Esbjerg Towers consists of three 57-, 35- and 23-meter high towers and will contain 308 student homes as well as 110 hotel apartments.
All towers consist of a circular core with triangular balconies on the outside and elevators and stairs in the middle. Industri Beton won the entire precast contract based on a solution with 25,000 m2 triangular SL-decks (“pizza slabs”) fitting in with the circular building geometry.
In the project, the SL-decks are spanning from facade to inner core. The solution eliminates all on-site casting and ensures a 100% precast slab structure, resulting in a significantly lower construction time. Another benefit of the solution is the possibility of replacing the many load-bearing walls separating each apartment unit with cheaper non-load-bearing walls. Besides a reduction in the wall costs, the solution provides the option and flexibility for changing room divisions later on.
