From drilling machines to excavators, crushing and grinding equipment - the mining industry depends upon having all the right tools. Each type of mining activity comes with its own set of tools. Perhaps the most visible activities, and certainly among the most controversial, are ore crushing and stockpiling. The tools for these activities are conveyors, crushers, and, crucially (pun aside), domes. Domes improve a mine's environmental compliance - and its local image.
Geometrica recently achieved the latest ISO 9001:2015 certification for the design, manufacturing and installation of reticular structures and domes. The company previously earned certification under ISO 9001:2008 and has been audited and registered annually by BSI since 2008. We are hugely proud of this achievement and would like to thank the entire team at Geometrica and BSI for their involvement. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Geometrica’s Project #12 in Saltillo, Mexico. From 1993 to 2018. A fun Facebook #ThrowbackThursday post and short video interview with the project’s architect. Shoutout to Escala, Yamal Chamoun and Manuel Sanchez.
Pedestrian bridges are going to cool new heights, turning the need to get from here to there into an adventure for Geometrica. This latest generation of newly constructed or retrofitted pedestrian bridges — where cars are strictly off-limits — takes a number of forms. The most successful fall somewhere between spectacle and conduit because they blaze a path where no one felt the need for one before. The opportunity to design and manufacture pedestrian bridges was compelling and quite a departure from the mega domes that Geometrica typically designs.
To realize elegant and intriguing buildings, not just any construction system will do. Uncommon architecture is possible when constraints associated with conventional building construction are lifted. Geometrica’s structural system provides options that are as endless as your imagination, whether spanning an industrial site or serving as an iconic public landmark.
Here’s an installation video (10s) of the space frame that hangs from the apex of one of the largest domes that we've ever designed. Lifting the 40-ton platform over 30 meters (100 feet) went very smoothly, despite the complexity of the maneuver. Congratulations to the project team!
Are open bulk storage yards a thing of the past? With an increasing need for environmental compliance, uncovered stockpiles need to be enclosed sooner rather than later. It’s no surprise that mines, ports, power and cement plants seek a storage solution that avoids downtime and high cost.
