Peikko Group’s Turkish subsidiary Peikko Turkey has received a substantial order for 40 sport halls in Istanbul. The order comprises more than 350 tons of precast concrete connections consisting of column shoes and anchor bolts, which are used to connect sports halls’ columns to foundation. Construction works started in August 2016 and halls are estimated to be finished in April 2017.
Metropolitan Municipality of Istanbul is the investor of the sports halls and the main contractor of the project is Demars Insaar Ltd. Sti. Ozancan Prefabrike Ltd. Sti. is responsible for structural design and manufacturing of all buildings’ frames which are based on standardized structure. The sports halls are being built at the grounds of high schools throughout the city of Istanbul. The sports halls are designed to be used for various sports activities, responding to the needs of local high schools but also serve local sports clubs and community.
Peikko’s bolted connections were chosen for fast, safe and precise erection of the columns. Besides increasing the speed of whole construction significantly, column shoe solution was also a great choice for architecturally modular designed sports halls.” states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
