FOUNDATIONS AND EXTERNAL WALLS
The loadbearing structures of the building are supported by a monolithic reinforced concrete foundation. Under the building there is underground parking. The bearing walls are made from reinforced concrete panels, underground floor, floor structures, walls and columns – from prefabricated reinforced concrete. The exterior walls of the building are insulated 150 mm, plastered and painted. The facades of the porches are glazed.
The partitions between apartments are made from prefabricated reinforced concrete panels plastered and painted on both sides. The interior partitions are made from metal profiles, filled with mineral wool and lined with plasterboard slabs. On the partitions where fastening of the kitchen cabinets is planned, plywood is installed to increase the bearing capacity under the drywall sheets. In the rooms with high humidity, the wall construction consists of a metal frame covered with moisture-resistant plasterboard.
CEILINGS AND STAIRS BETWEEN FLOORS
Prefabricated reinforced concrete floor panels are used for interfloor structures, covered with a layer of dry concrete with polystyrene for additional sound insulation. Stairs – concrete steps on a metal structure, covered with a protective layer of epoxy resin. On the stairs there are painted railings. In one building there are four porches, the second building has five porches.
