Kingspan Access Floors has overcome one of the biggest logistical challenges it has ever faced to supply 150,000 sq m of RG3 panels to a new bank headquarters in Spain that features undulating floors.
The BBVA headquarters in Madrid comprises four buildings one 23-storey disc-shaped building and four three-storey buildings whose floors undulate. This has meant that Kingspan has had to individually label each of the half a million pedestals to ensure that the right size pedestal is in the right place to provide the correct rise and fall of the floors.
Due to be completed by the summer of 2015, the development also features courtyards, irrigated gardens and other communal facilities for the 6,500 staff who will work there. The main contractors are Acciona.
