Global Tower Frankfurt am Main
Refurbishment of Global Tower Frankfurt am Main
The building complex includes a 4 storey height podium including an inner courtyard, and 2 tower blocks with 24 and 29 levels. The taller of them having a recessed Plant area at Roof level.
Similar to the former design, the outer face of both the glazed units and the adjacent metal spandrel cladding panels are flush in one plane, to achieve a “polished” monolithic appearance of the building.
The new façade is designed to achieve the highest Sustainability certification – DGNB Platin for the building.
