DEKRA Construction Management

Expertise in textile construction

The former Blum laboratory has belonged to DEKRA Industrial International GmbH Division Construction Management as the Stuttgart field office for a year now. The team has earned a worldwide reputation as experts in the field of textile construction.

All areas of technical textiles in membrane structures (and related areas) are covered from research and development to material and detailed testing to the construction physics of light roofing structures, quality assurance in construction work and damage assessment.

The Stuttgart field office is a testing, monitoring and certification body recognised for membranes and films according to the state building regulations and the building regulation list by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (German Institute for Construction Engineering). As such, the laboratory provides consent on an individual basis for membrane structures in Germany. However, the laboratory is also involved in the quality assurance of numerous international major projects, e.g. the roofing of the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the Kiev stadium, the BC Place stadium in Vancouver (Canada), the national stadium in Warsaw, Greenpoint stadium (Cape Town, South Africa) and many more.

Self-developed testing devices (biaxial tensile testing machine, membrane tension measuring device) are the result of decades of experience in theory and practice. In addition, the laboratory works on standards committees, is actively involved in association work (Tensinet) and gives lectures at the university of Anhalt and the Technical University of Vienna.

The laboratory has been located at new premises in Breitwiesenstraße 13, 70565 Stuttgart since 01.11.2013. You can contact us under 0711.7861-3920
