The new building of Tenerife Airport has a Kalzip Standing seam roof

The Tenerife South Airport’s connection building is expected to increase the airport’s size by 50 per cent

In 2018 the Government of Tenerife decide to extend the Island’s Airport. For the amount of 53,9 million euros the new connection building was planned with Casadevall & Sayeras arquitectes commissioned to design the building. The new building will house, as a priority, security control filters and provide continuity from the gates to boarding lounges and the departure and arrival halls.

Kalzip is the specialist for airport roofs

In the past, architects have repeatedly relied on Kalzip for the planning of airport roofs. As a result, a certain know-how has developed at Kalzip over the years. This know-how was the key to success when it came to the tender for Tenerife Airport.

The curved roof, which shelters the entire interior space, is the main element of the project. It is composed of curved lattice beams and a light deck-type slab, complemented by the metallic finish of the roof based on aluminium standing seam Kalzip system, with a low reflective patina finish surface. The build-up utilises a double layer of rock wool insulation and Kalzip polyamide E clips to provide thermal and acoustic properties according to the project specification.

In the end over 11,750 sqm of Kalzip 65/333 in Kalzip AluPlusPatina Nature mill finish surface were installed on the new junction building.

Special design for a Junction Building

“We do not know of another passenger terminal in which a new ad hoc building has been designed basically to contain the security controls. We are talking about approximate dimensions of 150 meters long by 95 deep. Our proposal aims, by means of a soft design « gesture », to encompass, cover, the entirety of the new space. We achieve this with an arc segment with a circumference of radius 150 meters. With this formal strategy, the façade surface is minimized, which we envisage entirely glazed. Thus, from the new departure lounges and the adjacent circulation space, it is possible to continue enjoying the marvellous maritime profile.” Said Dolors Sayeras, one of the projects leading architects.

Linear transverse skylights emphasize the curved character of the roof and direct passengers in their transit from the ground side to the air side, achieving a diaphanous and light interior space, diffusing the light evenly thanks to a semi-white and white false ceiling permeable to vision.

Kalzip Roof System offering Sound Performance over Aberdeen Event Complex

A high acoustic performance was needed for the new Event Complex in Aberdeen

Able to host international conferences, industry leading exhibitions and live performances, The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) opened in 2019 to wide acclaim for both its facilities and the structure’s stunning appearance: attributable in part to the choice of a roof design featuring Kalzip® standing seam profiles.

In fact, the manufacturer helped evolve a high-specification build-up which – once current restrictions allow concerts and conferences to resume – will provide an acoustic performance that can prevent sound break-out or any disruption from what is an unusually noisy setting.

The TECA is built for a capacity of 15,000 people

Aberdeen City Council has hailed the development as being expected to boost the country’s economy by £63 million a year. The main building, constructed at a cost of cost £333 million, has already hosted acclaimed bands and crucial business conferences, most notably the Offshore Europe Expo in 2019.

Representing a key element in the council’s long-term strategy, the extensive structure was designed by the highly regarded Keppie Architects and built by Robertson Construction. In addition to preventing noise disturbance from music events, the facility’s proximity to Aberdeen Airport, with its numerous commercial flights and helicopters ferrying workers out to the North Sea oil and gas platforms, further raised the bar on acoustic performance for the 15,000 capacity arena, and led to the involvement of Edinburgh based specialist consultancy, Sandy Brown.

Appraising the acoustician’s involvement, Sandy Brown stated: “During the design stages, we highlighted the need for significant areas of sound absorbent treatment to control reverberation in the arena and conference halls, and undertook computer modelling of various early design options. Then as part of the commissioning, a large arena sound system was used to simulate worst-case amplified music levels in the arena and main conference halls and the noise levels were confirmed to meet the criteria at all nearby dwellings.”

An Outstanding sound reduction was the main key for Kalzip

Kalzip® was able to supply the project team with a wealth of technical data and acoustic analysis from other high profile projects it has been involved with across Scotland; including the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow.  This therefore enabled the manufacturer to work with the architects and acoustician on evolving the ideal roof build-up to control both the noise of performances and the sort of low Hertz reverberation generated by helicopter rotors.

In order to achieve an outstanding 55 dB sound reduction figure, the roof features a bespoke Kalzip® system comprising 14 separate components, including rock mineral wool slabs for acoustic attenuation; while the 1mm gauge, 65/400 profile version of the manufacturer’s world renowned aluminium roofing system, with a stucco embossed finish, weathers the system.

The manufacturer’s ability to offer site rolling further facilitated the installation of 100+ metre lengths of the profile direct onto the roof structure, thereby avoiding the need for overlaps anywhere over the arena and enhancing the weather resistance of the envelope.

Kalzip® duly provided a 25 year guarantee for the completed installation through the system will deliver a minimum 40 year service life. With more of the material employed for cladding walls and the other roofs to the exhibition complex, a total of 27,000 m² of the 65/400 stucco embossed profile were supplied for the contract: the success of which has led to further work with Robertson Construction such as at Bertha Park in Perth.

In addition to the technical advantages of the new TECA, the architecture of the project should also be emphasised

The 7 stations of the Orange Line in Bangkok – Kalzip supplies roofing sheets

Bangkok’s metro network is getting a new rail line.

Rendering of the Overground Metro Station – © Wikipedia CC

In 2017, the foundation stone was laid for Thailand’s new mega project. A complete metro line is to be built within seven years. At Easter time, the new MRT Orange Line is scheduled to open in 2024.

New construction and extension to the existing metro network

In total, the Orange Line is to be 35.86 km long and have 29 individual above-ground and underground metro stations. The first phase of construction is 23 km long and includes 17 of the 29 stations. About 14 km of the line will be underground with twin single-track tunnels, and about 9 km will be overground. The line will then start at the Taling Chan underground station west of the city centre, cross under the Chao Phraya River near the Somdet Phra Pin Klao Bridge and will connect to the MRTA depot located at the authority’s current office building. Further east, the planned Yellow Line is crossed at Lam Sari station. At Khlong Ban Ma station, the line merges into the elevated section and finally ends at Suwinthawong station.

Start of Kalzip installation in January 2021

A complete roofing concept was planned for the sections of the elevated railway line. For the 7 overground stations, Design Concept Co. Ltd planned with a hard roofing that should be sustainable and durable. It quickly became clear that a Kalzip roof was the right choice. The first roofing sheets for the first of the 7 stations were delivered in January 2021.

Panama Cruise Ship Terminal

Kalzip covers the new cruise ship terminal in Panama City.

With a total area of 20,000 sqm, the new Panama Cruise Terminal is to become one of the most important cruise ports on the tourism routes of the American Pacific. Thus contribute significantly to the growth of tourism in the Republic of Panama. The planned project by the architectural office MALLOL Arcitectos allows berthing of two cruise ships with up to 5,000 passengers each. Two large ships with a length of up to 380 metres/1,247 feet each can dock at one of the two piers.

The terminal itself is located directly on the Amador Causeway in Panama City, near the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. The construction of the terminal will enable a new 14-day South Pacific route for cruise ship operators.

The heart of the terminal is the large roof with more than 16,000 sqm of Kalzip 65/400 aluminium profiled sheets with a material thickness of 0.9 mm. The special feature is the Kalzip profiled sheets coating (PVDF in the colour Dark Pastel Green Metallic). This coating contributes to an architectural highlight of the terminal.

 

The roof structure of the cruise terminal is designed as a triangle. In aerial view the entire architecture, including the two piers, looks like an arrow.
