The making of the new Education and Self-Study Centre (OZC)
The new Education and Self-Study Centre (OZC) of the University of Tilburg is currently under construction. Completion is set for May 2018.
The building, a collaboration between KAAN Architecten and VORM, will support all faculties within the university by providing auditoriums, lecture rooms, meeting places and cafeterias for the students to meet and study. This video shows the special operation from day 17 of the construction process: the positioning of four 50.000 kg concrete beams with a span of 50 meters. Two cranes were needed to achieve this, weighing in at 650 and 750 tons respectively.
