Project details

The new building from the Mediterranean Institute for the University of Nice is an architecturally impressive design. Such a design required the flexibility that only post-tensioned concrete slabs can provide.

That’s why DYWIDAG-Interspan was commissioned to design and post-tension the slabs for the building, sited on a 4,500m² site in Nice, capital of the magnificent Cote d’Azur.

All slabs were executed in architectural concrete and required PAN-stressing from the top in many locations.

DYWIDAG-Interspan’s flat slab post-tensioning system offered the client the greatest flexibility, which enabled the architect’s vision to be realised, whilst also creating the best possible durability and strength.

DYWIDAG-Interspan also provided the following value add-ons for the project:

  • A consulting Structural Engineer Services
  • Coordination of tendon layout with openings and technical installations
  • Design assistance with complex staircases
