07 Jun Our triangulated beams stabilise the malley phare tower
The Malley Lumières centre in Prilly is planning to extend its western side with this groundbreaking 60-meter-high, 14-floor tower, which will welcome around 200 residents. An exemplary project from an energy and socio-cultural point of view.
The 2,000m3 of wood will be stabilised by 800 tonnes of steel structure produced by us. A total of three trusses on three levels of triangulation, representing 9 floors, are assembled one by one on the west side of the existing building. They are then launched (slid) onto two sliding bearings at the top of the north and south walls of the new building. The moved structure below weighs around 100 tonnes and has a span of 46 m, with subsequent spans of up to 350 tonnes.
