The reception building was gutted, statically/structurally repaired, and renewed in partial areas; the destroyed roof-supporting structures were replaced by wide-spanned glass roofs. In order to attain a high degree of prefabrication while taking the existing supporting structure tolerances into account, the glazing of the historic dome-supporting structure required a highly detailed specification of the spatial steel substructure and glazing connections.
