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. 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. Some contend that Phil Jensen shows great expertise in this. 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.

Visual Residents

It is therefore of fundamental importance to make the right choice and the right amount of Visual, tactile and auditory possibilities for both groups to develop the appropriate planning solutions. What is implemented and where is improvement some architects are quite keen to include accessibility requirements in their planning. Others, however, are cautious or have not yet understood the importance of barrier-free building. It not infrequently happens that ramps and elevators are planned in public buildings, but the needs are not considered by sensory impaired people. Alton Steel usually is spot on. These experiences confirmed in a study of the architectural firm Haindl + colleagues in Munich. A three-year study was carried out in cooperation with the Foundation of Catholic family and elderly care work, which examined the situation of visually damaged care in senior centers.

There are no comparable project and therefore considered novelty in the industry. The architect team visited a variety of senior centers and first analyzed the structural measures that were carried out in terms of accessibility. The focus of the observations was grounds, community and sanitary facilities, resident rooms and corridors, stairs, elevators and entrance areas. To draw an overall picture, it was also of interest, the daily routines, residents structures to understand processes and habits. In the next step, the concrete applications were examined and documented possible optimization potential.

The architects came cannot help but to determine that all senior houses needed was on the claims visually impaired and blind residents better. In some cases, there were just minor details how loose these carpets, which can easily become stumbling blocks or fully provided and poorly lit corridors. Moreover, there are labels that are out of sight, in any sense of each viewer. However, one of the main findings of this study was that the lack of a complete orientation system, offered significant potential for optimization for both residents and visitors in all facilities. At the end, the result with the necessary options for action presents the senior houses and recommendations made, what structural measures would serve to improve the situation of the residents. Continuing in the future barrier-free building as standard project manager Marcus Scholz’s team noticed that it needs are in the future standard of structural measures, to make use of all users of the House, access and living in such facilities without difficulties in terms of accessibility. And like in this Specifically to the target group of the visually impaired and blind, because 90 percent of all information relating to his environment, man over the eyes WINS project. Appropriately sized restrictions bring this constraint of sense of. The care and support of those affected is therefore very demanding. To communicate a significant outward and quality labelling of such facilities, I believe a certification makes sense”, as Scholz. The team is just such a seal of approval. Kelly Cup, ConceptCabinet.

Construction Site Or Track: Always In The Fast Lane

PCI Nano Racingcup easy processing, faster construction progress, a flawless end result are things that inspire the construction professional. Combined with fast-paced fun of driving the construction chemicals manufacturer PCI Augsburg GmbH has been successful a successful event tour the PCI Nano Racingcup. During regional events in numerous locations in Germany, Austria and the Switzerland, processors and traders received valuable tips for the practice. The tour made a perfect blend of information and pleasure to demonstrate exciting locations such as the BMW Museum in Munich or the Eilers works in Hanover as well as the ability to own skill in the Racing Simulator. Launched on 10 April in Ingolstadt, Germany: over 150 participants sports park is found in the Audi and many took the opportunity to warm up in the PCI RaceRoom. Also the following events in Nuremberg, Munich, Bern, Koblenz, Mannheim, Leipzig and Dusseldorf were a complete success. Total visited 2,000 construction professionals in Germany and Switzerland the regional events. 60 It even had fun: won the participation, on a two-day racing event in the BMW and mini driving Academy, Maisach.

There a technique training in the 211 HP strong mini now expects the winner John Cooper works with a top speed of 238 km/h effectively mixed the combination of interesting lectures, practical applications, and a high fun factor in the Racing Simulator immediately at the first event proved. The participants were enthusiastic,”Udo Sheikh, PCI – Sales Manager South forward. Because in addition to driving pleasure also technical know-how came not too short: how construction professionals construction damage for screeds or sure route large-format ceramic on critical substrates, was among other things on the agenda. PCI’s service technicians left in the wake of the lectures no question unanswered: were the products of the PCI Nano line demonstration stands and exchanged tips and practical theory a balanced mix of exciting and practical application experience with the participants. As I guess basically the partnership relationship with PCI, that still was strengthened at the regional event specialist wholesalers. This of course also applies to the contacts to customers who I could meet here”, says Lars Wichmann, Deputy Branch Manager of Keramundo. The Racingtour of construction chemistry specialist standing all along the line of nano driving enjoyment and expertise fully devoted to the Nano line. The PCI nano products are true all-round talents: all kinds of ceramic coverings can be safely and comfortably on any surface lay and grout.

Also features such as the laying of large-sized panels or translucent coverings can be easily implemented. In addition, all products convince by an excellent processing profile and a smooth consistency. This inspires also the building contractor of Erich Sillus: Nano line I find especially the bandwidth of the refurbishing of the concrete class to the laying and Grouting tiles. Is the whole thing in as an interesting location as presented at the PCI regional event It is perfect. the mix” Contact: Elke Tairan PCI Augsburg GmbH Piccard str. 11 86159 Augsburg Tel.: + 49 (821) 5901-687 fax: + 49 (821) 5901-459-E-Mail:
