Assignment by SEBB

One consequence of the modification of the Volksbank building in Böblingen were changes underground. IWR GmbH and the engineering office Köhler from Gera have therefore been commissioned by Eigenbetrieb Stadtentwässerung Böblingen (SEBB) with the planning and construction supervision of a culvert. A special feature of this structure is that in dry weather the wastewater is pumped and only in rainy weather the combined culvert will be activated. The manholes at culvert entrance and outlet were executed in PE.

What is a culvert?

A culvert is an underpass below an obstacle such as a river or a road. The structure is used to connect two separate areas and allows the flow of people, animals or objects without them having to cross the obstacle. Different materials such as concrete, steel or plastic can be used for its construction, and the shape can vary depending on size and purpose.
