Itamar Franco Cultural Center

Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Category: Entertainment, Tourist Attraction


Located in Barro Preto, the center of Belo Horizonte, this new hub for cultural events and tourism houses the Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra (in a 1,400-seat acoustic hall) and the city’s Radio Inconfidência and Rede Minas de Televisão. The architecturally striking complex needed a waterproofing solution for the high water table and tropical climate of the construction site.

Products Used:

Around 1,000 m3 of concrete were treated with PENETRON ADMIX for all underground concrete perimeter walls and a retaining wall. Also, PENEBAR SW-55 was applied for the construction joints.
