Foundations for the new European DCVM of sanitary specialist Van Marcke. This huge project of warehouse and offices is a CO2 neutral project, and aims to become a flagship for Van Marcke in terms of environment friendly building.
The Atlas screw piles were realized for TV Willy Naessens / Stadsbader, as foundations for the structure of the warehouse.
For and in collaboration with Betocor, specialist in industrial concrete floors, and VK Engineering, we have developed an economical and ecological alternative by using rigid inclusions Omega combined with an innovative calculation method.
Then on the south side of the site, the plot is bordered by a newly constructed slope. To allow pipelines to be placed along this slope at a depth of 1,5 meter and to stabilize the slope, we developed a solution using soil mix, up to 8 meter deep with a profile every 1,1 meter. This part of the work was assigned by the client directly.
With this flagship building, Van Marcke aims to obtain a BREEAM Excellent certificates, which has driven us to go for greener solutions when participating in the project.
Another specificity of this project was the low headroom available for the execution of the rigid inclusions Omega. We adapted our machine in order to work under just 12,5 meter headroom.
