From the architect.
The School of Technology and Management of the Polytechnic Institute of Beja is a building of about 11600- sqm of construction area, set in a rectangular frame of 90×80 m2. The building was conceptually divided into five blocks from A to E.
The block A is the most impressive – a continuous pre-stressed concrete structure of 80,90m length. Its main characteristic is a unique portal frame with 50,80m span floating above school’s main entrance.
This portal frame consists of two columns, which are the circulation shafts, and a horizontal member containing two auditoriums for theory classes and an exhibition room at the center. That horizontal member of the portal frame consists of two longitudinal pre-stressed concrete box type beams
