dst national group builds tower in Europe’s new financial centre

23-10-2017

 

The project, which represents a turnover of 6.8 million euro for bysteel, will be a real technical test, and the intervention in the dense environment of the La Défense business complex will be its main challenge.

 

Bysteel, a Portuguese dst group company, will strengthen its presence in the French market, having won the contract to design, manufacture and assemble the metal structures of the Trinity Tower, in Paris.

 

The Trinity Tower will be a new generation building located in La Défense, in which is expected to become the biggest financial centre in Europe.

 

"Bysteel is responsible for the connections, manufacture and assembly of the metal structures and composite decking of the Trinity building, to be developed over a total area of 52 000 square meters, in 32 storeys, including 3000 square metres of new public spaces and services", clarifies a statement from the dst group.

 

According to this document, "with an innovative shape and appearance, the Trinity building will consist of two spread blades, and will have balconies and gardens in the East and West facades, for a greater natural air-intake in each floor”.

 

Another special innovation of this high-rise tower are the lifts, which, unlike the traditionally hidden ones, will be located on the outside of the La Défense tower building, in order to receive luminosity.

 

The project, which represents a turnover of 6.8 million euro for bysteel, will be a real technical test, and the intervention in the dense environment of the La Défense business complex will be its main challenge.

 

The tower will be built on an avenue with seven traffic lanes that will remain operational, as well as fire services, buses and hotels, among others.

 

The Trinity Tower aims to obtain more demanding environmental certifications, including the HQE - high quality environmental standard, Excellent BREEAM rating and Thermal Regulation 2012 - 25%.

 

It will be the first office tower in France to obtain this HQE certification, reaching 14 points in the “high performance” level.

 

According to Rodrigo Crespo de Araújo, director of bysteel, "this work project represents a very important achievement for the company's 'portfolio', since it is the construction of an emblematic building in one of the most recognized business centres in the world."

 

In addition to this work contract, bysteel currently has in its French market portfolio more than 30 million euros in works, among which are worth mentioning the new phase of the Roland Garros stadium, the second intervention phase of the Lyon Airport, and the Longchamp hippodrome.

 

Bysteel is a company that specializes in the conception/design, production and assembly of metal structures and facade systems.

 

Besides operating in Portugal, France, United Kingdom and Angola, bysteel is also responsible for exporting steel structures all over the world.

 

Bysteel was considered in 2014 one of the four largest Portuguese exporting companies.
