Fraco Products has supplied platforms to complete the “Water Cube,” the National Swimming Center that will form part of the Beijing Olympic Park for the 2008 Olympic Games. Its mast climbers were first used to install parts of a frame comprising 22,000 steel beams connected at 12,000 nodes. In the second phase, the platforms were used to tighten a semi–transparent lightweight plastic polymer skin wrapping around the frame. This project follows Fraco's involvement two years ago in the construction of the National Grand Theatre in Beijing.
