General Description:

The foundation and floor solution consist of 1.0 metres of expanded clay and a concrete structure above.

Why Expanded Clay:

The building is on soft soil, and a special foundation was needed. Possible solutions were either concrete piles or a lightweight compensation foundation.

Key benefits:

The installation of the expanded clay was done by special blowing trucks, which was very efficient and convenient due to a lot of pipes and technical installations.
