Poland: Six hundred square metres of Cultiwall in Afrykarium jungle

Saint-Gobain Cultilene has played a part in the realisation of the Afrykarium in Wroclaw, Poland. The Afrykarium is an indoor jungle that constitutes part of the completely renovated zoo in Wroclaw. Saint-Gobain Cultilene had worked with potted plant business Fachjan Project Plants from Honselersdijk before, creating a rhinoceros enclosure at Wroclaw Zoo in 2012. Fachjan Project Plants supplies large tropical trees and plants, whereas Cultilene provides the green walls (Cultiwall), as well as the irrigation for the entire project in cooperation with Mastop Totaal Techniek from Boskoop. This collaboration proved effective for the Afrykarium project, too, which incorporates 600 square metres of green walls.

In this Polish project, the two Saint-Gobain businesses of Weber and Cultilene worked very well together. The plants in the Afrykarium, which ultimately assume jungle proportions, grow in Leca clay granules made by Weber. Now that the first large and impressive showcase project has been completed, these two businesses should perhaps work together structurally to realise green elements in major building projects.
