National Space Centre, Astana
Kazakh cosmonauts meet facade construction team from Braunschweig
The National Space Centre under construction in Almaty, Kazakhstan was designed by the Kazakhstan architect Vladimir Pozdnyakov. It was a challenging project for GIP Fassade. The three-dimensional architecture of the building envelope of the National Space Centre in Kazakhstan required a special substructure, which could be installed quickly and would meet all the requirements of the building.
The 2,500 m² ventilated curtain wall was the first international project to be installed using the VECO-E substructure system with no thermal bridges. The facade was made from extremely lightweight TONALITY tile panels. The impressive appearance of the building envelope and successful use of a new construction technique are good omens for the acquisition of further projects in the global market.
