Customer Project

The 7-story building, with 5,300 m² of floor space, is used as a vocational school. The dimensions (length x width x height) are approximately 46.0 m x 20.0 m x 21.8 m.

Model Parameters

Model

The building was built as a solid structure. The building envelope and the main supporting elements (foundation slab, ceilings, walls, columns, downstand beams, etc.) consist of reinforced concrete using the cast-in-place concrete construction method. The roof structure was designed as a purlin roof.

The building's façade above the ground floor has an inward offset, resulting in a floor area of approximately 46.0 x 17.2 m. The ground floor, as well as the first and second floors, have different irregular floor plans and no continuous supporting structure. The third and fourth floors have regular floor plans; the façade of the fifth floor has another offset, built as a stacked story.

Structure and Structural Design

The structural analysis was carried out using a 3D model in RFEM, as this program provided the best results for the building's complex structure, including skew columns, irregular floor plans, and the façade's multiple offsets.

The large slab spans and the 5-story façade, which is supported by irregular, skew columns, represented the greatest challenges in this project. Loads were partially carried upwards over two floors by means of tension elements, as a direct load transfer to the structural components below was impossible. The wooden roof structure was modeled to determine the loading for the solid structure.
