NEUGRAF - Nová Grafická is a new residential development project at the heart of the Smíchov district of Prague 5. NEUGRAF consists of 177 apartments divided over 10 floors.
Prague’s newest building development stands out with its terraced roof lined with lush greenery, making it a perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Because of the strict acoustic requirements, anti-vibration systems were used to mitigate vibrations and structure-borne noise (Building Base Isolation). After all, this is a residential building, which is exposed to vibrations from the “Smíchov” traffic tunnel running alongside the building.
Located in between several other buildings, NEUGRAF had to be acoustically decoupled using a flexible solution. Across the entire surface area (bathtub foundation) and up the outer walls of the building, a Stravibase Raft resilient continuous supporting bearing system was installed.
Nested between two reinforced concrete structures, the Stravibase Raft full-surface anti-vibration rubber mats act as a worthy alternative to the originally prescribed PU-foams enclosed in waterproofing layers, and effectively isolate the building from structure-borne noise.
