Mexico: conclusion of the University Tower worksite

On December 13th, Cimesa, Mexican subsidiary of Soletanche Bachy, concluded the foundation, containment and earthworks by concreting the slab of the University Tower.


More than 1000 m3 concreted to a depth of 48 m in 12 hours, yet another magnificent performance by the site team!

As a reminder, University Tower is a mixed-used building with commercial and housing spaces of 58-storey tower and 18 circular basement levels with technical service spaces in central Mexico City. The tower is being constructed on a foundation system of barrettes at 74 metres depth and a self-supporting circular diaphragm wall at 48 metres.
