In the district of Öster Mälarstrand in Västerås, the block förseglet is being built, which consists of a several new residential buildings. Located close to both the city center and Mälaren, the new quarter has a good location. The houses will be classified according to Miljöbyggnad Silver and Svanenmärket, which shows that the building has a low environmental impact and high energy efficiency. The neighborhood has a vision of being a car-free area, so there will be plenty of green areas and activity and social areas.
The project has used PETRA® of various models, both standardized and customized. PETRA® Slab Hanger is used to support hollow-core slabs and make openings and configurations into hollow-core slab floors. Also, PC® Beam Shoes and our hidden console PCs® have been used which is fire-protected and are easy to install between beam and column.
The frame consists of DELTABEAM® which has helped to create long spans with architectural freedom as there is room for more flexible floor plans and more surface area for the building's given height.
By using a DELTABEAM® solution with bolted connections a fast assembled slim floor construction was quickly erected, saving both space and time.
