Telecommunication mast (in progress)
This support mast for green telecommunications was designed in collaboration with Art & Fact Innovation for Guadeloupe. Its purpose is to offer a structure resistant to earthquakes and cyclones capable of a lasting integration into the landscape. Its design combines structural performance and environmental quality, and its manufacture ensures a very long service life.
3D Printing benefits
This 12-meter mast is produced by printing six high-performance concrete segment forms, which are then poured and assembled, to finally accommodate a post-stress device. Printing allows the integration of different functions of the elements – design, assembly, antenna support, plant support – so as to greatly simplify and speed up manufacturing. The lost formwork remains in place and acts as a protective skin for the concrete poured inside. The whole creates a solid and durable column, capable of effectively resisting severe weather events. The design is customizable to ensure good landscape integration.
