Antwerp, BELGIUM

The ZNA Hospital is a new hospital in the city of Antwerp (Belgium). It is very unique, because it is one of the first high-rise hospitals in the country. The hospital has 21 floors, of which 19 are above ground. The total surface of the project is almost 100.000 m2.

Airdeck was selected as the lightweight floor system for the total hospital structure (including the underground parking). Flexibility in the project was very important and Airdeck came up with a tailor made drilling protocol to allow future drillings in the hospital building structure. The contractor was also able to have a good construction speed by using Airdeck. 

The building structure is now finished and about 100.000 m2 of Airdeck panels were installed.

On the ground level, a tram will make a new connection in the Antwerp area. The tramway was installed on top of the Airdeck elements.
