I was on the crane. I got a special permission from the site manager.

Marti Holding AG, 27.08.2009:

Zurich’s Prime Tower – Marti’s Lofty Building Project

Marti is building Zurich’s Prime Tower. At 126 m high, it is the tallest building in Switzerland with 36 floors.

Client is the Swiss Prime Site AG. In a little bit more than 2 years, the first workers will be moving into their offices, drinks will be mixed in the Sky Lounge and the first articles will be sold in the shop on the ground floor: Zurich’s Prime Tower will be opening its doors in May 2011 right at the Hardbrücke suburban railway stop. This architecturally sophisticated project will encompass the Prime Tower along with the Cubus and Diagonal annexes.

The company Marti AG, Bauunternehmung, Zürich will be in charge of the construction work for erecting this stunning building on behalf of the general contractor, the Prime Tower joint venture. The subsidiary of Marti Holding AG, Bern is able to meet the ambitious deadline with skilful construction work, excellent job engineering, elaborate logistics and highly qualified personnel.

Due to the tower’s height of 126 m, two Wolff model self-climbing building construction cranes will be installed with a maximum hook height of 144.5 m and 40 m¹ length of jib. The cranes are re-anchored with bracing three times along the height on the tower’s exterior façade due to the horizontal forces caused by crane operation and wind loads. A grand total of 34,000 m3 of concrete will be prepared by Marti’s fully automatic site-mixed concrete equipment (Doubrava model Mobile City). The fact that concrete is processed at the construction site means that gravel and cement can be delivered outside of peak traffic periods while reducing the number of truck loads.

Work on the foundation started in January 2009 where a sole plate 2.20 m thick will be bearing the weight of 80,000 tonnes while 79 concrete piles with a diameter of 1.0 m and a length of 35 m¹ will back up the sole plate in the subgrade. In April 2009, work on the carcass of the upper floors began. In May 2009, the climbing scaffolding for cores 1-3 was installed. Due to the fact that the tower will be built without a façade shell, a protective shield (Xclimb 60) is the appropriate alternative. Mounted on the already concreted floors, it will guarantee the safety of the construction site personnel regardless of weather conditions.

The load-bearing structure of this high rise has to meet a whole series of requirements in terms of structural engineering, such as being earthquake-proof. Due to the building’s height and weight, an elaborate form of surveying is called for with a high level of measuring accuracy. In the coming 16 months, a total of 36 floors have to be built, which is a real challenge even for a construction company as seasoned and skilled as Marti Zürich.

the cladding looks crisp (although I'm not a fan of mirrored glas). what do people of zurich say about this project. it's got quite a significant impact on the city skyline already.

I'm confused. So this project contains 2 towers?
