About This Project
  • Construction of perimeter facade by composite panel and GRC.
    Continuous steel curtain walls on top floor and terrace completely irregular shapes.
    Study of the glass curtain wall, realization of plans and their subsequent placement.

 

Specific solutions:

 

The design of the “landscape” or “fruit basket” consisting of polygonal curtain walls, was one of the biggest technical challenges we faced, and the measurement of more than 550 glasses of irregular shape. It required a thorough 3D study of each.

 

Regarding the exterior coordination and technical solutions, especially water tightness and leaks, were another challenge equal or greater than before. All this conditioned by the short deadline that was fulfilled exactly.
