Demanding welded structures and installation

The new regional office of the Norwegian company Statoil will be a nine-storey architecturally unique building, which also makes structural design a challenge. The building will have five separate rectangular wings stacked on top of each other as if to form a star.

Large-scale truss elements for lamellas were welded on-site (length 30 m, height 12,5 m, weight 100 ton). The trusses were lifted into place with lattice boom crawler crane, one of the biggest in Europe.

Strict quality, environmental and work safety regulations due to  long spans and thick welding materials (up to 80 mm).

“Ruukki was the natural choice of partner because of its raft of experience in similar demanding construction projects. We have every confidence in Ruukki’s project management and design competence in demanding projects.”
