Utrecht, The Netherlands
4 new concert halls and a renovation of 1 concert hall
During the renovation of Muziekpaleis Vredenburg 4 new stages were build, which have increased the total seating capacity to 5500.
The high acoustic performance which was specified for the building was achieved by isolated box-in-box constructions compromising: CDM-FLOAT high performance floating floor, a combination of CDM-QR and CDM-WH hangers for the walls and CDM-CC60 hangers for the suspended ceilings.
Structural isolation of the building was achieved by using CDM-SEB bearings as lost formwork for in-situ poured concrete, CDM-STRIP for prefabricated concrete elements and CDM-FIX for decoupling structural steel elements.
System solution: CDM-FBT
Existing floating floors were isolated using CDM's frozen bearings technique. The bearings, once defrosted, provided the required deflection and performance
