Project description

Ystad Arena is the sports hall in Sweden characteristic with ambitious architectural solutions. For the project, “Skonto Prefab” delivered 782 m2 sandwich walls with custom-made patterns and white concrete. This was the first project in the history of the company where we delivered such a large amount of sandwich walls with custom-made patterns and white concrete. It was important for the project to have all materials registered in advance in the Swedish Register to have the project comply with the silver level. Materials were registered in BVB (Byggvarubedömningen) system. Main tasks of BVB is determine the chemical composition of materials, test durability of materials, provide high-quality dossier to the client, as well as care for the surrounding environment with friendly materials. In total, the company used premium materials and technologies in Ystad project allowing to successfully complete the project task and deliver construction materials according to schedule and in high quality. Task of the project was solved with the help of high quality Reckli custom-made patterns forming the surface design. In this case, irregular wood patterns were imitated in the white concrete surface. In considering specific requirement of the client in regards to the concrete colour, new concrete formula was developed using the white concrete from Poland and granite chips from United Kingdom. In combination with Latvian sand and Norwegian concrete additives we achieved the shade of the concrete client requested, as well as complied with technical concrete characteristics as to the standard, including the concrete strength class C40/50 with water/concrete ratio <0.4 and compliance with the external effect class XC4/XF.
