Nursery Vlogaert - 12.028


Complete mission for civil and structural engineering.


Construction of a nursery for 44 children, a psycho-medical center and a center for social promotion. This exemplary 'passive' building consists of four floors and has a total usable area of approximately 2300 m².

Specific features

To maximize the floor area large perimeter cantilevers were created. They are supported by strategically placed concrete walls passing through the upper floors. To permit the complete insulation of the building in line with the requirements for passive buildings, the columns of the upper stories are set back from the edge beams. A 'strut and tie' system is used to transfer the loads from these beams to the columns.
