Westpoint Residential Towers, Tilburg. 2003-2004
These eye-catching 147 metre tall residential towers are located in the heart of Tilburg. The residential towers are home to 154 apartments and were the tallest residential towers in the Netherlands for years following their completion in 2004. GVI installers fitted all of the many window frames, facades and glass panels. The installation of the floor-to-ceiling facades in particular was a sophisticated technological feat at the time: two storey-high and wide window frames were placed in suspended scaffolding constructions specifically designed for this project. The self-supporting scaffolding, hanging from a higher floor, used its own weight to stay in place. This allowed for incredibly quick installations for two apartments high and across!
