Production lines for facade elements

Architectural facade elements for the new hospital of Kortrijk: both first and second phases

All the elements consist of a base beam, 4 vertical parallelogram-shaped columns and a top beam

Production sequence:

  • Separate pour of the 1st phase of the base beam
  • Inverted casting of the base beam
  • Turning and moving precast base beam to column cast position
  • Separate pour of the top beam 
  • Pouring columns onto precast base beam
  • Placing precast top beam on column forms
  • Casting top beam on the columns

In this way, all the components are cast separately with a high-grade finish and the diagonal tolerance of ±2mm is achieved, and above all the separate precast elements form a monolithic unit.
