Our hybrid halls, also known as mixed-structure buildings, combine steel and reinforced concrete elements. In this type of hall, the steel roof structure is supported on reinforced concrete posts. In these structures, reinforced concrete is used as a strong frame to absorb stress from usage and the environment, and withstand corrosion. As a general contractor for hybrid industrial halls, we put great emphasis on punctual completion according to the approved schedule.
A prefabricated hybrid hall has a number of advantages, which we emphasise when designing this type of building. Reinforced concrete is resistant to corrosion and is very strong, which is especially appreciated by investors who need a hall with one or two levels. It is also fire-resistant, making it a suitable material for fire-resistant internal partitions. This allows for an easier separation of multiple areas for different purposes within a single hybrid hall.
Given the structural characteristics of hybrid halls, they are particularly popular among investors from the furniture, textile, chemical and plastics processing industries. Buildings for these industries must meet stringent fire safety standards, which is why our designers recommend using reinforced concrete posts. The building is then finished with a lightweight and slim steel roof structure made with trusses, which ensures rigidity of the load-bearing system and has a lower deflection than steel plate structures, while ensuring easy routing of systems suspended from the roof – even quite sizeable components, such as ventilation ducts. Additionally, the truss structure of the roof provides some flexibility for the design of trade-specific works because it does not require the planning of dedicated system penetrations through its outline, and the free space between the bottom and top strip of the trusses is only restricted by the slim truss sections (diagonal cross-braces and/or vertical posts). As a result, the space below the bottom strip of the trusses can be used freely by the investor, and all trade-specific systems can be routed within the height of the steel trusses.
