Roofs made of ETFE foil for schools & universities

Buitink Technology produced and installed tensioned single layer transparent ETFE membranes and membranes of white pvc coated polyester fabric for the new building of the ROC ID-College in Leiden (The Netherlands).

The project consists of about 500 sqm of transparent ETFE membranes and about 250 sqm of tensioned white membranes.

The transparent ETFE membranes cover the atrium, whilst the white membranes cover the technical equipment on the roof. It's for weather protection and make the equipment invisible for neighbouring buildings.
