The 10 meter high parametric glazed roof named ‘Diamantbeurs’ was realized by Octatube. The challenging roof shape results in challenging accessibility. Octatube Services conducts yearly maintenance to keep this diamond shiny.
A free-form shape with PV integrated glass in the centre of Amsterdam requires skilled maintenance. Bespoke safety rails combined with rope-access, allow for a complete access of the dome. For this project, Octatube Services was involved in an early stage of the design process. Practical knowledge on maintenance could be taken into account and as a result, the cost of maintenance was known to the building owner throughout the process.
