SANTIAGO. - In June 2006, began the work of the building project would be the icon of the country, with the tallest skyscraper in South America. Today, six years later, the Gran Torre Costanera Center reaches 300 meters, reaching its highest elevation.
The coronation is the raising of the structure which terminates at the stage of structural work, a process in which the crane takes the last piece of pure steel, which weighs 5,090 kilos of a total of 354 tons, and raises it to the dimension 300.
With 107,125 meters square and 63 floors, the building was designed by Alemparte, Barreda & Associates, together with Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, creators of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and executed by Salfa Corp.
The Gran Torre Costanera Center will be an office building, which will operate under the system of free plants and a surface area varies between 100 and 2,000 square meters. They will have the highest international safety standards and infrastructure, most notably HVAC variable volume with air handlers per floor; THERMAL UV and impact resistance of floor to ceiling, an average height of 4.10 meters per floor, making the 300 meters free interior, among other features.
Also, a new system of 24 elevators Schindler allow the free movement of people for mega real estate project, of which 19 are of the "double cab". The command of the elevators will be through a technique of next generation traffic management and access control, ID-based Schindler an access control mechanism of destinations, which transports users depending on the floor at that address. Thanks to this, you will maximize passenger capacity and optimize the movement in addition to saving energy and traveling time.
"The constructive challenge, the systems used and the working height, represented a huge challenge. This is not a common task. Work at these levels of heights was an unprecedented event in Chile and, why not say, Latin America, which We are proud, "said Fernando Zuniga Ziliani, general manager of Salfa Engineering and Construction.
The progress of the Great Tower, to date, required 1,621,401 hours man, with a peak of 405 workers Salfa direct and indirect. Currently 265 people work in construction and 92 Salfa Salfa Assembly. About 72,000 cubic meters of concrete and 16,000 tons of iron are part of the structural work of the mega project.
The coronation process involved the participation of 92 direct and indirect workers, including operators, preventers, builders and supervisors, in an estimated one hour.

Does anyone know why they constructed the last bit of the top out of steel as opposed to concrete? Are there any actual floor/floorspace towards the top? Just curious to know if this is a seismic construct or maybe something else...

There will be an observation platformon top of the last concrete steel, within the steel structure, and a couple of mechanical floors on the last bit of the core, inside that structure too. I thing it was designedt that way because it would be the most gracefull way to finish the tower, and such a thin structure would be too weak, if not impossible to build using concrete.

Uy qué pena me da que esta torre no esté en tu ciudad.

I'm so so sad that this tower isn't built in your city

Diestro,

Please learn some(just a little bit of) English before posting in this forum. Aside from the first phrase I have absolutely no idea what you were trying to say. You might as well have written, "lsadflaskdfj;alskdfja;s lfkdjslfjdalskfjd lkjasdlfjk"

Congrats to Santiago:
- for having the first topped-out supertall scraper in Latin America!
- for a greatly improving skyline, together with the Andes in background.

Wow, it looks amazing... Santiago will have the most beautiful South American skyline undisputed when this is ready! But it does seem like it's taking forever to finish...
