Bavaria, Germany-based contractor Anton Sedlmaier has teamed up with Austrian crushing and screening equipment specialist Rockster to demolish a Roche Group building in Tutzing, near Munich.
The pharmaceuticals company had owned the building since taking over Boehringer-Mannheim in 1998 but closed it four years later and ordered its demolition in 2019. The site will host a new clinic as well as a commercial development.
Sedlmaier purchased the R1000S in February after previously renting mobile crushers to process construction waste.
Taking down the building produced 25,00 cu m (882,00 cu ft) of demolition debris, and the company believes the machine – with an inlet opening of 960 x 720 mm (37 x 28 in) – will allow it to be more flexible when processing the debris and natural stone.
After the completion of the demolition debris crushing project, the crusher will be transported to one of the two gravel quarries owned by Sedlmeier.
