“A sparkling piece”

Along with the planning, manufacturing and installation of new building projects, we also have a special commitment to facade renovation, for sustainability in existing buildings.

At the Silver Tower in Frankfurt am Main, the challange lay in dismantling the existing 2,100 elements of this sparkling piece in the Frankfurt skyline, in only 10 months and replacing them with new elements using the existing outer deep drawing sheets.

Works:

The dismantling of over 2,100 storey high facade elements, whereby the outer deep drawing sheets were dismantled, cleaned and reused. The planning and manufacturing of new energy efficient high quality facade elements with triple insulation glazing. Then dismantling the whole facade elements, stairwell window elements and the slot -facade elements, and re-installing the facade in only 7 months.
