On the A9 Nuremberg – Munich in the direction of travel to Munich, a new motorway service station was built in Fürholzen West. The plant provides a heat and power generation concept based on the Energy Plus standard and can supply energy in an environmentally friendly manner with the help of around 7,200 m² of photovoltaic space and a combined heat and power plant.

The two buildings are linked by a curved double-gabled pitched roof. In addition, about 175 car parking spaces below three carport axes, an electrical charging station, in which there are four electric fast charging stations, and a hydrogen basement have been constructed.

The roof structure of the motorway service station was erected as a folded roof construction consisting of M-shaped roof trusses perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the building. These are ablated on the circular pipe supports in front of the façade and founded on a reinforced concrete floor slab. The roof cladding consists of a load-bearing sheet metal on a load-bearing OSB board. The entire bottom side of the roof construction is clad inside and outside with triangular veneer laminated wood panels.

The tank roof with an area of 1,100 m², which adjoins the service station, is supported by clamped steel columns with cantilever arms up to 8m on both sides.
