Living lab Enci Rotterdam

Living lab Enci

In the expansion of the Quality Center of the ENCI in Botlek we will apply Warm Concrete for the first time in the Netherlands .

In Warm concrete is sand and gravel have been replaced by expanded glass. This results in a well-insulated concrete, 70% lighter than normal concrete. We will also design a slim staircase of Ultra High Strength Concrete (UHPC)  partially supported by a glass balustrade.
Thus the ENCI, in addition to their daily experiments with the composition of concrete, can show the application of these concretes  to their visitors.
