SCOPE OF WORK
Design, fabrication and execution of façade cladding and internal civil works, covering:
- – 4’700 sqm of concealed aluminum window system and glazing works, replacing the previously installed steel frames, while maintaining the aesthetical look of the façade. High performance acoustical low-iron glazing insuring maximum comfort to the tenants.
- – 4’875 sqm of nano glass stone cladding, hung on special mechanical rail fixations, insuring a flush surface between the cladding and the aluminum works.
- – Internal civil works.
The above works were carried out while the building and offices were fully operational, using night shift and requiring full coordination with tenants and building management.
