Our knowledge and expertise allow such structures to move from Architectural design, through plan approval and into production faster and more efficiently. In addition, Solico frequently supports the end-user by providing independent supervision and quality assurance of production facilities.
Our specialisation is composite engineering. We believe composites can make a difference in the Architectural world, because of their many advantages:
In summary, composites can turn every complex design into reality. Check all the benefits of composites.View all cases
Together with Vink BVBA, Solico worked on the quay bridge for Umicore. The bridge is 120 meters long and is made 100% of composite material. The bridge is composed of several parts which were assembled using bolts, nuts and connection profiles.

The 5 roofs, designed to look like dove wings, were not achievable using conventional materials. The option of using concrete material measured over 1m in thickness. This would have resulted in far too much weight for the building to sustain.

The life-size pumping station in Madurodam is a replica of the Cruquius pumping station, used in the Netherlands to drain lakes and reclaim land. This replica has 6m long 'cast-iron' look glass fibre reinforced composite arms that move the pumps.
An innovative Canopy for the new bus station in Aalst, Belgium was manufactured and installed by PolyProducts. Solico was responsible for the engineering of this challenging project. This is a truly innovative project which shows that composites are not only very durable and strong but can look good as well.
