Therme Delta-X

Therme Delta-X engineers bring Therme's architectural vision to reality with highly complex engineering solutions, numerical simulation, theoretical expertise, as well as extensive practical experience.

Technologically Advanced Engineering Solutions

Therme Delta-X is the structural engineering company within Therme Group, with its headquarter in Stuttgart, Germany. It develops technologies to construct the buildings of the future, creating new environments of health and wellbeing. 

Therme Sinsheim’s curved façade was realised by Therme Delta-X.

Theoretical and Technical Expertise

Since its first project over 30 years ago, Therme Delta-X’s engineers have brought the Therme concept to reality with highly complex structural engineering solutions completed to the greatest degree of safety. To achieve this, the Therme Delta-X team uses its expert theoretical knowledge alongside the latest software tools in numerical simulation, earthquake engineering, modelling, optimisation, nonlinear structural
behaviour and computational fluid.

Therme Delta-X’s ground-breaking structural solutions are also exquisite works of art. Therme Group facilities’ vast retractable roofs, curved façades and awe-inspiring structures in steel and glass were all realised by Therme Delta-X.

As well as being visually impressive, Therme Group resorts’ unique structures are technological marvels.

Sophisticated Numerical Simulation for Structural Behaviour

One of the many things that makes Therme buildings unique is their complex and elegant engineering. Therme Delta-X realises these structures through advanced design solutions that improve building transparency – referring to a reduction of materials, resulting in lightweight structures and slim profiles that allow for a broader scope of use. 

The experienced team of engineers at Therme Delta-X transform textural and sculptural ideas into highly sophisticated numerical simulations that are then used to analyse structural behaviour. 

In this way, Therme Delta-X creates optimised structures with slim and elegant forms that meet the complex designs developed by Therme ARC’s architects. All this is achieved while maintaining structural integrity with zero compromise on the robustness and safety of Therme buildings.

Numerical simulations are fundamental in generating complex structures that allow for transparent engineering solutions.

Therme Bucharest: An Engineering Tour de Force

Therme Bucharest is home to the largest retractable roof ever constructed in a seismic zone, weighing 150 tonnes and extending across some 900 sq. metres. To ensure the stability and safety of the entire structure, Therme Delta-X were responsible for the structural planning of all steel and glass elements. The epitome of sophisticated engineering, the facility can withstand earthquakes that exceed nine on the Richter scale.

Meet the Delta-X Team

Prof. Dr. Albrecht Burmeister VP of Technology
VP of Technology
The work of Professor Burmeister is characterized by pursuing excellence in engineering. Optimizing structural solutions to create architectural freedom is part of his performance spectrum. The aim is to realize structures that are, of course, safe, but also economical and beautiful. The solid basis of consequent optimization is the application of numerical simulation together with expertise in design and construction. His work as a VP of Technology is characterized by implementing high-tech numerical simulations to a broad spectrum of engineering solutions out of structural engineering, machinery and plant engineering together with automotive applications. His scientific lecturing activities focus on structural dynamics, stability and nonlinear behaviour.
