Office Towers and High-Rises
ADF Group has successfully delivered several projects for the design and engineering of connexions, the fabrication and the installation of steel structures and complex and heavy steel built-ups for high-quality office towers and skyscrapers in North America, including more than a dozen in New York alone.
Several of these multipurpose buildings house offices, condominiums, shops and restaurants, as well as some spectacular large halls, which usually feature specific geometry and architecture and are subject to special requirements and strict tolerances.
