Type of building


Drywall systems can help create an environment that is comfortable and aesthetically attractive to visitors and workers, especially:

• To provide the robustness to withstand heavy wear-and-tear
• To control acoustic transmission and absorption
• To create a clean, bright aesthetic

  • Walkways
  • Foyers and entrances
  • Restaurants and cafeterias
  • Shops
  • Boardrooms and meeting rooms
  • Video conferencing rooms
  • Rooms adjoining foyers and common areas
  • Service shafts and plant rooms
  • Acoustic bulkheads


For larger projects, we add value before, during and after the construction phase. Working with the project team, we can support the initial tender, finding ways to improve aesthetics or building performance, cut construction costs, reduce build times or suggest ways to lower on-going maintenance costs.

GO Interiors Branch Office

When this drylining system distributor required it's own drylining solution to create robust partitions, they chose LaDura. The separating wall, between the offices and the busy distribution centre, not only needed to be robust enough to withstand the constant demands of customer footfall and large deliveries but, also make the staff office space comfortable and quiet.The Office walls needed the additional requirement to hang information boards and office equipment.  LaDura is Siniat's strongest plasterboard and with this brings the flexibility to move and add workstations due to LaDura's excellent pull out resistance. The direct fixing of hung loads such as computer monitors without the need for pattresses, allows GO Interiors more possibilities with how they use their workspaces and in a busy office environment this can be extremely useful.


ICE Krakow Congress Center is located in Krakow. It is modern conference and cultural centre. Taking almost 5 years to construct and was a key investment in the Malopolska Region. Three main meeting/ICE can accommodate up to 3200 people, and since opening in October 2014 became the site of numerous congresses, concerts, shows and exhibitions. The design centre is the result of collaboration architects Krzysztof Ingarden and Jacek Ewý and Japanese design studio Arata Isozaki & associate from Tokyo.The functional building has innovative architecture and a prestigious location with a view of the Wawel Castle.In recognition of the investment the project won 5 "stars", in The International Property awards in the category of the best architectural design.
