Lecture “Betondag” – 17 November 2016

During “Betondag” on November 17, Dirk-Jan Kluft will lecture about the construction design of ‘New Hoog Catharijne”.
The new design of Hoog Catharijne will integrate this shoppingmall with the city centre. The city will be connected with two shafts from the Vredenburg through the shoppingmall with the trainstation.
There will be a new entry on Vredenburgplein with two large entries and walkinglines to the station Utrecht Centraal. On this side  there will be also a new entry, that connects the Stationsquare.

The project in total concerns various complex sub projects among which an underground car park, 5-layer basement, with 1.300 parking spaces.
Water will be brought back in the Catharijnesingel. Above the Catharijnesingel, next to the Gatehouse and the Bridge Building, you will find the ‘Stadskamer’ (City Chamber). It determines a lot of the look of the design, both on the exterior and interior. Steel support structures were designed for the glass roof and façade. The floor of the Stadskamer is made of glass. So underneath your feet you can see little boats go by.
