Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics was built in the University Campus in Dejvice and is directly connected to the CTU campus. The construction includes structural modifications and extension of Building B (Technical Canteen), and the new Building A on the site where currently the incubator building is located, which was demolished.
Building A consists of ten above-ground storeys and three underground storeys with an automated parking system intended for lecturers and students of the CTU. The old five-storey building of the Technical Canteen (Building B) was rebuilt into an eight-storey building and its ground plan was extended too. The buildings will serve as facilities for the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics. Workrooms, laboratories, lecture and presentation rooms, incubator, computer classrooms and canteen were constructed there.
A new fore-facade on the extension will be fully glazed on the inside; for the exterior façade, an ETFE (ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene) insulating membrane foil was used, which was suspended on a separate steel structure.
Complex spatial shape of the steel structure. Short time for designing, supplying and installing steel construction. Out of the 5 np is an outer sheath made of ETFE foil pads in front of the glass-aluminum facade of the building. This outer shell is anchored to a supporting steel substructure, consisting of obliquely-inclined columns and obliquely-horizontal longitudinal members. Behind the ETFE foil around the perimeter of the building is a revision porous bridge. The casing pillars are mounted on a ceiling plate above 4. np and attached to the consoles extending from the ceiling beams.
What made the project successful
The complete steel construction of the building was built and fitted in the required time. The resulting shape (geometry) of the structure and the dispersion of the measured forces in the drawers respects the requirements of the designers and the relevant standards.
