The office and production building of Gira in Radevormwald/Germany consists of two nearly identical halls. The ground plan of each hall is 71.5 x 22.5 m. The interior of the halls is completely devoid of columns due to the characteristic steel arch construction. The loadbearing structure is composed of welded steelplates.
