"It will support a work with aesthetic, architectural contribution and provide quality of life." "The technology in this work represents a crucial element in the structural part is worked with a leading structural engineering software SAP"
"10 years ago there were several projects always thinking out of the ordinary among them Sunflowers building and building an improved structure Sunflowers 2, both in the area of. Then we move into the area of ​​Sopocachi in St. George, located in August 6th Avenue between Pinilla and Gosálvez, which gave life to the project "Sunflowers Tower" which is currently under construction and will be the tallest building in Bolivia, "says architect Guido Alberto Iriarte, General Manager of the company NYL" Marking a new line "with his partner Mr. Nathaniel Eguez and Architect Luis Mitro promote the work.

The "Tower Sunflowers" is planned as the tallest skyscraper in Bolivia with a total of 40 floors, 150 meters high covering an area of ​​2,600 m2 extension will have 130 apartments, parks, Aparthotel with 18 apartments, 4 levels parking with 180 parking spaces and 3 floors for Department Stores. "The Architectural" works on the design and consulting, construction area is in charge DICA construction company.

"It will support a work with aesthetic, architectural contribution and provide quality of life."

"We leave the stylization of a sunflower that grows to form the tower, has tried to combine the departments, offices and freeing Hotel revenue and elevators to avoid traffic problems."

"It's not our idea was to climb the 40 floors, when we presented the blueprint for mayor marked us some guidelines, we were forced to do more retirement and this aspect gave us greater coverage area for this reason we changed for the second time project and improve the distribution to a more complex solution. It was decided to perform a step, on the front of the August 6th Avenue and allow the passage Villegas greater retirement. "

"The development of the project started several years ago, the budget was set but this amount has increased by higher material and labor, we are running 8 to 9 million dollars in the construction price, we are covering up $ 450 per square meter. "

The building has a reinforced concrete platform that took more than a week in the emptying of the dishes, all works were paralyzed the city for this important part of construction.

"The project is designed to be completed in 6 months, we schedule, we have won a month in the structural part, we hope to gain more time on the fine work, are bringing materials from abroad and also several innovations that are floors, work with local companies in the wood supply in the woodworking and furniture. "

Because the dimensions of the tower, had to carry out a preliminary investigation process due to the difficulty of constructing a building floor 40 for use in reinforced concrete. It is using a much higher resistance concrete, steel and most are implementing a seismic system.

The technology in this work represents a crucial element, in the structural part is worked with a leading structural engineering software "SAP", essential for optimum results. For a structural analysis employed a geotechnical study which gives the result of the formation of type and dimensions of the work. "The end is which is 40 meters below."

"He brought a professional company that Geosystem living in Santa Cruz, brought new technology, made a kind of tomography to the field to see if there is water and good conformation."

Engineer Rolando Grandy, specializing in structures, performed the structural calculations to apply knowledge in seismology and thereby respond to the characteristics and conditions. "So we changed back the architectural design project due to such large and massive columns which required confined space within departments, the structure forced us to make changes," adds the architect Iriarte.

"Our job is also to see how engineers work in the work to solve the structure that is most important (sanitary, electrical, natural gas pipelines, Cable TV, telephone wiring, heating, etc..) each specialty represents a different challenge. In the electrical system must have additional engines because of the size of the building to generate light if there is any damage or cut. We worked with a different type of water pump that has the power enough to climb all 40 levels. "

Sunflowers Tower is one of the first buildings with an intermediate floor where there will be changes of direction for ongoing improvement. The Tower will have a sprinkler system for domestic gas use throughout the building.

For the business side is bringing thermal and acoustic flooring from Germany, are using aluminum and special glasses also THERMAL maintaining the temperature and prevent external noise and wind, also high traffic resistant materials as porcelain, granite, etc..

Kindly SOBOCE colaborarnos with a special pump for buildings of this magnitude, we are working with Ready Mix.

"One of the most important is the quality that we provide to the employee satisfaction for us as a company is that people work at home with all the necessary conditions, their mutual relations is good. Represents a logistical even at the time of supply of workers are being intermediate dining and bathrooms. Implemented two special elevators for personnel and material.

"In Bolivia we have monumental buildings of high quality and magnitude, in the case of the Tower Sunflowers in La Paz that meets all international standards, we are on the same level of developed countries. We believe in our country and our people, I we're in a time when we can move forward to Bolivia. "

No creo que sea motivo de burla el hecho de que un país abusivo como Chile le halla quitado las playas a Bolivia. Es como sinos burláramos de todo el territorio que USA le quitó a México...no es bonito.
