Theatre – Auditorium in Llinars del Vallès

Girona · Sistema GHAS

For the Theatre / Auditorium in Llinars del Vallès (Barcelona-Spain), Steel for Bricks’ technical department worked hand-in-hand with the Álvaro Siza studio and clearly committed to the GHAS system in this project.

Challenge

  • Adapting the solution of the façade to the design requirements that were sent to us from Álvaro Siza architects, and creating an enclosure to clad a structure made from concrete walls.

Solution

Steel for Bricks’ Technical Department worked hand-in-hand with Álvaro Siza’s architects and the collaborating engineers and collaborators, even visiting the site in Oporto. The GHAS façade system was used, with calculations based on a single structure, without the need for intermediate supports along the height of the façade, which meant a cheaper solution could be designed.

Furthermore, since there was no need to provide or design the layout for these intermediate supports, the solution was implemented considerably quicker.
