As part of the hybrid city challenge, Smart Cast offers a structural pre-slab solution in Kerto LVL integrating the already existing techniques developed by Smart Cast that its tracing and pre-cutting to measure from digital data ( BIM).
The proposed solution is applied to floors separating storey levels in residential buildings where acoustics are predominant and the spans do not exceed 8 meters.
Description of the process :
- The Kerto LVL pre-slab is self-supporting or almost self-supporting, which limits the need for shoring during the installation. Once placed between two bearing supports, an additional ready-to-use concrete is poured to form a homogeneous whole.
- Cold-formed metal section is integrated longitudinally into the thickness of the Kerto LVL pre-slab create a non-slip connection with the concrete compression slab.
- The process provides a profile of the tensile performance of Kerto LVL panels and steel as well as the compressive strength of concrete, exploiting the best of those three materials.
This process reduce the carbon footprint of buildings by significantly increasing the proportion of bio-based materials in floors and to guarantee an acoustic reduction in accordance with the regulations for residential works (+/- 53 DB). This process does not require the addition of false ceilings or floating screeds as well as painting.
The absence of false ceilings highlights the aesthetic qualities of Kerto LVL panels of the ceilings. The cozy atmosphere of solid wood brings comfort to the inhabitant.
This process makes it possible to compensate the cost of the Kerto LVL pre-slab by eliminating screeds and false ceilings, thereby optimizing the construction cost.
These advantages are added to the native advantages of the Smart Cast process :
For general contractors and their subcontractors, Smart Cast allows an optimization of the construction cost thanks to productivity gains brought by industrialization and an approach of the global cost. Our technology allows a team to manage all the stages of producing a slab including embedded services : installation of printed formwork, reinforcement, installation of electrical/hydro wires.
For promoters, Smart Cast technology makes it possible to personalize plans "just in time" without disturbing coordination on site. Our unique industrial process using digital and parametric data gives the buyer
