Prefabricated gymnasium structures - with Peikko column shoes & bolts

Time is money. And the projects which are in hurry need special solutions. One example of a specially good solution is a precast concept to be used for gymnasium structures for high schools. The precast solution (structures casted in a factory environment, then brought to the building site) is saving time and limiting the work force near the crowded school neighborhood.
This is particularly the case if there are 65 gymnasiums to be build within a 6-month period. Yes, you read correctly, sixty-five different gymnasiums built within six months.
And naturally the precast solution is using Peikko columns shoes and anchor bolts, all secured for seismic conditions.
Where is this happening? Istanbul, Turkey. The place for great speed. Watch out the Turkish basketball team after a couple of years !!!!
