LIGHTENED SYSTEMS ON THE UPPER FLOORS

Not only foundations, but also upper floors! With MODULO system we have erected an administration building in Hadimkoy, Istanbul, creating a void space under the flooring, thus lightening the mass of the interstorey slabs and improving the seismic behavior of the whole structure. In fact this formwork in polypropylene combine a lighter weight in comparison with the traditionally used inert material with a higher load-bearing capacity. Moreover, it can be installed faster (up to 100 m² / worker / hour), without the need of lifting devices: the ideal solution to obtain a lightening of the upper floors of the building without using materials which can be difficult to handle on site.
