Krystallen (The Crystal)
About the project
The curtain wall system HansenUnitAl was chosen for The Crystal in Copenhagen.
The Crystal, designed by schmidt hammer lassen architetcs, is the largest overall closing contract with glass and aluminum in Denmark to date.
The contract includes:
5,000 m² double facade made as unitised facades with HansenUnitAl
800 m² roof with skylight, panels and solar cells
800 m² covering on the underside
With prefabricated unitised elements, the facade with the 800 elements was assembled in just 29 working days.
The quick assembly was ensured by the use of the facade system Hansen UnitAl for unitised curtain walls. The 100% prefabricated elements move hours from the construction site into production. Highest quality under controlled conditions independent of the conditions on the construction site.
