Arched To Awe: Amritsar Entry Gate
A project that stands proudly at the entrance of the majestic city of Amritsar, this was a project that challenged us to test our potential. The sheer size of the Amritsar Entry Gates made it our equivalent of the Taj Mahal, where traditional architecture meets longevity. With a dome covering 4000 sq. ft. it is the second largest dome in diameter after India’s entry in the seven wonders of the world.
It has a height of 50 meters and arch-shaped. The main challenge was to avoid increasing the structural load at the top. For this the low density, thermally efficient concrete Xlite was the best fit.
The biggest USP of Xlite concrete is its
– Low-density output (600-1800 kg/m3)
– Reduced structural weight
– High heat sustenance
This leads to the beautiful structural finish of these stunning landmarks.
Nuvoco takes pride in shaping the face of new India.
