University of Haifa, Terrace Building 2, Law Faculty – demolition and construction

The building was already connected to an existing structure. Therefore the new structure had to be compatible and also connected to the existing structure. The uniqueness of this project was that the foundations were drilled in rock and we had to dig a tunnel and elevator shafts. The work was performed in difficult winter conditions and we needed some creative solutions because it was adjacent to existing buildings.

 

 

Client: Haifa University

 

Supervision: Haifa University - Division of Construction

 

Starting Date: 1990

 

Delivery Date: 1992

 

Location: University of Haifa

 

 

Mode of Execution

The foundations were drilled in rock, involving a tunnel dug under the old building with temporary supports. A four-story high elevator shaft was built and connected to the tunnel. Ceilings were replaced according to the contractor's design – coffered ceilings designed to be compatible with the existing building built about 20 years ago, including on-site prestressed plates and cast beams. We managed to considerably reduce the client's costs and also finished ahead of schedule.
