C-Shells is a specialized concrete dome architectural design firm focusing on development of monolithic concrete domes and thin-shell concrete structures. C-Shells also passionately pursues the advancement of concrete dome and concrete thin shell designs including:
all other architectural applications for monolithic concrete dome and concrete thin shell structures.
C-Shells looks to the intriguing elegance of historical thin-shell concrete architecture from designers such as Nervi, Isler, Candela, Tedesko, Saarinen and Utzon that exemplify the starting point for modern fluid concrete forms and insulated monolithic concrete thin shell architecture.
Working in collaboration with concrete dome industry pioneering Dome Technology for construction of the monolithic concrete thin shell, C-Shells with over 30 years of specialized construction expertise. Specialized concrete thin shell engineering is performed by ES2 for complex finite element analysis of monolithic concrete domes and other concrete thin shell structures.
C-Shells architects create concrete domes and other concrete thin shell structures that are sustainable, iconic, highly efficient facilities for schools, churches, community centers, sports facilities, amusement parks and similar buildings. C-Shells concrete dome and concrete thin shell designs are essential where durability, structural strength, large span interiors, and flexibility of interior space planning are required.
C-Shells’ modern thin shell architecture incorporates reinforced concrete insulated with polyurethane insulation, formed and waterproofed with high high-performing industrial fabrics into each monolithic concrete dome or concrete thin shell structure. Each concrete dome structure is developed and designed through a process of complex patterning and structural analysis using finite element analysis software to create dynamic monolithic concrete thin shell architecture for a new generation of lasting iconic high performance buildings.
