Modern office buildings in Prague
AFI Vokovice consists of two separate office buildings with 6 and 8 floors designed by the renowned architectural studio DAM architects. The vision for the project was to create a modern and comfortable working environment with green areas between the buildings and on the roof. The buildings fulfill the requirements for a LEED Platinum certification, which is the highest environmental class.
Facade cladding in curved shapes
BB fiberbeton delivered 9.700 m2 of GRC for this project. The mounting solution with embedded stud-frames utilises the possibility for a hidden mounting which gives the result a monolithic expression. This solution requires minimal technical maintenance. The facade elements are 12 mm thin and coloured in BBf no.01 standard white.
Facade cladding from BB fiberbeton utilises the formability of GRC and help shape the idea of the building and architectural expression. Our GRC facade elements do not compromise neither strength nor durability. The versatility and formability of GRC makes it an ideal material for both simple and complex shapes and curves.
Through design and manufacturing we help architects, entrepreneurs, and builders create unique, durable, and sustainable facades. Whether you are starting construction on a new build or embarking on a renovation project, GRC is suitable for both.
Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) is incredibly versatile and grants you an architectural design freedom with almost endless possibilities. With the formability of GRC you can achieve any geometry and with a surface designed for your specific project. GRC is a lightweight material and our cladding elements are typically only 12 mm. Thus, making it easier to work with and transport whilst also easing the load on buildings.
GRC is an excellent facade material if durability and sustainability is of great concern and importance. GRC is durable for more than 100 years without any technical maintenance and it does not dent, rot, corrode, nor burn (class A material). With a sustainable material and an environmentally friendly production without toxic materials, GRC elements from BB fiberbeton are ideal for environmental certifications, such as LEED, DGNB, and BREEAM.
GRC is made of white cement and fine aggregates and reinforced with glassfibre. Elements are produced using a special spray-technique that allows for a low water/cement-ratio, a low thickness, and a high strength.
