Convention Center - the Fuksas cloud, Rome
The new Rome Convention Center, popularly nicknamed the "cloud" due to its special interior, was designed by the famous architect Massimiliano Fuksas. In fact, the architect from Rome was inspired by cloud formations that he observed while walking along the beach. The impressive fiberglass structure is supported by an impressive steel framework. The entire building has been planned and implemented according to the latest energy saving requirements. All materials used also meet the guidelines for sustainable building and even the heating and air conditioning system is powered exclusively by renewable energies.
For the screed work in a total of 10,000 m², CONTOPP® Accelerator 10 RS was used for the time-sensitive construction sections and for the screed surfaces with greatly increased demands on the strength class were made with CONTOPP® Fibercompound Duremit hydro.
Both products used have the well-known KNOPP hydrophobic technology. Both products - like all Accelerators and Compound products from KNOPP - are equipped with the unique KNOPP tracers that enable the direct detection of the admixture and its dosage in the screed by using a UV lamp and without time-consuming sampling!
The new congress center has an auditorium for 1,800 people, conference and congress rooms for a further 6,000 people, various restaurants, a 5-star hotel with 400 rooms as well as an underground car park. The location for the new congress was carefully chosen and is close to both Fiumicino Airport and the new exhibition center. The construction costs amounted to more than 230 million euros.
