Europe’s Tallest Building uses Trosifol®

By: Intern

The 462 meter tall Lakhta Tower, the tallest building of Europe has used Trosifol® glass. The building of Lakhta Tower occupies a 170,000 Sq m footprint on the shores of the Gulf of Finland in the Primorsky District, some 10 km northwest of St. Petersburg’s city center. Designed by the RMJM partnership under Tony Kettle’s direction, the project was managed by ZAO Gorprojekt; and the work planned by Samsung Production.

As a modern business center with many public functions, the building is intended to form the hub of a new downtown and take the strain off the historic city center.

Before the start of the World Cup 2018 in Russia, the fitters from façade constructor Gartner − aided by roped industrial climbers − install the last of the 3 x 4 m glass panes at heights of over 300 m, without helicopter assistance. This oversized needle, with its curved glass façade , now stands majestically over the Gulf of Finland, welcoming approaching cruise ships from afar. Over 3,000 people were involved in the construction, with some 600 Russian and international companies. Over 20,000 people from 18 countries involved in the project’s full realization.
