Shop Building, Ermou, Volos

Shop Building, Ermou, Volos

The Project

Existing two-storey building, built in the 30’s, in the center of Volos, in the busiest commercial area, on Ermou street. The building consists of two sections and the aim is to renovate and rebuild it, in order to accommodate commercial shops.

 

Its peculiarity is the preservation of its perimeter columns and the method of its construction. The new building will have larger columns that will incorporate existing ones. The method chosen is the initial construction of the foundation, columns and the second floor ceiling slab of the new building, and then the gradual construction of the internal beams and slabs of the intermediate floors while simultaneously removing the existing slabs and internal columns.

 

A new “H-shaped” core was constructed in the center of the building to assure strength and stiffness against Earthquake. The lifts were architecturally desirable to be glass transparent in a lightweight metal frame and there were no concrete cores, so that they could be used as resisting elements for the earthquake. The slabs were made without beams internally, which allowed for easy passage of the E/M installations.

 

The construction method proved to be fast, economical and safe.
