Video: Covering Coemin's Cerrillos Plant
Covering a mineral ore processing plant presented a unique challenge. Following several expansions over the years, the main area encompassed more than 5000m2 in an irregular shape.
There was no way to fit a conventional structure on this site. The ultimate solution? A Freedome® - Geometrica’s trademark for free-style domes.
At Coemin’s Cerrillos Plant (Chile), a three-sided structure with rounded corners and a dimple in one of the sides was designed. From above, the Freedome looks like a heart with spans reaching 90m.
Here’s a short video with Architect Percy Diaz, Coemin’s Projects Manager, talking about his plant's Freedome.
