The open, transparent glass Entrance Building will make use of state-of-the-art glass structures, developed and constructed by Octatube according to the latest technologies. It incorporates 650 square metres of cold-bent glazing, 12-metre-long glass roof beams, and 9.4-metre-long glass fins in the facade. The steel tube framework now in place is designed to support the glass roof and the facade. Because of the complex geometry and dozens of connection points, the steel structure has been engineered in 3D and pre-assembled in the factory to check all dimensions. The installation of the glass panels will begin in September.
