Key Challenges

In the design of the representative congress facility, the main challenge was to achieve high acoustic comfort in conference rooms of varying sizes and large congress hall. A very important criterion for the selection of materials was also an aesthetic appearance.
The executive challenge was: the precise layout of the gypsum plasterboard and it’s adaptation to the irregular shape of the rooms; Correctly determining the course and design of the dilatation, taking into account the unusual shape and very large surface of the ceilings and the execution of multilevel ceilings with extremely varied heights.
