Wasteland regeneration

24 April 2008

The Site of a Former Steelworks in Esch Alzette, Luxemburg is Destined to become the country's financial hub and construction on one of the first buildings is well underway. The crescent shaped building currently rising from the derelict site - the new head quarters for the Dexia Bank - is expected to be joined by other commercial buildings in the next few years.

Construction of the new concrete framed building is being carried out by a joint venture of Féix Giorgetti and Soludec. The cantilevered floor slabs on the main 76 m high building are only supported by two stair and lift shafts, leaving the internal space free of columns and supporting walls. The crescent shaped building is also linked to several smaller four and five storey structures which will form a central covered courtyard.

The joint venture is using Meva's Mammut wall formwork and KAB folding platforms to carry construct the complex structure, which is currently growing at a rate of 3,6 m every fortnight. The floor slabs are also being cast using MevaDec and standard SDT slab tables.
