Serbia - In September, LITEC delivered its Alusfera 2.0 roof structure to the Novi Sad 2021 Foundation for use in a classical concert staged in the Novi Sad town square in Serbia. The Alusfera structure was specifically selected not only for its shape and impressive loading characteristics, but also to assist in the creation of an outdoor “opera house effect”.
The company who delivered the Alusfera structure to the Novi Sad Foundation for this event was AVL Projekt, a leading distributor in Serbia. Projekt design, engineer and install tailor-made solutions for their clients and ensure their efficient operation with on-site training. The also provide acoustic calculations and light & audio designs.
“The service we received from LITEC for this event was greatly appreciated. LITEC’s sales representative, Jan Cernota, worked with us during the selling process and assisted in the successful conclusion of the contract. LITEC design engineer Andrea Santello also provided full technical support. All stages of the project went smoothly,” says Aleksandar Kruscic, project manager for AVL Projekt.
For this year’s event in Novi Sad, the impressive Alusfera 2.0 roof measured 21.5m wide, 10.3m high and 11.5m deep. It featured front and rear arches, and a new ridge that allows for the secure connection of the main arches to the ground. Although it is rated for a uniformly distributed load of 6,5000kg, only 6,000kg of support was required for this event. The roof was covered with a white PVC canopy for protection against rain and wind, with the inside of the canopy painted in various colours to assist in creating exceptional lighting effects.
“The tender included a firm deadline for completion of this project, so timely delivery of the Alusfera roof was extremely important to us. LITEC promised to meet the deadline we had specified and kept their promise,” comments Kruscic. “And the short amount of time needed to construct the Alusfera roof on location was amazing. It saved the client money for labour and helped us meet tight deadlines that always seem to accompany the production of live events.”
Ultimately, the concert was a big success for the Novi Sad 2021 Foundation, with attendees appreciating the classical music, as well as the structure where it was held. AVL Projekt was also able to log another impressive live event as part of their growing list of references.
