Fish market with Tourist Information and Sea Food Centre in Bergen, Total area 2500 m2
The design of the building was developed from conceptual stage to workshop documentation. The building was designed on nearly pentagonal plan consisting of two parts. One part of the building is a 3-storey Service Part and the second part is a 2-storey Tourist Part. Structure of each part was mainly designed of steel with prefabricated concrete slabs supported on it. In each part there was also a reinforced concrete part of the structure with lift shafts and concrete floors.
Due to unfavorable ground conditions the whole building was designed on 22 jet grouting piles with the diameter of 1,8 m. The foundation of the building was designed as concrete box with numerous internal walls to ensure highest stiffness of the foundation and the best base for the structure of the building. Space gained by the foundation box was used to conduct most of the installations required for the fish market and its storage.
Beside the design of the structure of the building, the design included also all details required by the architectural solutions, like glass façade supports, substructures for internal movable walls and others.
