Atrio, North Tower

The Atrio Office Towers complex stands-out in terms of complexity, design assistance and location.

 

For the project, Supermétal has teamed up with 2 local fabricators in Colombia who produced the beams while Supermétal fabricated the complex nodes of the diagrid. The company’s own Construction Division is erected the building aided by a local Colombian workforce.

Supermétal’s client is a consortium of leading Colombian and Canadian builders Arpro and EllisDon. ARUP, PyD and Rogers Stirk Harbour are the engineers and architects.

Design Assist Elements

  • The complex diagrid design requires large connection plates at the nodes, encased by pipe. 
     

  • Supermétal has custom-designed a 7-story temporary shoring column to support the overhang, featuring a 250-ton hydraulic jack.
     

  • In-floor tower crane tie-back system.
