European Parliament of Strasbourg
The European Parliament is a symbol of peace of freedom, and the building has incredibly high technical requirements and sustainability goals. FOAMGLAS® thermal insulation protects the massive 15.000 m2 roof of the European Parliament thanks to its perfect dimensional stability and impenetrability.
The European Parliament houses a semicircle of 750 seats, more than 1,100 offices, and 18 committee rooms with 50 to 350 seats. The building’s architecture embodies the principal of democracy as a carrier of peace and freedom. All stakeholders in this project, including Bureau d’Etude OTE, chose very high technical requirements and sustainability goals.
To ensure the longevity of the building, FOAMGLAS® was chosen for insulating the roof terrace. The insulation’s closed glass cell structure ensures dimensional stability and vapour tightness, providing total protection for the large terrace. With its minimum 60% recycled glass content, and true sustainability, FOAMGLAS® contributes to a truly ecological and sustainable future for this most important European building.
