To avoid moisture GreenZone is constructed using
open designs and pre-fabricated concrete sections
which has meant that everything is quickly covered
by a roof. All facing sections, for example, are
built on-site beneath a weatherproof roof. Furthermore,
the concrete beams and supporting pillars remain
unpainted to allow the concrete to dry completely.
Painting them too early would result in the moisture
being sealed in.
AND SCREWS MAKE REUSE POSSIBLE
All building material used in the project can be
reused or recycled. Components are bolted or screwed
into place instead of being nailed. This means that
everything from bolts to wooden material can be
reused. The adaptation of building material to environmental
factors continues to develop and this required more
careful planning since delivery times for suitable
materials has often been longer than is otherwise
the case. When there were no products that could
satisfy the strict environmental requirements the
contractor selected the best products available
on the market from an environmental perspective.
WITH SEVERAL FUNCTIONS
Material with several functions has been used instead
a material with only a single function. One example
is the ceiling's wood fibre panels that insulate
and form part of the cooling system as well as being
sound absorbent and a load bearing part of the structure.
