Europe's tallest tower

24 April 2008

Construction of Moscow's US$ 500 Million (€ 395 Million), Twin Towered Federation Tower, part of the Moscow City development, is now underway. Turkey-based Ant Yapi is using Meva's formwork systems to complete work on the 57-storey tower B.

Based on triangular footprints, the two glass-clad towers will face each other - one 342 m tall, the other 240 m. Both towers are attached to a 440 m high core spire (for lift and stair shafts). Once complete in 2007 it will be Europe's tallest building.

Meva's plastic-faced (alkus) Mammut panels are used on a self-climbing formwork platform. Ant Yapi chose the Mammut system because of its high load capacity, and rigidity. The alkus plastic facing means the panels have a long service life and can be re-used numerous times during the construction cycle. At present one storey is completed every three days.
