Project summary provided by submitting company.
WestRock is a multinational company, manufacturer of paper and packaging solutions, being the unit of Porto Feliz – São Paulo - Brazil, one of the biggest corrugated factories in the world. The tilt-up system with the metallic structure proved to be advantageous to meet the large dimensions of the equipment and internal logistics, the factory has a modulation that ranges from 25.00 x 20.00m to 25.00 x 40.25m. For the warehouse of paper reels, panels were used with up to 3 panels overlapping with a spandrel of more than 15.00m of large, taking into account the need for fire insulation and allowing doors with large spans to pass through the products. The panels were also used to support pipes and installations, optimizing additional structures such as pipe-rack. Externally the finish is with textured paint, but internally the apparent concrete panel has satisfied aesthetically, without needing any painting.
