The project of Quick Park retail park in Olawa, Poland includes approx. 20,550 m² of total area and consists of three elements of differing sizes divided into varying functions:
- Retail and Services segment,
- Leisure and Retail segment (ground floor for retail, first condignation for leisure),
- Car park.
The object has no basement level and is covered with a flat roof. Main load-bearing role is carried by prefabricated reinforced concrete trusses rested on footings. Roof construction is planned to be based on steel girders articulated with truss' capitals. Modular spans of the girders reach from 87,00 to 22,300. The leisure zone had been roofed with light steel frame. Multi-condignation car park had been roofed flat with reinforced concrete monolith, which allows for the creation of additional parking spaces. Elevations of the building have been created with panels resting on a frame attached to the main trusses and concrete sill plates. Elevations of the car park had been covered with openwork curtains.
Due to difficult geological conditions, two different foundation solutions were used. For the leisure and car park segments, large mass of the structure and a low-strength soil forced the use of DSM columns for ground support. Remaining segments have a traditional, direct foundation.
What made the project successful
The design process was based on Tekla Structures 2016 for modeling, detailing, drawn documentation and interagency coordination. Attached model consists of a reinforced concrete structure (prefabricated and monolith) of the entire object as a draft project and a steel construction as a concept. Usage of Tekla software had significantly shortened the process and erased the risk of collisions and incompatibility with the final project.
