Väre - The university campus made with the world-class structure


 
I had a great opportunity to visit an university campus building site last week in Espoo, near Helsinki, Finland.
The building site was very clean and tidy, despite the fact that the structure was very, very complex. The frame structure of this campus building was done with precast columns, hollow-cores and Peikko's DELTABEAM.
Please see below part of a layout drawing, where the green lines represent the Deltabeams, supporting the hollowcores. Very demanding structure, but still done efficiently with precast! Fantastic design!
