Simplicity has a complex soul
Menon understands the special properties of steel well and how steel can be adapted and moulded to meet the most diverse construction requirements.
This structure has created a place of work fitted out with trackways for an overhead crane within a covered space measuring 2,800 m2. The essential load-bearing lines in hot-galvanized steel carry 3,200 m2 of sandwich panels based on a horizontal fascia of thermal-break reinforced concrete panels. The casements in polycarbonate are arranged in a continuous band.
The visual impact of this construction is clean and spare, but its operational robustness is there to be discerned, while structural complexity is hidden by the external facings.
