In Aarhus, the project “BaseCamp” will be built on Defco’s old plot in the Katrinebjerg district. The 17-story highrise tower consists of 570 small apartment units intended for students – all with their own bathroom and kitchen.
After a close and productive dialogue with the turnkey contractor, JFP, Industri Beton won the full precast contract based on an SL-deck solution with a number of cost- and time saving solutions:
- SL-decks are delivered as 12 meter double-long units reducing the number of slabs and crane lifts by 50%
- All slabs along the facade are delivered with straight sides and cast-in edge reinforcement, so all on-site edge casting can be avoided
- By reversing the span over the corridors and producing the SL-decks with cast-in cross beams, approx. 200 corridor slabs have been reduced by 75% to 50 pieces
- In areas over light partitioning walls, SL-decks are produced without LAC concrete, thus creating zones of massive concrete and eliminating the need for filling cores with concrete
The project is expected to be finalized by the summer of 2022.
