As part of the Kuwait University's Student Activities and Athletic Facilities Project (SAAF) in Al-Shadadiya, an indoor tennis centre is currently being realised. The training centre will provide athletes and students with an area of 7,100 square metres in order to carry out their daily training activities. In addition, the building also has three floors and space for around 2,000 spectators. Externally, the sports venue impresses with its dome-shaped roof in the style of traditional Islamic architecture. PERI planned and delivered a project-specific solution for facilitating the efficient execution of the architecturally sophisticated dome-shaped building.The facade of the 25 m high tennis centre was constructed using 8 concreting heights. For the later refinement of the thin reinforced concrete slab with Trencadis mosaics made of limestone, triangular recesses were taken into consideration for the construction. The recesses have been positioned at different heights of up to 11 m and have up to 120 circular openings with respective diameters of 20 cm. These form a fine net that allows the natural sunlight to pass through the subsequently integrated glass blocks into the interior of the tennis centre. As a result, the sports venue with its diameter of over 80 m will be illuminated in a unique way.
Accurate construction of complex geometries thanks to the customised 3D special formwork elements based on the VARIO GT 24 Girder Wall Formwork.
