CEMEX concrete used in Mexican concert hall
Published by Jonathan Rowland,
The new Foro Boca concert hall in Boca del Rio, Veracruz, Mexico, was constructed using 9000 m3 of high-durability concrete from CEMEX, the Mexican building materials supplier recently announced. The new concert hall is home to the Boca del Rio Philharmonic Orchestra and will also host theatre, cinema and contemporary dance shows.
The concrete supplied by CEMEX was designed specifically for the project at its Cement and Concrete Technology Centre to combine the required aesthetic finish with durability to survive the coastal location of the concert hall.
In addition, CEMEX offered a significant customer support to the project: from pouring the concrete at specific times to training foreman in correct concrete vibration.
Foro Boca was designed by the architect, Michel Rojkind. It is built on an area of about 7000 m2 and comprises a concert hall for 850 people, as well as a rehearsal room, a panoramic terrace, and offices. The venue also features state-of-the-art isoptic acoustic technical equipment and theatre mechanics that make it one of the most sophisticated concert halls in Mexico.
