Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic

Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - With an X-shaped floor plan, the architectural concept of this building created a new highlight in the urban development of the city of Hradec Králové. Originally, all external surfaces should have received an orange-painted facade. This concept was completely rejected due to the high-quality concrete surface finish.
Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - For the visibly remaining surfaces of the wall structure, architectural concrete of the very highest quality was required - free of pores and without any variations in the shading.
Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - The flexible waler arrangement of the VARIO GT 24 wall formwork elements allowed the realization of the required tie pattern.
Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - Regularly arranged circular windows and a defined joint and tie pattern in the wall area.
Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - The attractive colour design helps visitors to find their way round.
Hradec Králové Library, Czech Republic - The architectural concept of the interior design provided clear lines and well-arranged structures of the building elements.

We worked intensively with the PERI formwork in the planning stage so we could realise the prespecified joint arrangement of 2.50 x 3.30 m. For the use of self-sealing concrete PERI offered us a customised and capable formwork solution based on the VARIO girder formwork. The owner is very satisfied with the results achieved.

PERI oplossing

  • girder wall formwork elements of 3.30 x 2.50 m in size with flexible waler arrangement
  • feasibility testing by the architectural concrete team (architect, construction firm, concrete supplier, formwork supplier) using a test wall
  • formlining fixed from behind
  • VARIO GT 24 with waler positioning governed by the tie arrangement
