Prague 2016 | Plasterboard

Real Madrid Official Store

SpainSpainCompany Name : DIMAPLAC

Project description

The Real Madrid Official Store uses Placo solutions to create a curved and aesthetically beautiful finish. As there are no two parallel lines in the building, and thus no corners, the execution of the project was an exceptionally complicated task. All the meeting points of the building are curved, creating highly complex geometries. To achieve this the installer had to carefully study each in order to choose a suitable product and system to be able to create these curves and movement, with an excellent final finish. This project is made up of passive protection systems and interior decoration on the ceiling and partitions. STD, PPM, standard 6mm and 4PRO laminated plasterboard were used, in addition to Q2 or Q4 finishing levels to obtain excellence on each finish despite the dividers, curves and meeting points which were created. The execution of the project was challenging and forced the team to use tools which were more appropriate for design than for site-work.
