Volledig Scherm Sluiten

A new laboratory for Cambridge University based on the Addenbrooks Hospital site.

Featuring 489nr DELTABEAM® @ 2.75km, the design required very low response factors due to sensitive lab equipment.

The origional cast in-situ design was for a 700mm deep slab but after a lot of work it was shown that D32-500 DELTABEAM® Composite Beams along with 300mm deep hollowcore with a 200mm structural topping would meet the vibration performance specfication.

DELTABEAM® along with other offsite methods allowed the construction time to be 20 weeks faster and reduced over 500 truck deliveries when compared to the cast in-situ solution.

Our onsite construction program was 20 weeks faster and saved over 2,500 man weeks in comparison with the envisaged in-situ solution. Additionally the overall carbon footprint was significantly reduced with fewer truck deliveries and high quality offsite production of the steel Deltabeams and precast concrete units
