Olympic center Thermis

Salonicco - 1995

The main structural systems of the complex are:
  • The roofing system of the main Sport Hall
  • The roofing system of the Training Hall
  • The mobile flooring
The main structure is formed by a system of steel cables, which subdivides the building in two symmetrical parts, giving an uniform and dynamic style to the whole building.

The two sub-structures are formed by large concrete anchorage blocks and a group of reticular cable beams.

The transversal beams are supported externally by cement structures, while in the inner part they are hanged to the central tension structure by a special pendulum.

The structural system of the roof is formed by a longitudinal pre-tensioned cable frame system; a system of pre-tensioned beams and a system of longitudinal system of sheet roofing.

The roofing system of the Training Hall is formed by a double layer steel structure supported by a cable system.

The floor, made mobile by hydraulic jacks, can assume a double vertical displacement, to meet the different needs of the public of the various disciplines.
