Construction of new grandstand roof as part of the conversion of the pavilion of Hotel Kulm. The overhang of the two grandstand roofs is made of V-shaped cantilever beams in ash wood, which are clamped in reinforced concrete pedestals at the base. Wood-en hollow-box elements were used for the roof construction of both grandstands. The rectangular footprint of the main grandstand measures approx. 26.10 m x 8.40 m. The maximum height of the structure is approx. 4.80 m.
