In suburban areas with lower density, the SolHyve system can be used for buildings
of at least 2 storeys. In urban areas where the density is higher, the SolHyve system
can be utilised in buildings of 3 storeys or higher.
The SolHyve system can be used in buildings with a depth of up to approximately 14
meter in cross-section, in case of average ceiling height. Larger floor depths can
be obtained by realising an atrium or concourse between the building wings. The floor
depth can be larger in hall buildings. The maximal proportion between the net floor
height (h) and floor plan depth (d) is approximately 10d / h < 43.
The system can be used for instance for multi-storey office buildings, hospitals,
hotels, apartment buildings, retail centres and various types of hall buildings at
least 5 meter in height (e.g. a sports hall, railway station, airport terminal, factory
hall or a storage hall).
A part of the ground around the building preferably consists of grass/vegetation,
wood chips, gravel or permeable paving. This part of the parcel should consist of
a minimum of impermeable surfaces, like asphalt or closed stone paving.
