Construction Quality Characteristics

The building was constructed in accordance with the very strict specifications of the architectural plan and all relevant inspections were carried out by the accredited body that approved the high quality construction. The main building materials used are white marble of an excellent quality, stainless aluminum and oak wood. The floors are made of linoleum, a natural material ideal for places that gather lots of people. For the polygonal facade of the building, we used Meranti wood, a high quality tropical wood that is resistant to Mediterranean climates.

Low maintenance costs
As the building often attracts big crowds, it was considered essential to use building materials that are durable, resistant to adverse weather conditions and resilient to everyday use. Marble, stainless steel, linoleum flooring and Meranti wood are durable, long lasting building materials that reduce maintenance costs of such an important public building.
High acoustic & sound insulation standards
Special attention was given to achieving flawless acoustics. For that reason, the study includes plasterboards with suitable incline for sound reflection and special sound absorption panels. The whole building and especially the auditorium are completely soundproofed.
The building incorporates all accessibility practices from fully accessible entrances to lifts and toilets that allow easy wheelchair access.
