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.

This 231 meters (751 feet) high, 254,720 square meters (2,700,000 square feet), multi-use high-rise is made up of two 55-story towers. This New York landmark is home to Time-Warner head office, and houses a hotel, condominiums, a concert hall and offices. ADF fabricated a total of 23,000 tons for the building’s steel superstructure, including, among others, complex steel built-ups and close to 19,500 steel components. Special engineering solutions were developed to efficiently isolate the concert hall from the main building, and to support the top 20 concrete floors.
