Helicopter Base Plate – Tampere, Finland

Tampere, Finland - August 2018

Project Description

Tampere University Heart Hospital replaced part of the original mesh specified for a new helicopter base plate addition with FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers. A fiber dosage of 4.5 kg/m3 was used in this high-profile project totaling 800 m2. Speed of construction increased because the amount of steel necessary to lift was reduced by using fibers. FORTA-FERRO fibers will increase the quality and durability of the structure as well.

Key Points
