Industrial storage domes, barrel vaults and space frames are a cost efficient way to address space.
Vaults and Space Frames
Geometrica specializes in roof structures for industry. Manufacturing, logistics, waste management, power plants are some of the uses of efficient space frame structures.
Efficient space frames or vaults provide design flexibility. Plant layouts are no longer constrained to a grid, and production flow can be easily changed and equipment updated when necessary. The end of a vault may be closed with a vertical wall or a semi-dome.
Long Span Domes
Since antiquity architects and engineers have strived to build with longer spanning roofs that are efficient and esthetically pleasing. Today, Geometrica's technology offers design professionals unprecedented functionality in new industrial facilities. Geometrica has built structures that span over 150m and more than 300m spans are now feasible and economical.
Industrial domes are ideal in hot climates. In a dome, warm air rises creating its own insulation layer. Natural ventilation is obtained by the chimney effect, and the cooler air at floor level results in a comfortable work area and saves on cooling costs.
Operators of plants, factories and warehouses turn to Geometrica for their roof structures.
"Spare the environment." This call to action is heard round the world and challenges industries to tread softly around Mother Nature. But sometimes compliance is more easily said than done. "Green" initiatives may seem cost prohibitive or difficult to implement. Logistics, terrain and weather may provide obstacles.
Indeed, traditional building methods are often not practical or cost effective, especially when it comes to remote and rugged regions. Torturous mountain slopes or corrosive salt water environments require more than conventional building systems. They demand all-terrain solutions.
The answer lies in the Geometrica system, which produces lightweight and incredibly strong domes and barrel vaults. Our Freedomes® protect and enhance landscapes and neighboring communities regardless of togography or climate. These applications withstand the harshest environmental conditions, from typhoon-force winds to brutal snow loads. Our hallmarks include decades of experience, a proven building system, quality design, and an industrial portfolio showcasing iconic buildings in 30 countries.
