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 sites relatively high water wall and the adjacent existing subway lines, is utilizing the "Slurry Wall," or "Diaphragm Wall," technique. Tom Suarez, PE, SE, Epsteins chief structural engineer and designer of Mennicas structural system, explains what can be seen in the construction progress photos featured in this article:
"With the faÃ§ade completed on the lower west tower, the interior build out has begun."
"Furthermore, now that construction on the taller east tower has reached the 27th floor, the notch in the floor plan at the south east corner is becoming more dramatic with the corner column sloping outward at 2.41 degrees."
Mennica is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2019.
