The Budova Landererova 12 building is located on the Danube waterfront in Bratislava city, close to the Eurovea shopping centre and the Slovak National Theatre. The basic concept of Eurovea City was designed by world-renowned architect Ricardo Bofill, showcasing the modern architecture of the 21st century.
Engineered by PRODIS plus s.r.o., the Budova building is an ideal choice for companies that look for a new headquarter. The building offers 26,000 m² of rentable commercial space, which includes 15 storeys building above ground, 359 parking places, terraces, city views, a dining room, etc.
The unique load-bearing skeleton
The load-bearing structure of this building is formed by the non-standard skeleton. The entrance portal is dominated by 10-metre-high exterior leaning columns made of raw concrete. The main challenge during the design was finding the optimal amount of concrete reinforcement to ensure the right dimensions of the load-bearing members.
Thanks to many functionalities in SCIA Engineer, PRODIS was able to achieve the right design for the Budova building. Modelling capabilities of SCIA Engineer allowed the engineers to model the whole complex structure effectively in a short time including the subsoil with piles.
Averaging strips together with the appropriate mesh refinement reduced the unrealistic peaks in result values around intersections of columns and slabs coming from the finite element analysis. The final design successfully passed a rigorous safety and economy audit.
Prodis plus was established in 1991 by Vladimír Kohút as an office specialized in structural engineering and diagnostics of structures. During the following years it was gradually evolving and extending its field of activities.
