Green building technologies of BASF concern are used at erection of the most difficult Olympic and infrastructural objects worldwide. They are especially claimed at preparation for the Games-2014 in Sochi, the project manager ZAO «BASF» Larissa Guro notes.

 — In building of what Olympic objects BASF took part? What was the uniqueness of technologies used?

— Concern BASF took part in building of such token objects, like the Olympic stadium «Bird's nest» in Beijing, the «Khalifa Tower» in Dubai, Gotthard tunnel in Switzerland. The «Bird's nest», getting its name for the unique weaved steel design and seating 91 thousand spectators, became a symbol of summer Olympic Games-2008. At its building it was used BASF concrete with special additives, that allowed to speed up the rates of building in accordance with the highest quality standarts. Similar BASF compositions were used at the construction of the Aquatic Sports Center in the Chinese capital. Foam material Basotect® was used for making of interior facing at the construction of swimming pool in the Center. Such choice allowed to mount fire-resistant and safe in the ecological relation sound isolation.

BASF technologies also helped to construct the highest building in the world — the «Khalifa Tower» in Dubai.

BASF materials are successfully used at building of the combined road Adler — mountainous resort Alpika-service, the doubler of the Kurortny avenue, and for intracity automobile interchanges, bridges, platforms and tunnels.

PCI® and Mastertop® materials are actively used in finishing of hotel complexes and in sport constructions…
