The particular challenge of this project was the erection, as the panes of glass had to be lifted off the delivery vehicle parked in a narrow street, over the five storeys and then lowered into the narrow inner courtyard. It was vital to ensure that the radius of the bent insulating glass was not altered by the operations or the attachment points for the lifting gear. From loading the transport vehicle at the production plant to selecting the erection equipment, the entire operation was planned meticulously.
The provision of the atrium glazing demonstrates the comprehensive all-glass skills of seele. The unique transparency of the glass roof creates a successful bond between the lobby and the balconies around the inner courtyard.
