Pelecon nominated for 2020 National Steel Prize

Posted on: 15 July 2020

The National Steel Prize is awarded twice a year to the best project – new construction, renovation or renovation – in the Netherlands or abroad, which is carried out entirely or partly in steel. In the Industrial Construction category, Pelecon has been nominated for the Rhenus New Logic III project in Tilburg.

We have developed this special project together with partners Heembouw Architecten and Reijrink Staalconstructie. Pelecon partner, Mack Stolwijk explains: “In the design phase, we worked with DOKVAST and Habeon. We also managed the options. Structurally, we looked for the limits of the column spacings in combination with the storey floors. To bridge the span of 18 meters, we provide the floors with heavy HL beams. Another challenge was the oval roof construction at the front with the large overhang. ”

After the DO phase, Pelecon elaborated the technical design in 3D. The working drawings of the foundation also come from the engineering company. Mack continues: “During the BIM sessions, we transfer the model to the suppliers. They can then put their own products in the 3D model and work from there. ”

As a director, Pelecon checks whether the parties involved deliver what has been agreed in advance. “We also carry out follow-up checks at work,” says Mack. “In doing so, we check, insofar as visible, whether the steel construction is mounted as shown in the drawing.” Pelecon has already carried out one follow-up check.
