70 000 m² of floors made of MaxiDalle
The design for the new hospital in Chambéry, with a capacity of 671 beds, combines modernity with architectural, town planning and environmental qualities, since it will be the first HQE and BBC certified hospital in France.
With a floor surface of more than 70 000 m² to be cast,the construction method was subject to a detailed study lasting almost a year. The consortium (GRM, Dumez Groupe, VINCI and GCC) chose MaxiDalle formwork designed by Alphi: an innovative concept guaranteeing high set-up rates and therefore optimum construction costs and observance of deadlines. One of the advantages of MaxiDalle—the optimum re-use of the plywood integrated in the frame—is proving its worth in this particular project, since the same sheet of plywood will have been used up to 50 times.
