Felices fiestas patrias! On September 18, Chile celebrates its "primera junta nacional". In celebration of all things Chilean, we feature a few projects that we have built in that beautiful country.
Skylights are widely used to admit steady, even light into industrial, commercial, or institutional buildings. Installations range from purely functional daylighting for energy efficiency to elaborate aesthetic forms that dramatically transform space with breathtaking design. Whatever you can imagine, Geometrica can help make it possible.
Covering the plant presented a challenge. Following several expansions, the main area encompassed more than 5000m2 in an irregular shape. The solution? A Freedome® - Geometrica’s free-style dome.
Here's a short video with Architect Percy Diaz, Coemin's Projects Manager, talking about his plant's Freedome.
We’ll be exhibiting at “The Big 5 Saudi”, March 27 - 30, in Jeddah.
Launched in 2011, the “Big 5” is the Kingdom’s largest and fastest growing construction show. This premier event will bring together over 500 exhibitors from over 35 countries to showcase their latest products, technologies and services.
Our work on a landmark project in Malta is complete. DTR architects of Malta dramatically transformed a former naval hospital, unused for many years, into a stunning learning facility. Like a soft cloth, the Geometrica structure nests a planetarium sphere in the center.
Another eco-friendly Geometrica dome is near the city of Toledo. Coal will be stored under cover at the new power plant built for Therma Visayas. This circular dome spans 125m diameter and covers an area of 11,500m2.
A single storage dome is an achievement. What if more than one dome is required? Many industries often require multiple solutions to cover a wide range of inventories and equipment. For 25 years, Geometrica has covered stockpiles under some of the harshest conditions, remote locations and uneven terrains.
We’ve used concrete for millennia. The basic ingredients - stone, a burnt mineral binders, and water - have been mixed since antiquity. The Romans used it to create such wonders as the Pantheon in Rome, with its 43m diameter concrete dome. Today, concrete is one of the most widely used materials on the planet - some say second only to water. As a result, the cement industry has an enormous impact on the environment. Quality requirements and environmental consciousness now demand that raw and processed materials are stored under cover.
We're going on the road to bring our latest storage solutions to Cemtech Asia 2017, July 9 - 12 in Singapore at the Shangri-La Hotel. Started years ago by International Cement Review, this event has grown into Asia's leading cement conference and exhibition. This three-day event includes high-quality presentations by senior industry leaders alongside an international exhibition with world-class suppliers showcasing state-of-the-art equipment, innovations and technical solutions.
At Geometrica, we have provided structures for sports venues, convention centers, houses of worship, offices, and industry for 25 years. Have you ever heard of the saying “Time flies when you’re having fun”? It seems like it was only yesterday when we installed our first dome.
