Reforma en el Estadio Molinon

Spain


Ceilings GOEN AISLAMIENTOS

El Molinón Stadium is a municipal sports venue located in the city of Gijón, Asturias, Spain. It houses the matches played at home by Real Sporting de Gijón and its name refers to a large hydraulic mill that was erected in the vicinity of the river Piles when it was built. Recently a series of renovations have been carried out, incorporating PLACO® solutions in different spaces of this emblematic football stadium, including a new boutique, press room, TV sets and players' dressing rooms.

Key Achievements

  • The use of RIGITONE® on walls is a regionally uncommon solution to reverberation control.
  • The use of the multiple PLACO® solutions required cohesion between them.

Key Challenges

Each space requires specific needs, which have been solved through the installation of different PLACO® systems. In the areas with humidity requirements PLACOMARINE® plasterboard has been installed. HABITO® has been used to ensure the fixation of monitors in the TV sets, where RIGITONE® ceiling has also been incorporated in vertical walls to improve the acoustic conditioning. In the boutique area, the installation of the 4PRO® plasterboard has been chosen, offering a perfect final finish due to its four refined edges and its ease of adaptation to any type of project.
