GRC cladding for concert hall and congress center
Uppsala Konsert & Kongress
Henning Larsen Architects
A non-traditional concert hall
Uppsala Konsert- og Kongresshus is a located in the city’s historical centre in the modern Vaksala quarter in Sweden. The concert hall is located on the 6th floor and is result of a close collaboration between architects, engineers, and acousticians. The result is a non-traditional concert hall with exceptional acoustics.
Formable wall cladding
GRC was chosen for this project based on the material’s unique formability, which made it possible to design a wall cladding that is not only architecturally interesting, but also contributes to an incredible acoustic experience.
BB fiberbeton produced 2.000 m2 GRC for the interior wall cladding of the concert hall. The wall elements are mounted with embedded stud frames to fulfil the wish of a hidden installation. This mounting solution gives the final look a clean and solid expression.
Durable, lightweight, formable
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.
