The self-climbing systems of ULMA Construction in full flowleafy

The Q22 tower, one of the tallest skyscrapers in Poland, is erected in the centre of the capital. At 194 m in height including its flagpole, this office building will have a surface area of 50,000 m2 distributed over 47 floors, 5 of them underground.

The design of the Q22 is a product of the Kuryłowicz & Associates architecture firm, fruit of a collaboration with the Polish firm of BuroHappold. The project has obtained the Breeam Interim Excellent certificate with the highest rating in Poland. Among the assessment criteria were those of energy efficiency, materials used, waste management and labour environment.

ULMA Construction has put into operation a wide range of structuralframeworks and scaffolding among which the self-climbing systems feature heavily. With these products it is possible to build very high structures and buildings without the need for a crane. With the ATR system, four cores or lift shafts have been built while the HWS perimeter protections have guaranteed the safety of the workers both in terms of adverse weather conditions and possible falls of both people and objects, normal risks in very tall constructions.

The works we initiated in July 2014 and are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2016.
