Çanakkale Biga State Hospital

Having a total of 125 Bed capacity, Çanakkale Biga State Hospital consists of three blocks.  

Use of purpose of the building is effected our design and maximum utilization flexibility is taken into account as primary goal in designing process. Structural system is therefore selected as a system comprising of mushroom floors without beams and columns which placed at modular intervals. These systems are also preferred due to its construction simplicity and work speed. Building loads with respect to the use of purpose are applied by considering the architectural design constraints.

A total of 211base isolator and 69 sliders are used in the structural design. Sliders are only used in the elevators and at the bottom of the stairs. Base isolators are placed at the top of the columns of -4.20 ~ +0.00 levels, while sliders are put in between the slabs (of the elevators and the slabs placed at the bottom of the stairs) and the foundation upper level. Specific design earthquake spectrum of Design Basis Earthquake (DBE) with 475 years of return period and 10 % probability of exceedance in 50 years is used for the section designs, and spectrum of Maximum Credible Earthquake (MCE) is used for the determination of lateral displacement limits of the isolators.
