About the project
For the Emeq Center shopping mall project, Palgag was involved from the stage of preliminary design. It was responsible for carrying out the detailing, shop drawings and fabrication of over 18,000 square meters of roofing and cladding systems, including steel structures and canopies.
Most of the pitched and arched metal roofing systems included metal decking, insulation, pre-painted aluminium Riverclack covering sheets and “bullnose” finishing details.
For most of the cladding, the chosen solution was pre-painted aluminium panels in a copper patina shade.
The canopies consisted of an architectural steel structure and aluminium perforated corrugated sheets as an underside lining.
