innovative products, technologies and research projects in the field of bridge construction and to establish contacts. The informal talks and discussions during the breaks encouraged the exchange of experiences and the formation of new connections. We are already looking forward to the next Dresden Bridge Construction Symposium, where we will again have the opportunity to network with the best in the industry and share in the latest developments. For the German Bridge Construction Award 2023, among others, IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG was nominated in the category "Foot and Cycle Path Bridges" with the listed refurbishment of the Carl Alexander Bridge near Dornburg.

Ceremonial release of the bridge "Promenadendeck" in Erfurt

On december 16, 2022, after two years of construction, the handover of the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Flutgraben and Stauffenbergallee, better known as the "Promenadendeck" in Erfurt took place. The official release was performed by Alexander Reintjes (Head of the Civil Engineering and Traffic Office), Matthias Bärwolff (Councillor for Construction, Traffic and Sports), Susanna Karawanskij (Thuringian Minister for Infrastructure and Agriculture), Dr. Tobias Knoblich (Councillor for Culture and Urban Development) and Mayor Andreas Bausewein.

The children of the AWO children's home "An der Schmalen Gera" danced for the opening guests despite the icy temperatures.
