The “crown” of Torre Titania, occupied by the audit, consulting and professional services EY group, will be transformed in a few months in the room of communication and marketing events with the best views of all Madrid.
The project, designed by the project department of El Corte Inglés, has been adviced by the technical department of GUBIA Group. The polyhedrical shape of this space will be covering in a conical one with strips of bamboo GUBIA BSP 38CV, 60x38mm, placed with a minimal separation between them. 84 wooden trusses classified by levels in different radii and curvatures will be the base of this coating. The first of them has already been tested in our laboratory.
GUBIA´s bamboo does not need protection for the class 2, according to standards EN 355.1 and EN 355.2 _interior with occasional humidity higher than 20% _. It will be treated with a colorless saturator contrasting to the black lacquer of the polyhedrical covering of the staircase area.
This historic sport complex, inaugurated in 1959 and intimately linked to the construction of the city’s airport, has decided to modernize its facilities guided by the new board of directors.
The architect Javier Quiralte, has chosen a noble material such as bamboo in the new changing rooms and the access to them. Both areas will have doors flush with bamboo wall panelling, specifically the model GUBIA o2 flush floor door system ©.
The solid doors with heights of 2600 mm and 50 mm thickness, have a lightened fiber core and bamboo in the perimeter showing the particular edge of this material.
After the fabrication in our carpentry, we need three days to install all the material on site
