Lindab Buildings has broken the European record, realising for the client BULK Cargo, two 90m clear span buildings with common column in Castellόn (Spain), an area well-known for its pottery industry. Even if the Lindab technology can make clear span buildings up to 100m, this is the first time in Europe that such a construction has been achieved.
The building is designated for the storage of clay and enables vehicles to load easily. It takes up the challenge of combining aesthetics with the adaptation to local standards and to the local site requirements. The aesthetical aspect is due to a double slope roof (15% the first 22.5m and 10 % for the rest of it).
With such dimensions, this construction represents a key building of the Castellόn port, even more impressive than the lighthouse!
