Concrete consumption and self weight are decreased using Holedeck. Conventional concrete is needed. HOLEDECK system saves volume of concrete but is similar to a conventional bidirectional slab in steel consumption and runtimes. Therefore, concrete consumption is decreased, reducing structure self weight, and steel reinforcement in the same way.
Total built volume
Reduction of the order of 20% of the total volume built. You can gain a whole plant each 5 floors, and you can significantly increase the floor area for the same volume.
Assuming between 10 to 20 % savings on facades and interior walls. Reduction between 10 and 20 % at pillars and / or load bearing walls. You can delete entire items as ceiling and / or technical floor. It can support installations on deck ribs, eliminating ancillary restraints.
Decrease of energy losses of the building between 10 to 20 %, in the same proportion as the enclosure is reduced. Can take advantage of the thermal inertia of the entire mass of concrete that forms the slab, making a heat accumulator that reduces energy consumption and improves comfort. Holedeck becomes an ideal solution to meet the standard NZEB.
Compatibility with bioclimatic systems: you can design a system of specific installations, allowing the integrated usage of the most innovative and sustainable technologies (geothermal energy by Canadian wells, solar energy, type ventilation plenum, etc.). Also can be easily adapted to a project with more conventional installations.
The geometry of the slab gives an excellent acoustic performance. Thanks to the geometry of the system absorbs a wide range of the sound spectrum. The reverberation time is reduced to 1/ 5 with respect to a flat concrete slab. No acoustic suspended ceiling are needed to achieve CTE DB HR regulation.
Services registrability is improved because no demolition, or paralyzing the activity is needed . The costs of maintenance, or reconfiguration and reducing interference with other activities. HOLEDECK is a 100% registrable, and performing plenum ventilation, easy cleaning of the ducts without requiring demolition or specific equipment is possible, facilitating the elimination of the Sick Building Syndrome (SBS,tr).
