Refurbishment and Renovation of Grossmatt School Complex, Hergiswil
1st place in competition
This school building from the 1970s will be renovated to create a modern learning environ-ment for the pupils of the municipality of Hergiswil. To do so, the premises and access will be remodelled through various conversions and extensions, and at the same time the load-bearing structure upgraded to bring it in line with the current state of the art.
With the installation of new earthquake-resistant walls made of reinforced concrete, the build-ing will then fully meet today's earthquake resistance requirements. It was also possible to take the latest scientific findings in earthquake research into account by allowing for the loca-tion-specific design response spectrum. The various adaptations and additions to the load-bearing structure are being executed in a reinforced concrete construction, which will be used to realise the necessary remodelling and strengthen the structural fabric where necessary.
