In Duisburg, the general contractor Goldbeck has handed over one of the most modern school complexes in Germany to the city following a construction period of only 17 months - a vocational college for 2,600 students. ETFE Cushions was an imperative part of the project.
At its official inauguration, the incumbent mayor praised both the state-of-the-art facilities and, above-all its architectural brilliance. The ETFE cushion roofed foyer area between the two main buildings was viewed as a special highlight. The atmosphere here is bathed in light and friendly – above all thanks to the transparent ETFE cushion roof construction.
Nowadays ETFE cushions are used to connect two Buildings or to create a large roof, so that the natural light can be used.
