Please describe the project specifications

2,100 sq. mts
Double Cone / Conic Figure.
Fixed membrane
Spans over 30 meters

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The client wanted to cover an entire commercial Plaza, and the proposal was to make a compression ring, and 2 floating masts, with this being a suspended conic structure we ensure that the entire Plaza would be free of columns within, nothing to block costumers view of the shops and common areas.
The client light up the Plaza by adding some color LED lights underneath the masts, given an extraordinary and colorful environment.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The wind analysis load of this project was really elevated, given that there is no higher building around the Plaza, and that the strength from the wind is above average in this part of the State, we had to ensure the behavior of the masts and membrane.
The membrane mounting, installation, and fixation was accomplished in barely 2 days, getting the piece up all together and working immediately.

What were the results of the project?

The result was an outstanding pair of cones, that concede an entire greeting to the people coming from the capital state (being this located in the entry highway of the city), and a remarkable sustainable new commercial place to work and shop.
