Scope of work

  • Design-engineering, fabrication and installation of 1,900 m2 exterior glass facade, a circumferential aluminium transom/mullion construction with insulating glazing

  • Rooflights (depth/width 1 m x 2 m)
  • 8 sliding doors, approx. width/height 4 m x 2.8 m
  • fully glazed connecting corridor (height/width 4 m x 3.2 m), consisting of a steel transom/mullion construction with a glass canopy projecting by 2.8 m

Innovations / Challenges
