The large scale construction for Commercial Aircraft Cooperation of China required a partner that could deliver market leading solutions that were fire resistant as well as aesthetically appealing, suitable for an extensive aviation project.

ROCKWOOL's Rokcore panel was selected after a rigorous tender process to supply its external wall insulation system across a number of building types. The development covers an astounding 2.67 million square metres with a total construction area of about 1.15 million square metres that included research office, logistic centre, assembly plant and an auxiliary zone among others. 

Being a strategic decision of the China Central Government, this project is the nation's long-term science and technology development plan over 14 years since 2006. It not only represents the strong comprehensive national strength of the country but also served as a large passenger aircraft assembly base.

Despite various challenges to securing the project, the owner unanimously decided to go with Rokcore due to its overall product performance, quality and brand promise. Together with strong recommendation that came from IKEA Shanghai and CAPDI (design institute) definitely had a great influence on their final decision.

The contract included five buildings covering a total area of over 51,000 square metres. Rokcore flat surface panels in silver and white with a thickness of 175mm and 200mm fulfilled the requirements for aesthetic appeal and fire resistance properties. High strength Structek stone wool core helps Rokcore panels meet the maximum span of the building to reach 9 metres without any structural support in the middle. Additionally, with the single span system in place, it further enhanced the appearance of the interior and exterior surfaces of the building.
