Key Achievements

  • For a greater spacing between the hangers, three different size of metal studs we used (48mm, 70mm and 90mm). The store currencies were made with double structure and a plasterboard between them to isolate the installations of each one.
  • In the cinemas, escape route insulation walls were built using separate double structure considering FR boards with 15mm thick, 2 layers in one side and 3 layers on the other side.

Key Challenges

  • Fixing of hangers for ceilings – stability and safety
  • Comfort and freedom for the shopkeeper to make any changes to your store installation
  • Material vertical transportation
  • Compatibility between lighting/decorative projects and drywall solutions
  • Wall and ceiling installation to ensure acoustic performance requirements
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Job site logistics
  • Safety during the installation
