Tension membrane for large dolphinariums
This project is a unique combination of a tensed membrane and a
laminated timber construction for the entrance of Dolfinarium
In response to a demand from GMB Infra BV from Opheusden,
Buitink Technology has realized the engineering, production and
installation of a membrane structure covering the entrance, flag
poles as well as the belonging flags.
Unique in the Netherlands
To provide the adequate atmosphere for the Dolphinarium the
architects have chosen this particular combination of timber and
fabric, which is unique in the Netherlands. Usually the tensed
fabrics are combined with steel structures. In this case it was a
big challenge to transfer the tensioning forces from the membrane
to the timber structure.
