Maximizing Flexible Floors In Queens

 

With space at a premium, voided slabs add valuable opportunity.

 

PROJECT VOIDED SLAB ACHIEVEMENTS:

  • Enabled a flexible column layout

  • Load reduction: 37 psf in voided areas

  • Created large open spans with flat soffits


12-02 Astoria in Queens is taking full advantage of voided slabs.

Designed by Morali Architects, the 12-02 Astoria project posed a unique set of challenges. The CobiaxUSA supplied system provided several solutions to help meet these design and construction goals efficiently.

“Cobiax voided 10” slab allowed us to create a column free 30’-0” span, therefore allowing flexibility with interior wall locations as well as providing a sustainable product. The total composite structure is of fireproof construction and met all seismic requirements. The Cobiax design team provided organized drawings for our engineers to adapt plumbing/mechanical chases and vertical circulation etc. After forms were removed, we applied a clear varnish to the underside of concrete for a loft like appearance, the natural appearance along with high finish of kitchen cabinets, floors etc. provide beautiful balance. The Building was rented very quickly and is a commercial success.”

Popular Finishes. The varnished concrete finishes contrast very nicely with the modern kitchen surfaces, making the end result very attractive for tenants.
