Covering a waste collection station

The municipality of Nissewaard has brought together waste collection, waste processing and other public space tasks in a company called N.V. Reinis. The existing site of Reinis is in an area earmarked for future housing construction and needs to be relocated soon. As part of the establishment of the new waste collection station, Witteveen+Bos put forward proposals for an iconic and recognisable membrane covering of the entrance and the small chemical waste depot. The covering consists of a number of roof elements made up of a steel frame with a tensioned membrane in between. This allows the use of a relatively light roof with large spans, thus limiting usage of materials and transportation. The design further made allowance for the building method: the steel structure can be erected in its entirety before the membranes are installed.
