The first so-called N-beam was installed on 30 October 2019. This element with a width of 1950 mm and a height of 550 mm ensures that the newest building of the Radboudumc has a free span of 15.6 m. This type of beam has not been used for 25 years!
The nominations for the Betonprijs have been announced.
The prize is awarded every two years by the concrete association to leading projects. From a large diversity of projects, Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden has been nominated by the jury in the Utilities building category.
The winner of the Betonprijs will be announced during the Betondag on November 14 in the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam.
Aronsohn Constructies provided the complete structural design, as well as the specifications and detailed drawings and the calculations of the new Naturalis.
