In 2020, Swissport unveiled a new office building adjacent to its cargo complex at Brussels Airport. The four-story structure, known locally as building 704, provides over 5,000 sqm of office space and serves as the hub for Swissport operations, management, and various customers. Designed by Archipelago and Group Infrabo, the building features a diverse precast concrete façade, employing Aalborg White cement based beige flat panels on levels 2-4 and a black UHPC structure fence on the first level, produced with Extreme UHPC.  

Extreme UHPC is the first commercialized product under the InWhite Solution serving as an innovation engine for high value adding and technologically advanced White Cement based products. Based on the Cementir’s sustainable binder technology FUTURECEM, Extreme has unique properties and characteristics with a high compressive strength, and excellent properties in terms of tensile strength, shrinkage and durability.

In this video, Nikolas Schack from C-Concrete shares the user experience of Extreme UHPC in this project, delving into the challenges & solutions, with a focus on meeting the requirements of architects and project owners.

Nikolas Schack

Concrete & Quality Supervisor , C-Concrete

Started in the precast industry in 2007 at SVK-Architectural concrete as a concrete formliner. After 5 years, Nikolas progressed to Supervisor/Quality Controller. In 2015, started at Cordeel Group as a concrete plant operator in the precast department. When the opportunity arose after 1 year to become Quality Supervisor of precast and steel factory, he eagerly accepted. After graduating in concrete technology in 2017, he also became supervisor for the in-house concrete plant. As a result, his love for concrete in whatever execution possible has only grown and his hunger for more knowledge has certainly not yet been satisfied.
