Advantages offered by Holedeck makes it the optimum structural system for high-rise building:
- It allows a reduction up to 20% of the total built volume. One floor can be obtained each 5 floors, and you can significantly increase the floor area for the same volume.
- Total built height can be decreased maintaining same number of floors. It means 10 to 20 % façade saving and same values for partitions, and a reduction of 10 and 20 % at pillars and / or load bearing walls.
- Also, hieght clearance can be increased up to 50 cm per floor maintaining total built height. You can delete entire items as ceiling and / or technical floor. Services can relay directly on HOLEDECK slab ribs, avoiding fastenings.
Behaviour against horizontal stress
Holedeck solves horizontal diaphragms for high-rise structures. It provides higher stiffness for the same weight compared to a solid slab or a traditional waffle slab, decreasing buckling risk.
It mix a monolithic behaviour in every direction with a reduced self-weight, wich means less inertial stress for seismic prevention, reducing saving on dimensions and structure reinforcement against horizontal stress.
Mixing HOLEDECK Waffle slab with any conventional seismic-stress prevention system (core, walls, crossbeam), or with any groundbreaking tecnology (seismic dumpers) high rise buildings can achieve seismic- proof structures, with different perfomance levels.
