For the new office and industrial hall of Mabo Invest in Lelystad, Peikko supplied its column shoe connection for anchoring the 8 flat columns, which resemble walls.
The support-free installation of these columns was fast, safe and efficient thanks to this system, says Albert Bakker, project manager at Nieuwenhuis Bouwbedrijf.
Column shoe connections where the perfect solution for a problem we faced; placing the precast columns on the pedestals in a non-paved environment. Supporting the columns and pouring the gains costs a lot of effort. Now we erected the columns without supports. “Piece of cake” according to the responsible construction team; it was literally finished before lunchtime.Albert Bakker, Projectleider, Nieuwenhuis Bouwbedrijf
