Amsterdam is the number one student city. Students and recent graduates experience a difficulties in finding a suitable place to live. The project OurDomain Amsterdam South East offers them a solution. The contractor Blauwhoed is constructing 1,500 high-quality new-build studios and apartments of which 950 will be made available for students.
Holendrecht Centre was the largest vacant office building in Amsterdam. The transformation of this building into a campus area with apartments and other facilities is a fantastic add-on to the current office and industrial estate Amstel III.
In the coming years, this mono-functional area will be transformed into a modern urban neighbourhood. All three complexes will be constructed in rapid succession. One special detail of this major project is the exterior facade. It will be produced separately in a factory in Germany. A combination of classic and modern construction methods has been chosen.
Due to a long-term partnership and confidence in the products, the applicator Seal Force BV has chosen a complete range of Sika products for this large-scale project.
- SikaHyflex®-250 Facade was used for sealing the building envelope to provide optimal watertightness in highrise constructions due to its high and lasting movement capabilities.
- Sika Boom® Control and SikaBond®-TF plus N for bonding the membranes provide airtightness around the facade elements.
- Sikasil® C was used to seal all bathrooms and sanitary joints and Sika provided Sika Boom®-400 Fire for various passive fire protection applications to create compartmentation.
