BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 5 - Francois Chauvet and his team exhibit their know-how through the creation of an oval relaxation room with a surface area of 200m². The study and completion of the project were carried out according to the architect‘s simple drawing. The metallic structure, weighing 4 tonnes, was looked into and created in coordination with the metal- working company. The objective was to fix the double plaster board shell with a total weight of 11 tonnes.
BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 6 - Initially, the plasterer created a series of matrices in the workshop. These templates which will be used as moulds were created on a reproduction at a scale of 1:1 of the different curves of the metallic structure. These templates enabled the 96 elements required for decorating the spherical room to be moulded. Each plaster board measures about 2.90m by 1.20m and weighs 120 kilos. The plaster used was hard Lutèce ® Molda.
BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 7 - Presentation of the installation of the plaster boards forming the outside wall. The boards are fixed in position using wads, a mix of binders and Lutèce ® Molda plaster. Each wad has maximum loading of 1,200kg.
BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 8 - The shell’s internal boards are positioned in decreasing order. The internal curve is comprised of 3 radius in the vertical part and 4 in the horizontal part. Rock wool was put in place between the two walls, so as to ensure the room was perfectly soundproofed.
BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 9 - As the works progressed, 200 fibre optic light points were installed.
BPB TROPHY 2006 – PLASTER - 10 - In the centre of the room, the company created a perforated plaster board ceiling, enabling indirect lighting to be ensured, as well as additional acoustical correction. A tailor-made access hatch was built into the ceiling to enable access to the light and smoke ejection shaft.
