Description of the building and specification of the interior finishing package:
An apartment building with commercial premises is built on piles. The façade is finished with a composite panel which is decorated by a visually impressive frame. The building is built with a monolithic concrete post-slab system. Exterior walls are built on a modern thermoprofile frame and insulated with Umin=0.142 W/m2K. Floors and roof ceilings are monolithic r/b panels, and as a modern solution, pure concrete casting is used in the interior design. The walls between the apartments have a double structure to ensure the required soundproofing. A sound-absorbing layer is installed on the monolithic slab bearing the floor and a concrete subfloor is poured. The terraces on the roofs are made on wooden beams and the board is impregnated pine.
The soundproofing of the walls between the apartments is 55 db. Other non-load-bearing walls are partitions with a painted single gypsum board on a metal frame which are filled with mineral wool for sound insulation purposes. The height of the floor/rooms is 2.8 m. The load-bearing structure of the roof is reinforced concrete and polystyrene foam Umin=0.11 W/m2K is used for thermal insulation. The roof covering is a two-layer SBS bitumen roofing. Exterior doors with glass have an aluminium profile.
The windows and balcony doors are high-quality wooden windows of the German type with a triple glazed unit, which meet the increased sound insulation requirements (windows facing the junction 45 db). The external doors are fire and soundproof wooden doors. The apartment doors are connected to a staircase door, a lock core ASSA or Abloy. The concrete floors of the basement and stairwells are finished with a dust barrier, the lightweight block walls of the basement are painted. The walls of the staircase are plastered and painted.
