Abstract

During the last decade a lot of attention has been paid to sustainability of structures. Reuse of existing buildings, limiting environmental impact and reuse of elements were applied in practice. In general, reuse of elements, with for instance the use of a donor skeleton, was applied on a very limited scale, as this reuse often comes at a price. In 2018 there was an opportunity to apply a donor skeleton on a larger scale in an office building of 6200 m2. This paper will describe the process of design and construction of this special project, and will derive lessons learned in order to increase application of upscaling of building elements in future projects.
