Adler Station

Project details:

Clear and spandrel double glazing units with outer and inner fully tempered glasses, outer pane is high performance glass. For Schueco structural façade system.

Project description:

The Adler station will be the main traffic route into the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 and it is the biggest transportation hub in southern Russia. It is the only station in the world that combines all kinds of transport: rail, road, air and sea.

The new building has seven levels with total area of 23,000m2 and capacity for 15,000 people per hour.

The Adler station is situated on the seaside and the building design mimics a wave breaking onto the city. This idea is implemented through the combination of transparent and opaque IGUs with ceramic roller paint. A custom made RAL color was used for the ceramic roller painting onto the glass which helps to blend the building into the surrounding landscape.

A structural glazing system as selected to reduce the effect of the curtain wall framing and to provide visitors with a feeling of light and openness.

Our engineers team made a special calculation with the sealant supplier to determine the necessary sealant depth based on the climatic loads and the fixing system.

A high selective magnetron coating was used for the solar control to provide maximum daylight whilst preventing solar heat gain and ensuring thermal insulation to provide an optimum temperature balance inside the building and to reduce the air conditioning costs.
