Paykar Bonyan Panel FactoryEdit profile
The project: is a factory that contains a prefabricated building system production plant plus an office & ancillary building. Site: The site location is an industrial city for non-pollution factories , 35 kilometer off Tehran/ Iran. The Client Goal: is to change the traditional construction system to an industrial building system which can fulfill the enormous demand of construction in Iran. The client , therefore, wanted the factory to be indicative of this goal in terms of architectural quality in industrial building system with no resemblance to traditional factories in Iran. Due to a tight construction schedule we had to have EPC contract for the project ( fast track design/build contract) The program is a 3700 sqm production plant with a 350 sqm mezzanine for settlement of technical management team and 500 sqm for technical office and showrooms and mechanical room that must be close to and with a good access to the production plant. There is also a 500 sqm management building with a VIP suit and receptions that is connected to the main bldg with a bridge. The ancillary building with 200 sqm area is in a separate building in the site. Building Morphology: These type of buildings always possess some characteristics such as large span, modular structure and homogeneous space. Architectural Concept: Architect's approach towards designing a distinctive building is to bear in mind the above-mentioned characteristics. As regards this project, not only the characteristic aspects have been regarded but also we have been able to get the maximum use of a kind of architecture which provides for all quantitative and qualitative architectural demands. Geometry of space: ( The geometry can make us either murderers or lovers) The emphasis was to apply a simple geometry of space to be able to meet all the prospects foreseen in the project such as the program and the required connectivity and moreover be able to create a new atmosphere which makes turn a globe either in section or in plan as well as the project façade ( interior and exterior) into a homogeneous object. The building is located North-South lengthwise and the main administration building which overlooks Alborz mountain has a uniform glass view. The production site whose windows due to triangular shapes are placed under the ceiling and towards North, enjoy an integrated indirect light which illuminates the whole area of the production site. All the used material in the building have been available in the vicinity of the site up to 50 km and have been manufactured in accordance with the existing technology in the country. The area where the building is located requires heating system rather than cooling . The project location in the site as well as its lengthways building in North-South direction plus designing of various openings in east-west part cause natural air ventilation to blow inside the building due to local winds. This result in energy saving.
