Felices fiestas patrias! On September 18, Chile celebrates its "primera junta nacional". In celebration of all things Chilean, we feature a few projects that we have built in that beautiful country.
Geometrica’s Freedome® at Bocamina Ⅱ is one of our most challenging and successful projects covering nearly 23,000m2 without any interior columns. Here’s a short video with a bird’s-eye view.
Regardless of geography or climate, Geometrica solves dust problems with endless design options. We believe that industry can be dust-defiant, tread more softly around Mother Nature, and be a good corporate citizen — without breaking the budget — sustainably.
Geometrica’s Freedome® takes on dream-like shapes, but designing a column-free dome to cover an irregular area is just the beginning. When finished, some of our domes have more than 100,000 individual pieces - all different from each other. How do we keep costs low and installation fast? Ever painted-by-numbers?
Francisco Castaño, CEO of Geometrica, will deliver a speech at the upcoming Bravo MX: Innovation Rockstars event at the Plaza Condesa in Mexico City on July 7. For the second consecutive year, Castaño will be recognized as one of Mexico’s most successful entrepreneurs. Produced by Entrepreneur magazine, the event mixes business and inspiration with the high energy of rock.
If mines, ports, power and cement plants around the world have one thing in common, it's the need to have enormous stockpiles of dry bulk material. And, managing these stockpiles for greater sustainability, efficiency, safety and protection is an increasing challenge. We have the solution.
Yoga is often inspiring. It strengthens a body even while achieving slenderness. It helps control the bulk and achieve inner peace. Oh, so much like a dome. Structural engineers and yogis both strive for balance and stability, as our writer describes this month. Please read on to environmental Nirvana.
It is a lovely port city. As Mexico's traditional and colorful gateway, Veracruz welcomes trade and tourists with friendship and warmth. But it is not as welcoming to metal buildings.
