The Challenge

How to carry the high loads of a safety system for cleaning the façades from the outside with loads being transmitted from steel end plates into the reinforced concrete frame.

The Solution

In this magnificent building designed by Renzo Plano, TBF was used to thermally decouple the façade, the panoramic lift and the roof balconies from the steel frame of the building.

The Outcome

A clean, efficient and compact solution that achieved all of structural and thermal requirements and was installed easily and quickly.
