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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
Critical infrastructure, such as hospitals must be protected against earthquakes Slobozia, Romania – 120 km east of Bucharest is the capital of Ialomiţa County. A region that is regularly hit by small to moderate earthquakes. In 2020 alone, the Ialomiţa was affected by 9 earthquakes. Back in 2007, it was clear the hospital, which is providing health care for more than 250,000 people, needed a seismic protection upgrade. Challenge The project challenged on two levels. First, the structure
Providing elasticity at stiffness transition zones between concrete bridge and approach slab Within a comprehensive infrastructure development program, a railway company expanded their single railway network to a double track. The trains run on single, non-electrified tracks with a gauge of 1,000 mm and connects destinations with an expansive rail network of 4,000 km. With the objective to implement a maintenance-free and sustainable upgrade, GERB provided an elasticity solution that reduced all deleterious effects at the transition between
GERB was approached by a petrochemical company from the middle east region to help mitigate vibration problems from one of their amine plants In total 4 units needed to be solved as vibration level exceeded allowable limits (see Figure 1). The customers internal process study revealed that there is slug flow in the piping which induces internal forces which cannot be eliminated. Considering the limitations like large bore (36”) piping, long vertical runs and the fact that most
