- An impressive project with a height of 18,400mm
- Special column base due to the maximum column pressure
- 41 x 29 metres (5 floors)
- Special steel construction in the conveyor area
The customer wanted the maximum possible number of floors with sufficient free height per floor. The floor load capacity had to be at least 500 kg/m2 distributed load; however, the column pressure on the concrete subfloor was not allowed to become too high. Installing a mezzanine floor with a height of more than 18,400 mm could be difficult in the available space. An extra challenge was the short-term delivery and installation of the multi-tier mezzanine floor.
The theme of the maximum permissible column pressure on the concrete hall floor emerged during the engineering process. After several consultations with our engineering department, we came up with the ultimate solution: a base foot with 8 welded ribs on an extra weighted foot plate of 500x500 mm with a horizontally welded connection plate for the passage to the top. To be able to achieve a height of more than 18,000 mm and to be able to perform this properly from an assembly point of view, a division in the column length has been chosen.
