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 here:
‘The current progress shows the 10 story west tower with the concrete structure topped out and the curtain wall installation in progress. Construction on the taller east tower has reached the 10th floor, 5 floors above the podium roof and now into the repetitive typical office floors where one floor will be completed approximately every 5 days.’
Lastly, Mennica is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2019.
