100% pass in the IKT LinerReport 2017 with Brandenburger Liner
For the fourteenth time the IKT – Institute for Underground Infrastructure has released its annual LinerReport. The report is based on more than 2,100 pipe liner samples, which were taken on buildings sites in 2017 for the purposes of quality control and then examined by the IKT testing centre for pipe liners.
The quality standards from the process approvals for pipe liners are then only met if the liner achieves a pass in all four testing criteria at the same time. In 2017 only nine out of 25 installation companies managed this, achieving 100% passes in the liner testing. One of these is Max Bögl Stiftung & Co. KG with the Brandenburger Liner.

First project using "maxmodul" modular construction method completed
After a construction period of a mere four months, the new Am Schwarzen Steg residential building in Bayreuth, Germany, was handed over to tenants in mid-February 2018. With around 1,300 square metres of living space, the building was constructed for our client Vonovia using over 80% pre-fabricated and fitted solid "maxmodul" modules manufactured by Max Bögl Modul AG. A building of this size would have taken about a year to build using conventional methods.

Aid project for Senegal (West Africa) – Village women excited about modern millet milling machine
Thanks to our Group’s great engagement and a €6,200 donation, a desperately anticipated desire of the women of Back Seck has now been fulfilled: a modern milling machine has been procured and a new building to house it has been constructed. While the millets previously had to be laboriously ground by hand, today a diesel-fuelled machine is ensuring a quantum leap in simplifying the work.
