"Jesolo" Wave Towers

Venice - Italy

LegGO-FLOOR floor slab for 58 APARTMENTS SPLIT BETWEEN 2 high-rise blocks

In the seaside resort of Jesolo, in the province of Venice, these modern wave towers presented a new vertical challenge. 58 apartments split between two high-rise blocks located in a new and dynamic setting.

Two towers built over a shared basement equipped with a pool and outside space/garden, bearing the respective names Gold Tower and Platinum Tower. The Gold Tower, distinguished by its amber and warm exterior colour, features 16 storeys above ground level with 32 homes. The Platinum Tower has a metallic external appearance in a cooler tone and comprises 13 storeys above ground level with a total of 26 homes.

The construction of these two buildings certainly represented a technical challenge, as they are high-rise constructions on primarily sandy soil, located in a seaside town close to the beach. The objective was therefore to streamline as much as possible the tower complex: this was achieved through the use of 4,000 square metres of LegGO-FLOOR insulating floor slabs. Thanks to the extremely lightweight nature of this eco-friendly, earthquake resistant and energy saving material, it was possible to considerably reduce the weight of the two towers, thereby increasing the safety and speed of construction on site.

Moreover, Plastbau Solai slabs contributed to achieving a highly energy efficient building and to the well-being conditions being rated Class A.

  • From high-rise buildings to residential homes, our insulating formwork walls are the fast, economical and solid solution for your building project. 

  • Our all-in-one complete wall solutions per floor are delivered assembled and ready to cast.

  • The thickness of the concrete, which can vary from one project to the next, will be determined by your engineering firm. The steel reinforcement required will also be stipulated by your engineers.

  • Our insulating slabs have been designed to allow you to create floors and finish your storey levels with an extremely solid insulating ceiling.

  • the operation involves laying insulating slabs and their related reinforcement followed by casting a concrete screed which will therefore be reinforced.

  • the reinforcing steel and the height of the screed will be determined by your engineering firm according to your spans and the load-bearing requirements.

  • The insulating slabs are light and easily manoeuvred, and therefore easy to lay. They can have a span of up to 8 continuous metres
