To minimise noise and vibration transmission and to reduce additional deflection during construction, the steel structure of the new University of Amsterdam building was isolated by CDM solutions

The redevelopment of the Roeterseiland campus includes a diamond polishing factory and several faculties of Amsterdam University. A second phase in Nieuwe Achtergracht 166 will include new educational facilities and offices.

To minimise noise and vibration transmission and reduce additional deflection during construction the steel structure was isolated using precompressed CDM-CHR-BOX spring boxes with a resonant frequency of 3.5Hz

Precast concrete panels were decoupled from the main structure using a combined solution of CDM-SEB, CDM-STRIPĀ and resilient dowels.
