Unique Activities for Rotterdam The Hague Airport fire station

Posted on: 3 June 2020

Pelecon has been doing construction work for Rotterdam The Hague Airport for 20 years. In addition to the departure hall, Pelecon is also involved in the construction of the fire station. “We have done our utmost, with respect for the design of Moen & van Oosten Architecten and drawing on our broad experience, to achieve the best and most beautiful structural design for the fire station,” says Piet Peters of Pelecon.

SEPARATE FIRE COMPARTMENTS

“The building consists of 2 parts; the depot and the part with different living areas. The construction consists of a steel frame, steel roof and wall cladding, concrete floors on the first floor and a poured foundation on the ground floor. ” In total, 120 tons of steel were processed in the building. “To prevent fire spread, separate fire compartments have been created. We have also contributed to the detailing of the steel construction, so that it will cause as few problems as possible in terms of sound. We have also incorporated various environmentally friendly and energy-saving measures into the design. ”

TESTING ROLE

“We also have a controlling role in this project. In this way we test whether the materials supplied by suppliers meet all requirements. In addition, we check on site at the construction site whether important parts are actually built in accordance with the working drawings supplied by us. We don’t leave anything to chance. ”
