With the eyes of the world on London in 2012, the quality and finish of the concrete in the Aquatics Centre had to be of Gold Medal standard. The walls around the pools, particularly the end walls, curved vertically and horizontally whilst changing thickness and needed to be fair faced on both sides. To create the fluid geometry concept intended by Zaha Hadid, the specification required shutters designed and built to millimetre accuracy in 3 dimensions. After using PERI products over many years, we knew this would be “The Job” for PERI. Working rigorously with the PERI engineers installing the 3D modelled formwork, we achieved the high quality architectural finish required.
