Galeria Północna: Profilpas profiles for the new shopping centre in Warsaw
Galeria Północna (in English North Gallery) is one of the biggest shopping centres of Poland, located in the fastest growing district of Białołeka, in the North of Warsaw. The building construction started on July 2015 and the completion is scheduled for the third quarter of this year. The total area of this three-storey structure will reach more than 202 thousand square meters. The complex has been designed by the architects of the studio APA Wojciechowski and, subsequently, subcontracted to the building company Unibep.
The building of Galeria Północna is eco-friendly and is LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) – a certification obtained by those buildings that are designed, built and managed by paying attention to the environment and the health of people. Moreover, there is a garden on the rooftop of Galeria Północna, this is the reason why the building can be easily called “the green lungs of Białołeka”.
Profilpas profiles used for the shopping centre Galeria Północna
Currently, the finishing process of the whole structure is underway and the building company has chosen only Profilpas profiles! Different kinds of profiles have been used for the finishing of floors and coverings, for example the profiles for floors of same height Proangle ZA/ in silver anodised aluminium and Prostyle UIS/ in satin stainless steel AISI 304 DIN 1.4301, both are perfect as separation joints between floors made of different materials, while those in stainless steel are suitable for the protection of the edges of tiled steps and for heavy and frequent stresses. The bendable profiles Proangle Flex ZGF/ in natural aluminium have been used to separate and decorate the curvilinear surfaces.
The external corners profiles Proangle Q ZQAN/ in silver anodised aluminium and Proangle PV/ in stone grey PVC (RAL 7030) have been used for the external corners of coverings.
Lastly, the skirting boards Metal Line 89 in silver anodised aluminium have been laid to give a touch of innovation by keeping simplicity and linearity.
