As engineers, architects, draughtsmen, geologists, environmental planners and specialists in many fields we are dedicated to the technical realisation of multiple complex requirements taking into account numerous factors that influence design, construction execution, utilisation and operation. Transparent and light structures, clear and modest constructions, best quality as well as a maximum economic efficiency correspond to our efforts to achieve functionality and aesthetic in harmony with technical feasibility, sustainability and robustness. Building Information Modeling - BIM supports us during this process.


For more than 10 years, SSF Ingenieure has been embodying this design process. Digital design followed by construction is nowadays most clients’ priority – minimising risks and increasing quality. Overall, the design, approval and construction processes are reduced by involving the public at an early stage. The digital models provide the citizen with an early overview of each designed construction project. The actual construction can then be realised without any timely or financial unpredictability.

Advantages of BIM

Applying BIM in the framework of the project serves the following issues, which will as a result be evaluated:

  • 4D construction process and status report representation of individual objects of the fabrication process such as structure, temporary scaffolding, construction pits and site roads linking of individual objects to the construction schedule
  • transparent and complete bill calculation of lump sum construction lots with BIM parallel bill calculation of unit price construction lots, traditionally as well as with BIM comparison of both bill calculation methods
  • mobile cloud-based BIM application with access via iPad app or web portal provision of digital information with BIM 360 Field software documentation of the construction execution in situ on the construction site
  • link of the plan management platform (EPLASS) to the BIM application (optional) link between the 3D model and the belonging plans on the construction component level integration and follow-up of the plans status in the 3D model

New Construction of Filstal Viaduct

NBS Stuttgart-Ulm

The around 485 m long, double-tracked and semi-integrally designed structure crosses on two separate superstructure and up to 80 m high Y-supports the Filstal valley. It has a main span width of around 150 m and is on both sides connected to tunnels.

The structure is built as single-web T-beam cross section on a launching track and on up to 80 m high temporary supports. The raking supports of the Y-supports are concreted afterwards and connected monolithically to the superstructures. Certain aspects of the bridge lead to exceptionally high requirements regarding the design, work preparation and construction and fabrication processes; these aspects are the high axle and breaking loads typical on railway lines, the future speed of 250 km/h on the ballastless track superstructure combined with the concept of a semi-integral bridge, the Y-supports with very flat diagonal struts and the difficult topographical and geometrical boundary conditions


A successful synthesis of challenging architecture and energy efficiency


The Energy Efficiency Centre was promoted by the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology in the framework of the research focus EnOB (Research on optimised construction) as well as by the Free State of Bavaria.


Main goal of this building is to use new, innovative and efficient materials, systems and technologies and to verify by means of example their application within the building stock as well as on new buildings, to demonstrate them and to subject them to monitoring. The load-bearing structure (concrete and steel) was designed by SSF Ingenieure as BIM isolated application. New energy storage solutions to provide heating and cooling required an interactive and integral collaboration between the architects, building services specialists and structural designers.
