The building element 1 of the science park in Linz is a framed structure consisting of reinforced concrete with a total length of approx. 150 m and a variable width of 20-26 m.
The structure is made up of a deep basement, used as a parking garage, and a first floor with laboratories. The five upper floors are set up providing space for offices. Flat slabs made of reinforced concrete represent the floor plates. The columns are prefabricated columns consisting of spun concrete.
The entire structural system is stiffened by four reinforced concrete cores. What is especially noteworthy is that the first floor has no columns in some of the floor areas. A specific arrangement of hanging steel trusses makes this possible.
