Architen are thrilled to have been appointed by Victor Buyck to design and manufacture an ETFE cushion tunnel as part of the expansion of the Kelana Jaya Line of Malaysia’s LRT (light rapid transit).
The tunnel is located in Klang Valley and will consist of almost 600 individual inflated ETFE cushions totalling 3,400sqm.
As we all wind down for the Christmas period, some of our customers have made the most of their tensile fabric structure by decorating it for the festive period and we’re thoroughly impressed! Thank you for all your support in 2014, it’s been a great year!
Merry Christmas from the team at Architen Landrell
Architen Landrell is thrilled to be the first in the industry to introduce a pioneering new form of ETFE technology which reduces heat under ETFE roof systems by absorbing Infrared Radiation (IR).
Until today, we managed solar glare and solar gain under our ETFE roof systems using fritting.
We are pleased that last week we were recognized with the 2014 International Achievement Award (IAA) for design excellence in specialty fabrics applications.
Architen received an Award of Excellence for the Serpentine Sackler Gallery project. The project was recognized in the competition’s Tensile Structures Under 600m2 category.
In the early days, tensile fabric structures offered barrier to weather, but no insulation. Times have changed. Today’s tensile fabric roof systems are designed to perform as well as traditional roofing materials, with many added benefits.
Ever wondered how we install big fabric canopies? Check out this cool 80 second mini film as we bring shade to Rowley Mile Racecourse.
Architen Landrell staff have been baking their hearts out this week getting ready for Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.
Today is the day and now we are enjoying delicious cookies, cakes and muffins, while raising money for a great cause.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s largest fundraising event of the year.
In a week, the Opening Ceremonies for the 17th Asian Games will take place in Incheon, Korea.
Architen is proud to have designed, engineered, manufactured and installed the three layer ETFE inflated roof over the beautiful new Munhak Aquatics Venue. In total, 49 cushions make up the complex roof offering 3,000m2 of coverage.
There is a lot of activity this week and next at Newmarket Racecourse in Suffolk. Architen is on site installing the steel framework for a bespoke series of interconnected Conic fabric structures.
Next week two cranes arrive on site to lift the enormous fabric canopy into place so that we can start the tensioning process.
