Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park in Zurich Zoo
The Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park in Zurich Zoo is innovative in design and also in the way in which the elephants are looked after. The zoo’s growing elephant family now has more than six times as much room as they did before, including a number of different pools and showers both indoors and outside, which they make active use of.
Asian elephants are good swimmers, as they frequently cross stretches of water in the wild and often bathe in order to regulate their body temperature and look after their skin. Visitors can now also see the elephants when they are swimming from a special underwater viewpoint.
Villa in Welschbillig
Lots of sloping roof surfaces, rounded, almost cone-shaped areas, a striking dormer and a tower with a conical roof – the villa in Welschbillig has a spectacular roof shape.
Renovation lasted 6 weeks: the result was - a new roof sealing protecting the building and corresponding to the state of the art – and a visually significant and individual note.
The combination of slates, copper, thermoplastic roofing membrane and the pattern profile underlines the memorable character of the roof shape. When roofer Georg Bouteau was called to the Villa at Welschbillig to discuss the renovation works for the existing roof, it was soon clear to him: for this extraordinary roof of the mansion a thermoplastic roofing membrane would be best suited.
Kraków Arena designed by the architectural firm Perbo-Projekt is currently the biggest sports and entertainment venue in Poland which was opened in May 2014 in the Czyżyny district. This state-of-the-art, multipurpose facility meets all the most restrictive requirements and international standards concerning organizational and technical aspects. Therefore it can host mass sporting and cultural events, exhibitions, fairs and many more. It comes as no surprise that to build such a world class venue only top-notch systems and products had to be applied.
The construction of such a significant venue demanded onsite technical support on various levels – e.g. suitable systems selection and work quality control. In addition to this, most significantly, the building chemistry provider had to be well experienced and have a history of proven performance as the project requirements of the venue in Krakòw were very restrictive.

The Medellin Sports Coliseum was built to host the ninth edition of the South American games. The Sports Coliseum is part of the Atanasio Girardot Sports Complex and the incredible design of the roof was made to harmonize the visual impact of the building with the valley.
For the waterproofing of the 45.000 m2 of the roof , a product was necessary that could offer the possibility of being produced in different green shades so that they could combine with the colors of the mountains of the valley. A high-performing single-ply waterproofing membrane met all the requirements.

The process of converting the almost thirty-year-old warehouses there into a modern logistics centre involved, among other things, insulating and waterproofing approximately 22,000 square metres of roof area. A case for a high-quality and economical-to-install synthetic single-ply waterproofing system.
