Construction continues on the two-building Class A Office Mennica Legacy Tower, which will be comprised of a 35-story east tower and a 10-story west building located in the Central Business District of Warsaw. For this project, Epstein is serving as the architect and engineer of record, as well as the design engineer for MEP and structural engineering services. Our friends at Goettsch Partners are the design architects.
The construction of the Mennica development, due to the site’s relatively high water wall and the adjacent existing subway lines, is utilizing the "Slurry Wall," or "Diaphragm Wall," technique. Tom Suarez, PE, SE, Epstein’s Chief Structural Engineer and designer of Mennica’s structural system, explains what can be seen in the construction progress photos featured in this article:
“The structure has reached its full height and curtain wall installation has just a few floors remaining to complete. A photo of the spider crane used to erect the unitized curtain wall panels from the floor level above gives a preview of the sweeping views that will be enjoyed by future occupants. Other current progress includes the erection of the steel trusses supporting the rooftop screen wall and the work at ground level including the fountain at the plaza.”
Mennica is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2019.
