The elements were mounted on the load-bearing structure by way of cast-in channels and hook fixings. The basic element measures approx. 1.5m x 4m, but there are many variations on this unit, including different dimensions and shapes, sloping edges or two-storey elements. In some instances the design was modified to suit the particular location: elements with ventilation louvres for the plant rooms, plain aluminium elements, or units with low-iron glass for display windows. In addition, there are atrium façades, a two-storey post-and-rail façade at entrance level and glass canopies on all sides. With so many different types, further increased by a wide range of colours, plus the tight schedule, this is a project where seele has demonstrated how its skilled logistics personnel handle such complex façades.
