Torre Di Pietra Office Building

BrazilBrazilCompany Name : Diviplus Acoustic Solutions

Project description

The Torre Di Pietra Office Building, spanning 28121 square metres, is a commercial building that stands out as one of the most modern and functional in the city. It meets all the requirements of the corporate segment, as well as more complex specifications. A particular demand involved the development of a drywall system for office partitions that offered acoustic comfort and allowed occupants to alter its electrical and hydraulic installations, without risking access to the facilities of the neighbours. For the ceiling, there was a need for regular access to the facilities due to eventual layout changes, besides aesthetic demands of moldings and level changes required in the project. Different Placo solutions were installed to meet these requirements, allowing excellent performances in terms of flexibility, protection against humidity, sound insulation and aesthetics.
