Rieder Smart Elements has produced fiberglass reinforced concrete elements for the University of Boston, which now adorn the facade of the new Center for Integrated Life Sciences and Engineering.
Due to its formability fibreC can lead smoothly over edges. fibreC 3D formparts are only 13 mm thin and available in various forms such as U, V, or L-section. An intelligent mounting system with integrated fastening anchors allows quick and economical installation. As a pillar trim, atikka, pilasters, window sill or as a creative design element fibreC 3D formparts offer a variety of design possibilities for architects and planners. Despite their length of up to 3.6 meters in a piece they can be fixed with only two fastening points per element. Due to the low weight of the just 13 mm thin elements and the high spans width less material in substructure is needed. Therefore fibreC 3D forms provide an economical solution for the entire building envelope.
+ shaped elements with only 13 mm thickness
+ concealed fastening with integrated brackets
+ offsite pre-assembly of fastening brackets
+ fast and easy installation onsite
+ monolithic appearance
+ less sub-construction due to weight and span width
+ only 2 fastening points per element
+ no scaffold needed, same lifting Equipment as for glass elements
Life Sciences Building, University of Vilnius
Joint Center for Live Science, University of Vilnius called in short form JGMC Welle
is a big and challenging project at the university campus in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The architect Gintaras Caikauskas created a new building which is complety
different from the existing buildings at the campus.
We delivered fibreC elements in different shapes and we installed
flat panels in a special color Terracotta as well as Polar White and
formparts in the same color.
