CRAIG HOUSE, SCOTLAND

Craig House dates from 16th century and is a significant historical estate on the periphery of Edinburg. Today it is listed among buildings and sites in the A category of national heritage, and is used as a hospital.Our New Elevetor Tank is used to build the concrete structure ‘in situ’, released from heavy columns and beams. A tank was built to provide more efficient water management system. It took just 4 days to build the tank, providing 1,900 m3 of underground water storage space, available also for inspection and maintenance. The amount of concrete used to build the tank with New Elevetor Tank is decreased comparing to standard structure containing pillars and beams. The placement of the formwork was easy and fast, and no a... More

Le Nuage by Phillipe Starck

Project • By GeoplastWellness Centres

Le Nuage

Le Nuage (French for “cloud”), designed by Philippe Starck, is a fitness and wellness complex in Montpellier, France. It the first inflatable private building in Europe and it has been poetically designed to resemble its nebulous epithet. For this purpose, Starck used a polymer known as ETFE and created a transparent membrane that envelopes around the building facade.Geoplast contributed to this project by providing 4500 m² of Skydome that ensured the lightness of the structure itself. Skydome is a reusable waffle slab formwork that allowed the realization of bidirectional waffle slabs with large spans while reducing the use of concrete and decreasing the self-weight of the building. The use of Skydome elements resulted in a smooth and plea... More

KILOMETRO ROSSO

Science and Technology Park Kilometro Rosso near Bergamo consists of numerous buildings, all connected with continuous walkable and drivable green area. Geoflor was used for the construction of a parking lot, routes for maintenance vehicles and any service roads, for example for Fire Brigade, around the new buildings. A total of 2.200 sqm of drivable lawns have been created. The choice was dictated by the fact that Geoflor is a solution that allows parking and transit of even heavy vehicles and also allows subsequent maintenance operations on turfs, such as aeration or small excavations, without the need to restore the entire flooring package. Geoflor offered these advantages:- Protection of the the turf and roots f...

FISHT OLYMPIC STADIUM

CHALLENGE Russia’s bid for the 2014 Winter Olympics was part of a broader goal to step back onto the world stage as hosts of major sporting events (the country’s last event was the Moscow Summer Olympics back in 1980). The challenge was threefold: to convince the International Olympic Committee that Russia had both the vision and the infrastructure to host such a major event; to develop the popular summertime coastal resort of Sochi into a world class destination for winter sports, and to design a stadium flexible enough to facilitate the Olympic ceremonies, then act as a venue for FIFA World Cup matches and, finally, become the home venue for a local football team. INNOVATION For the first time, an Olympic Park has been designed a... More
