Sugar City, Amsterdam (NED)
TG-THERM®plus creates connections
In 2000, the improvement of an old industrial area of a sugar refinery was the beginning of Sugar City. The two sugar silos were completely new designed und are nowadays used as offices and show rooms. Meanwhile, the old factory building serves as a location for various events, and furthermore, 56 companies are located. Further planned objects are an outlet, a hotel and a super market.
In December 2007, the reconstruction measures of the two silos into offices were completed. In 2014/2015, a bridge, which connects both towers, was built. The bridge is constructed of four point-fixed insulating glass sheets TG-THERM®plus, each measuring 3,618 x 2,670 mm. Additionally, a pigmented pvb film in the color called “true blue” is integrated. The Dutch company Scheuten Absoluut Glastechniek, which is acting in the glass sector for 65 years, was responsible for the installation of the glass elements.
Sugar City – At first seen as a controversial reconstruction, is now a several awarded high-quality project. It contains both the former sugar silos, which are today the trademarks of the Dutch town Halfweg, and the large area of the 108,000 m².
