Renovation of the Szent András Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Hévíz
During the renovation works of the Szent András Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Hévíz, the developer and the renovation planner encountered a surprise. During the renovation works of the Szent András Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Hévíz the developer and the renovation architect encountered a surprise. They did not expect to find decades-old structural elements in the building structure at the outset of the works, during the breaking up of the old layer structure. Given the situation, the new layer structure - gravel filling, concrete course, waterproofing, thermal insulation, and blind concrete - could only have been constructed with additional costs and effort. Therefore, on the recommendation of the architect the developer chose to use Energocell® foam glass granules. By using the granules both the gravel filling and the thermal insulation can be replaced in one work-phase. As a result, there was no need for the structural concrete blocks to be broken up, saving time and money during execution.
