Do-it-yourself store infilled into existing block

To make a new shop stand out from the ribbon development around it, the building was knitted into the middle of the existing block like a snake-shaped Tetris piece. It was given a typical industrial form with a slightly sloping roof, and the facade was cut out at the front. The entire upper structure including columns, girders, walls, roof and exterior panels were made of S235 steel and were delivered and assembled on site. The heavy girders for the basement cover called for care and precision. In all, more than 76 tonnes of steel were processed. The anthracite-grey JI WALL 1000 VB M facade panels were supplied by Joris Ide, as were the 0.75 mm type 106 galvanised Steeldeck roofing sheets. The roof cladding itself is made of PVC and the whole construction was fire proofed. Elongated skylights were fitted in the new roof areas where necessary.
