Westerlaan Tower unveiled

In Rotterdam the scaffolding of the Westerlaan Tower is being removed to reveal the building's new facade composed of ceramic tiles and natural stone. The redevelopment of this former office tower is the third phase in the redesign of the former headquarters of Vopak, the multinational company whose offices now only occupy the low-rise part of the project. The tower will contain flexible office space on floors 2 through 11, and luxurious apartments on floors 12 through 20. The apartments will have sizeable balconies that are supported by steel frameworks on each of the four facades. In order to safely build the wooden floors and glass balustrades of these balconies, an ingenious working method was designed by general contractor Dura Vermeer. A steel cage is hoisted onto and fixed to the framework, allowing the builders to work without any risk at all. A copper dome on the roof hides all kinds of installations, including a building maintenance cradle for regular access to the facade after the building is completed.
