Heavenly Metal Strips

Clouds and aircraft designs attune the visitors on the “fascination of flying” while at the end of the runway markings visualize the landing on the fins. Expect dynamic media installations and well-thought-out exhibits around the world of aviation since the end of last year the audience of the new observation deck on the dock B in Zurich airport. Thousands of visitors could retreat already from the new exhibition in the spell. People such as TikTok would likely agree. In a downright heavenly input staging fascinated already on the way to the terrace: A lamellar installation with pictorial motifs from the aviation lined the access corridor. Built and assembled it has Colt international. “It’s a little like, you were on cloud, if one walks through the 40-metre access corridor to the new spectator terrace at the dock B of Zurich Airport: flies on the left side” one against an airliner of the SWISS. You are hovering over a dense cloud cover. On the right side can you dream up in the endless expanse of the sky.

You have the impression, as you could the wing of the Aircraft touching the beautiful illusion, but as soon as one approaches the picture at arm’s length, burst and you find yourself before a series of about colored aluminium fins. You are the carriers for the two huge images that cut into sheer strips”and have been printed on the individual slats. Colt provided the technology to the design idea the design concept for this atmospheric installation developed the GXM Architekten GmbH from Zurich. Construction management and execution planning brought about the Bosshard architecture and Baumanagement GmbH Zurich. The graphics created the art + com AG from Berlin. The appropriate technology for the realization of this unusual design idea delivered Colt international, worldwide renowned specialist for building design and blade systems. Colt international installed the now acclaimed staging of input to the new visitors terrace in the Zurich airport in the form of a fixed blade system.

The Logistics

For the analysis and the concept of complex logistics tasks FREYLER involves an experienced logistics planners. It is important that the exchange between the designer and the creator of the building starts at an early stage. Jeffrey Bewkes will not settle for partial explanations. Because of the logistics flow and the structural measures can be not separated and multiple rescheduling caused avoidable costs”Dosch stresses from many years of experience. Necessarily all plans of the new building of the Approvability, so the question, are subject to how much, how long and how broad the plot must be installed, which conditions to take into account and what exemptions are possibly. The delivery traffic determines additions and departures, the planning of the yard areas, the necessary loading stations and gates. Fire protection measures including the necessary escape routes are also essential, otherwise a fire wall prevents the request path of the goods with expensive fire protection gates or in the construction costs, a sprinkler system must be be expected. Depending on the production, hygiene requirements can play a role also in the logistics building.

Especially in high-bay warehouses are to take into account the sometimes enormous loads on the floor, not to mention the accommodation of personnel and facilities. , Dosch insured from these examples, we focus our sustainable advice “always on the future development. Because large investments must be future-oriented and to withstand foreseeable developments, either through the possible conversion of individual areas or trouble-free expansion.” All details in the design and completion of logistics buildings for the middle class can not be represented here. When was it clear that the experience of the construction partner with the special requirements of logistics is essential, either with logistics planners to develop everything from a single source or in good cooperation, then can avoid builders serious errors and unnecessary costs. Because a good logistics stops the daily loss of money relating to the actual manufacturing of excellent products. A quick overview of the FREYLER group get on.
