Since 1999, GERB spring elements have been ensuring an enjoyable cinema experience without disturbing noises from the outside. With a weight of 5,000 tons, a diameter of around 44 m and a height of more than 25 m, the BFI IMAX® building in London makes its presence felt. More than two decades after first opening to the public, the cinema still has the largest screen in Great Britain, at 20 x 26 metres. The building was designed by architect Bryan Averyand has received a number of awards.   Located within a busy roundabout between Waterloo Station and Waterloo…

To make the acoustic performance an extraordinary experience again, GERB designed and integrated a Floating Slab Track system for Basel Tram. When the music hall was realized in 1876, the walls were built directly on the foundations of the historic city wall and the vault of the Birsig (river). The city wall itself is rigidly connected to the Birsig vault. Over the years, the components have been firmly connected to the tram via pipelines, cable tunnels and a pedestrian underpass, resulting in numerous structure-borne noise bridges. Vibrations from passing trams are transmitted to the music hall and radiated…

In 2017 Hamburg received a new landmark. The Elbphilharmonie is located south of the Speicherstadt, thehistoric warehouse district in the Port of Hamburg, Germany. TheElbphilharmonie was built on an existing structure of a brick quay warehouse and claims to be a „cultural monument for everyone“. The building consists of different areas, concert halls and public areas as well as hotel and residential uses. Herausforderung The Great Concert Hall, the heart of the Elbphilharmonie, offers a soundscape that inspires. The sound architecture comes from the world-renowned acoustic designer Yasuhisa Toyota. Classical music has to sound perfect – not only…

Elastic support of JPL power plant turbine in Seoni, India. The site is located near village Barela -Gorakhpur, Tehsil Ghansore of Seoni District. JPL currently has 600 MW thermal capacity fully operational and 660 MW under implementation. The plant is generating power on commercial basis. With a total mass of about 28,750 tons, the turbine house of this power station is approx. 95 m long, 46 m wide and 39-m high. In 2010, GERB was consulted by the operator of the power plant directly and asked for a vibration control solution. We started supporting the owner as well…

GERB at ENLIT in Frankfurt, Germany | 29.11. – 01.12.2022 | EXPO Frankfurt Resource:https://www.enlit-europe.com/ Small modular reactor developments and the new generation of nuclear power plants require smart solutions in regard to the seismic protection of corresponding structures and equipment. To combine the different parts of the plant in a close vicinity also active and passive vibration isolation systems may become necessary. Settlement of the structure, parts of the structure, or even equipment is always a challenge for the civil engineers.  GERB provides a solution for all of these topics. Elastic support systems satisfy these tasks depending on site,…

Building isolation system retrofitted to existing steel columns. The architect Daniel Isern, from Isern Associats, with the collaboration of NOLAC Enginyers (Structural Design and Calculation Consultants), AV Enginyers (acoustic consultants) and Albert Bordera (Executive Director of the work) were commissioned to convert the old building of the Catalan Land Institute into a five-star Hotel of the OHLA Boutique Hotels chain, with all its amenities and comfort. Challenge The problem posed by this old office building, for its conversion into a high standing hotel, is that underneath railroad tunnel created vibration immission levels inside, which made it unfeasible for…

Upgrade of Elastomeric Bearings to GERB Spring Elements Residential buildings are way more sensitive in case of vibrations because of the individual lifestyle and sentiments of each resident. Whereas a certain level of vibration stress is normal in an industrial environment, this does not apply to residential buildings, where people‘s quality of life is severely affected. Disturbing excitations need to be isolated to protect the living environment. In this case, the vibrations originate from the operation of heat pumps on the roof of a residential building. The initial solution to isolate the vibrations was not successful and made…

One of the world‘s longest driverless rapid transit lines with GERB spring elements in Singapore From Woodlands north to Sungei Bedok, Thomson-East CoastLine (TEL) will serve 32 stations in over 43 kilometers length. Whencompleted in 2022, TEL will be one of the longest driverless rapidtransit lines in the world. Construction program already started in2014 and was carried out by Land Transport Authority Singaporeand China Railways First Group. When fully opened, it is expected toserve about 500,000 commuters daily in the initial years, rising to one million commuters daily in the long term. A GERB Floating Slab Track system…

GERB‘s first building project on spring elements in India is currently being implemented in Mumbai City,Maharashtra. In 2018 Shrem got in touch with GERB by introducing their architect and consultant new designed Fairmont hotel. As Shrem is a developer in hospitality real estate and infrastructure, the requirements in this project focus on high customer comfort and safety standards. Due to increased threats from vibrations in the metropolitan area, the structure demanded a GERB vibration isolation solution. With our mission to increase comfort and protect against vibrations, structure-borne noise and earthquake, the client could rely on our full support….

Protecting teaching experimental equipment from vibration and structure-borne noise The extension of Beijing University was completed at the end of August 2021 with a new teaching and office building providing more space for students and staff. GERB has already supported the project in 2018 with engineering and delivering an elastic support solution to protect members and structures from unwanted vibrations. Challenge A subway line running underground threatened the new structure with negative effects of vibration that could cause affect the normal use of the teaching equipment as well as a significant reduction of comfort for people in the…
