Lunchlecture BAM – Zalmhaven tower Rotterdam
Preparations for the construction of a new residential tower in the popular Scheepvaartkwartier in Rotterdam are in full swing. With a height of 215 meters it will be the tallest building in the Netherlands and a new impressive landmark for the city. In the preliminary phase, the structural design was made by Engineering firm Zonneveld. The design involved a monolithic cast-in-place concrete structure. Due to safety issues and the construction speed BAM converted this design into a precast concrete construction. BAM Advies & Engineering is now working on the detailed design of the tower. In this lecture BAM will explain the alternative structural design as well as explain the construction method with a rising factory.
