Freiliegende Stahlkonstruktionen kommen heute dank Fortschritten in der Brandschutztechnik auch bei anspruchsvollsten Bauaufgaben zum Einsatz. Deutschland, Österreich und die Schweiz können hierin von den jahrzehntelangen Erfahrungen insbesondere im angloamerikanischen Raum profitieren. Eine der weltweit besten Kennerinnen dieser Bautechnik legt dar, wie sich hohe Qualitätsanforderungen mit einer kostensparenden Differenzierung vereinen lassen
