High-rise building located in Warsaw
Warsaw UNIT is an investment located in Warsaw at Daszyńskiego roundabout. This high-rise building measures 202 meters, has 3 underground floors, 45 above ground floors and 6 technical floors at the top of the building. Its purpose is an office space.
Fort Polska carried out the reinforced concrete and steel structure design in a 3D environment, exchanging information with other participants of the design process using BIM tools. The steel structure design was developed at Tekla Structures. At the modeling stage, steel elements were assigned additional user parameters to facilitate filtering and possible collision control in external software. The weight of the steel structure is estimated at around 290 tons.
The main element of the designed steel structure is the cladding steel structure of the technical stories facade and the construction of the last two stories constituting the platform for the washing machine. In addition to the elements mentioned above, a lot of smaller constructions were designed, among others stairs, service platforms, access ladders, balustrades, installation supports, spacious trusses in the lobby, and the steel structure of the panoramic elevator. As a part of the steel structure design, approximately 400 specifications and drawings have been made.
Thanks to our work at Tekla Structures, we were able to take into account a very large number of elements of other industries while designing, thus minimizing the number of collisions at the construction site.
The Projekt Polsko-Belgijska Pracownia Architektury Sp. z o. o. is responsible for the architecture and coordination, the installations were designed by AER Polska, and the author of the construction design is Fort Polska. The investor, Ghelamco Poland, plans to complete the building in 2021.
