Extreme precision required
This is a prestigious new development, as the Sports Campus has to be extremely functional, exude professionalism and inspire people to get the best out of themselves. The building will have a curved façade, clad with decorative prefab concrete elements. Above this will be an awning that will fluctuate in height and depth and incorporate stainless-steel shingles – an extremely attractive feature, but a very laborious one to construct. We worked out all the dimensions for this precisely with the manufacturer. So far the construction process is running smoothly and the result is stunning!
The design for the building is very sustainable. Energy is supplied by a heat/cold storage system, while on the roof we are installing 1,000 solar panels and covering the remaining area with sedum. This will improve insulation and reduce the building’s carbon footprint. The requirements in the area of insulation are extremely high. That is not a problem, however, as we are working with the utmost care and carrying out meticulous monitoring to ensure all requirements are met.
