This high-rise building, designed for both residential, office, and retail space, utilizes Reynaers ConceptWall 86 system. CW 86 is a well-insulated curtain wall that complies with all requirements for large building projects. The energetic performance of the system is offered in different levels, providing thermally insulated aluminum profiles. Specific drainage methods like cascade drainage lift this façade to the highest demands in water- and airtightness. This makes this system applicable for extreme conditions like high altitudes.
