JCB at ConExpo
TPN were familiar with the possibilities of the Space Building System™ and wanted to use it to create a showpiece structure for JCB at the 2008 ConExpo in Las Vegas, USA.
The structure needed to work as a temporary sales and marketing HQ for JCB for the duration of the show, enabling them to see and meet large volumes of prospects and clients in a showcase environment. To support this function, the structure needed to house reception areas, meeting rooms and areas, working office space, a dining hall, restaurant and JCB shop.
A huge three storey structure, 54m x 18m x 9m high, was constructed which featured a clear span atrium with staircases leading to mezzanine floors. The structure was supported with a space roof, which was built onsite and lifted on in three sections by crane. The roof has two purposes, a contemporary design feature for the external building negating the need internal supports and enabling the creation of a large and impressive indoor open space. The system also featured a tinted glass facade creating an elegant visual statement.
