Auditorio de Tenerife

Auditorio de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain - Due to the slender form of the building, the use of concrete for the realization of the structure was inevitable. A wide range of formwork expertise was required in order to complete this concert hall: from the use of the simple TRIO panel formwork for the foundations, climbing formwork for symmetrically-arranged round and curved sail-like walls, through to a very unusual special construction on the basis of the ACS self-climbing technology for the approx. 100 m long self-supporting roof assembly.
Auditorio de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain - All carriage movements are carried out using three independently operated hydraulic circuits: moving forward and retracting, positioning as well as shuttering and striking.

Auditorio de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain - With the design of this spectacular structure, architect Santiago Calatrava has defied the basics of conventional architecture. Three different construction elements, which he described as “wings”, “nut” and “sail”, characterize the 58 m high building. (Photo: R. Mendez)
Auditorio de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain - The Auditorio de Tenerife is used as a concert hall and is an example of the almost unlimited possibilities provided by concrete construction. The formwork technology required for such a structure presented a special challenge which our engineers solved in a rational and safe manner.
