Construction process

Fast and safety construction system

The constructive plan designed by CMD Ingenieros reduced the construction terms, guaranteed the quality of the works and minimize operators in huge heights or during the operations with large pieces.

The first modules were built on the definitive point. The rest were mounted in an auxiliary area, lifting each piece with a big crane to their respective position over the precedent module. With this method, we could work simultaneously on two modules requering a short time for completing the whole structure.

The top sphere was divided into four rings or blocks to make easier the hoisting operation. The sphere leans over the tower’s pillars thanks to eight supporting points built at the equator level.
