Education wrapped in steel17 May 2022
Education escorts us throughout our entire lives – as do the buildings in which we acquire our knowledge and skills. We recollect their architecture, interior design, pieces of furniture, and even their smells. Some have impressed us more than others, but none of them have left us indifferent. In our memories, these buildings are profoundly connected to our experiences and emotions, including the people we connected with there.Over the last few decades, education has evolved and so have the requirements for educational buildings. Architectural design has significantly increased in importance, technology has conquered interior design, and user comfort is a key concern, all of which are important factors accompanying the learning experience. Architecturally attractive buildings not only express the prestige and status of institutions but contribute to a sense of wellbeing for their users.Project news
ArcelorMittal Construction introduces Cofraplus® 80: a brand-new lightweight alternative to prefabricated concrete floor slabs1 July 2021
Using an 80 mm high trapezoidal steel profile alongside a lower volume of poured concrete, Cofraplus® 80 outperforms a traditional precast slab in a greener and more environmentally conscious package.Product news
Cofraplus® 220 combines the outstanding resistance of the patented steel profile with the performance of a ribbed reinforced concrete slab. The total load bearing capacity results as the sum of the resistance of both elements as no composite action is taken into account.
The high values of the moment of inertia and the bending moment guarantee large span without propping.
Cofraplus® 220 sheets are available with thicknesses of 1.13 mm and 1.25 mm with a maximum length of 9 m.
Best in class

• Spans up to 5.5 m without temporary propping
• Easy handling and fast installation
• Clean and safe construction
• Advantages of a continuous slab design
• Maximum flexibility using wings or connectors
• Ideal for car park structures, office buildings, and renovation projects
