Construction Log October: Springs before Winter

Just before winter arrives, the main facades are installed. It has been our biggest project yet with a total area of more than 150,000 sqm. It has been one of the more challenging ones, where our involvement stays literally skin deep only (being in charge of the facade and the interiors mainly) with late involvement of us into the project and little room to turn major design decisions prior to us around. 

However, the facade concept is executed very well and with great precision. The changing depth of the mullions and the illumination at night will work well once completed. And we are looking forward to the completion of the project end of 2017.
