Architectural concrete finishes in downtown Belo Horizonte

Jan 18, 2023
The 'Catedral Cristo Rei' is under construction in Belo Horizonte and, when completed, will be the new headquarters of the Catholic Church in the city. The project, one of the last designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer between 2006 and 2010, will be a landmark building in the city.

ULMA has been involved in this important project since its beginning in 2013, which is being carried out with the diocese's own engineering team. A unique and complex project that is relying on all our know-how in formworkshoring systems and scaffolding systems, from systems for fair-faced concrete walls, which is a large part of the project's structures, to formwork for pillars, lightened slabs and access scaffolding.

A relationship based on trust, which translates into the successful execution of the work and within the deadlines required by the client.

Project data:

  • Gantry: 100 m high
  • Dome: 60 m diameter
  • Surface area: 24,000 m²
  • Capacity: 20,000 people
