EXECUTING AGENCY: University of Thessaly

TIME OF COMPLETION: 1992 - 1998

FINANCIAL SCOPE OF WORK : 2.600.000.000 GRD

The project involves the construction of a building for services of the University of Thessaly with floor plan of approximately 900 square meters and a height of eight storeys. Required a special study for the construction of the foundation, because the original planned diaphragm wall could not be constructed due to the requirement of the Service to build underground car parking. So, we have made the application of advanced new technologies and built ground cement piles, which in combination with phreatic piles allowed us the excavation of the basin for the construction of watertight basement below the level of the horizon of the sea which is about 20 meters from the site.
The project has many construction characteristics, combining the construction of reinforced concrete and expanding glass curtain walls with special metal structures. It was built a central metallic dome, wth height of approximately 15 meters which is the link of the coastal complex of buildings at the University of Volos.
