Our company and engineers who were involved with the accurate selection and supply for VIBRO vibration isolators are pleased to present one of the most important projects worldwide that VIBRO vibration control products have been used.

General project information:
Project: Stavros Niarhos Foundation Cultural Center (New National Opera and National Library of Greece)
Location: Faliro Athens Greece
Architect: Renzo Pianno Building Workshop
Acoustic Design: Arup Acoustics New York
Contractor: Consortium Salini Impregilo - TERNA SA
Project Awards: Leed Platinum (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)

The project site is located 4.5 km south of the center of Athens, in Faliro area , and a multifunctional space focusing in aspects like education, culture and entertainment. The total project budget was € 630 million.
The SNFCC is the first public-private partnership of its kind in Greece and one of the most important cultural and educational projects ever implemented in the country. As one of the largest construction projects in the recent history of the island, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center will directly benefit the Greek economy, creating jobs and increasing capital inflows, in a difficult economic environment.

Our company ALPHA ACOUSTIKI supplied all the Anti-vibration mounts and Suspension of electro-mechanical equipment in the center. The specific requirements and specifications of the project were a challenge as the specifications of the building were high not just for the local level of construction but for overall global standards.

Also in the building component and the reduction of vibration, anti-vibration gaskets used for the construction of floating floors, floating / anti-vibration wall and the vibration isolation in suspension for soundproofing of ceilings.

The project had very high acoustic specifications which VIBRO anti-vibration products complied with not only in acoustics but also in ergonomic and mechanical level.

Our company's engineering team in collaboration with the responsible engineers of the project made the appropriate selection of anti-vibration gaskets, to meet all the project requirements.

The project delivery times were specific and tight, which is something that constitutes our basic comparative advantage as the fast production and delivery minimizes the time required to deliver to site.

Our company, faithful to the vision to provide better services in choosing the solution that covers technical and commercial needs of each project, is at your disposal to evaluate the option that suits your requirements. From a small studio that requires use of floating floor up to rooms very high standard as the Opera in Athens. The new building of the National Opera -one of the most modern globally- combines high aesthetics, leading acoustics, modern technological capabilities and the flexibility to switch between sets, with an equally high aesthetic artistic repertoire, improving the overall experience of the Opera.
