The concrete structure works have been completed by around 45%. Building A slab over the first floor and Building B vertical elements for the first floor were being executed at the end of June 2023. Hydroinsulation and backfilling work around the basement walls in buildings A & B was completed as well as excavation works for the foundation of the retaining wall towards the north of the property have been started.
In this video we highlight that the balconies are connected with thermal break structural elements, which minimize heat loss transfer, help to reduce external noise in the apartments and ensure the prevention of mould forming over the long term.
The excavation works have been completed and the two tower cranes installed. The foundation slab of the second basement has been completed and vertical elements, as well as the car ramp between basements 1 & 2, are currently under execution – the second basement accommodates technical spaces and a car access ramp to basement 2 of building C that is part of phase II development.
The foundation slab of the common first basement for buildings A & B was 80% completed (4 of 5 casting plots completed). In parallel, the reinforcement works of the vertical elements will follow – the first vertical elements have already been cast. The common basement for phase I development (buildings A & B) accommodates underground parking places, storage spaces, technical rooms, vertical circulation (lift and staircases) as well as waste management spaces with direct access from both the interior and exterior of the buildings.
The drilling of reinforced concrete piles has been finished for excavation safety along our neighbour’s land borders. The reinforced concrete foundation piles under the buildings have been completed as well, together with all the quality tests including load capacity tests. Excavation works have been completed for Building A and will shortly be finalised for Building B as well. A layer of lean concrete was recently cast under the building’s foundation and the neighbour’s border retaining wall towards the southwest has been executed during this time. The main water connection as well as preparation for the later utility network connections has been executed within the site boundaries.
The construction works at Quartier Azuga phase I started on the 14th of November 2022. Site organization, demolition of existing structures on the property as well as land clearing was completed by the end of 2022. The drilling of over 96 reinforced concrete piles started at the end of December 2022. These piles are used as safety excavation piles to secure the safety of the excavation pit and our neighbours’ constructions. Additional 61 reinforced concrete piles are being executed as deep foundation piles under the buildings – these deep foundation piles are essential for the stability of the buildings. Excavation works started at the beginning of January 2023, while the cleaning of the lake shore in front of the property was underway by the end of January 2023.
