fiber-reinforced concrete cladding / 3D / panel / metal look
BUS DEPOT - THIAIS
Prefabrication and installation of a "Ductal® shell" for a bus depot covering an area of 2,215 sq. m.
The Ductal® panels are used for cladding the inside and outside of the building. This "skin", which is 3 cm thick and covered with a spotted pattern, and 22 mm deep, is manufactured in large blocks made of one piece.
The parts with a double inverted curvature have required meticulous studies for modelling its geometry: the layout of the points required by the architects had to be evenly spread out in spite of the distortions of the layout grid created by the curves and counter-curves.
Thus, the ultra high-performing fibrous concrete (UHPC) designed in close cooperation with Lafarge makes true continuity possible between the building and its base.
