Airports/Stations


 

Application

In the design of new, renovated or extended metropolitan airports and railway stations architects and engineers frequently make use of modernistic, pure materials. Steel, glass, natural stone, aluminium and wood are regarded as the proper materials to express the dynamical, modern constructive character of buildings for transport.

 

Challenges

Wide open spaces with natural daylight and a high degree of transparency and openness demand powerful facade and roof constructions that do not interfere with the spaciousness. Facade, roof and hall constructions on the other hand have to add a filigree high tech aspect to the overall design.

 

Products and Solutions

All over the world and for decades MSH sections have proven to be the choice of leading architects for the design of frame structures for facades, loadable supporting structures and filigree roof designs.
