Suite Vollard
Concept The concept of this proposal is to spin a metallic platform rolling over a rigid concrete structure. To get the best visual appeal the glass walls rotate together with the platform being visible from outside. The roof can rotate together with the structure depending on the project demands. Each apartment can rotate individually in both directions with its own control and timing. The time for one complete turn is according to the needs of the customer. The Suite Vollard completes a turn in one hour. All mobile parts are under the floor with easy access for inspection and maintenance. Safety is an absolute priority. The concept shown in this presentation is about a generic project based in an already validated concept and can be adjusted and further developed to meet the customer’s necessities. Mechanics Advantages: Simplicity Only concept already built and tested Low energy consumption Low cost compared to similar equipments Low weight Low maintenance Compact. Demands low space allowing more floors for the same buiding high Functioning Quietness: The system is free of noise and vibration Flexibility Each floor can rotate independently for both directions at owner’s will. The speed of rotation is variable up to a maximum considered as comfortable The motion can be perceived from both inner and out sides. Smoothness The starts and stops are quite smooth Testing and Validation The concept has been severely tested. Two year of intensive tests simulating overloads, starts and stops and long period of continuous functioning. An accelerating endurance test have simulated 10 years of intensive use with no need of components repairs. The components are quality assured by the suppliers which are recognized international companies with high quality standards. Maintenance The system is highly reliable due its robustness and high quality components Components designed to high durability, most of them for more than 30 years Most of the components are available “from the shelf
