start of design
engineering to
completion
FRENER & REIFER is currently design engineering, fabricating and installing several facades, a pedestrian bridge and two glazed courtyard roofs for the La Samaritaine project. Find more details here …

Scope of work

Design engineering, fabrication and installation of 10 construction lots, including the:
  • Undulating Glass Facade:
    Graduated mirror print (magnetron process).
    Each individual undulating pane is supported using stainless steel brackets at four points.
  • Thermal Facade:
    Triple-glazing, bi-directional E30 glass complying with fire-protection requirements.
  • Facade Blanche:
    Laminated safety glass with graduated white dot matrix screen print (0.8 mm diameter) and pivoted panes for cleaning access.
  • Patio Facade:
    Bespoke facades with unidirectional E30 glass complying with fire-protection requirements.
  • Roof Level Facade:
    3.5 m all-glass facade incl. sliding doors.
  • Ombrelle (Glass Roof):
    Roof construction with strut and tension bar substructure and curved vertical facade.
  • Dome (Glass Roof):
    18 x 20 m, cable-supported free-form steel/glass roof construction. Partially in unidirectional E30 glass complying with fire-protection requirements.
  • Pedestrian Bridge:
    Fully glazed load-bearing steel construction.

Innovations / Challenges

  • Scope of project: many different highly complex facade types. Tight installation schedule.
  • Difficult logistics of constricted, city-centre site with no storage capacity.
  • 3D roof design.
