MANTEGAZZA BUILDING, LUGANO / White Tank System on all five floors of the underground car park of Palazzo Mantegazza, located 15 metres away from the lake and exposed to an 18.8 metre water head.
The underground level was created using the underpinning process with suspended formwork: the Level 0 floor slab is cast, leaving openings through which to excavate down to the Level -1 suspended floor slab.
Then the formwork previously used for the Level 0 suspended floor slab is lowered and, when Level -1 is reached, the new suspended floor slab is cast. And so on down to the suspended floor slab at Level -5.
The walls of the White Tank are cast directly against the diaphragm.
