Intelligent Execution Using Cobiax Slab Technology - continued

Intelligent Execution Using Cobiax Slab Technology

It is more convenient to park in and drive out of the parking spaces, because no intermediate columns obstruct the view or restrict the width and depth of the parking spaces.

At the same time, the slender ceiling constructions facilitate a reduction in the depth of the foundations, in spite of a slab span width of 14.50 m.

Both the reduced depth of the foundations and the reduced number of columns thus lower the required concrete quantity by 700 t and many tonnes of reinforcement steel, which in turn reduced the overall construction costs.

Less is More

The Cobiax reinforced concrete slab system has several advantages. In comparison to a conventionally-designed and manufactured reinforced concrete slab, the use of the plastic void formers, made from recycled plastic, can verifiably reduce the use of materials, in particular concrete.

Therefore, reducing the emissions of environmentally-toxic pollutants by up to 20%, with the effect of the dead weight reduction on the complete structure right down into the foundations, and the related further material savings not yet being taken into account.

This high reduction in the use of construction materials – triggered through the void formers – has a substantial effect on the sustainability certifications common today for modern construction projects.
