ELA container system for the Messe Stuttgart fire brigade

Messe Stuttgart, one of the top ten organisers of trade fairs, congresses & events in Germany, has put an additional hall into operation in 2018. In the course of this, the company's plant fire brigade also had to be strengthened in order to guarantee the safety of the larger trade fair grounds.

However, the premises were no longer sufficient for the larger troop, explains Ralf Becker, Commander of the plant fire brigade: "After the number of men in our plant fire brigade increased, partly due to a new exhibition hall that was put into operation in 2018, we have reached our limits with the existing premises. Although a fire station is planned and construction will begin soon, we had to find a good interim solution by then".

The fire brigade needed equipped office and recreation rooms, but also special rooms such as rest rooms, changing rooms and sanitary facilities. Demands that ELA Container can ideally meet thanks to its flexible space solutions. Equipped with air conditioning and large windows, they offer a very good indoor climate. Roller shutters also provide the necessary peace and quiet.

Some of the 13 premium containers and quality all-rounders will be used on the open-air exhibition grounds of Messe Stuttgart, while others will be used in the hall. For ELA Sales Manager Southwest Harald Denk, this is not a special feature: "For us it doesn't matter whether we set up the containers in a hall or outside. For the fire brigade, we were thus able to offer a solution that makes optimal use of the open spaces available on the trade fair grounds". In total, the fire brigade thus has more than 200 square metres of additional space available.

Since the new fire station will not be completed for a few years, the system will remain on the exhibition grounds for almost three years. In addition to the long availability as an interim solution, rapid delivery was a decisive reason for choosing ELA Container, says client Thomas Raach, Dipl.-Ing. Architect of the Construction & Facility Management department: "We obtained various quotations in advance. We were very satisfied with the quotation preparation, planning, consultation, delivery and execution by ELA Container. ELA was able to deliver quickly, reacted very flexibly, and offers excellent service".
