The property developer has successfully tested the façade modules of the HIGH LIFE project being built near the Garden Ring.
The tests were carried out at the production site of the Research Institute of Building Physics of the Russian Academy of Architecture and Building Sciences. The constructions confirmed the compliance of the parameters with the requirements of the normative documentation. The tests verified the resistance of the façades to air, water and wind.
A façade structure consisting of five modules was used for the tests. The module consists of a double-glazed thermally strengthened glass unit, aluminium and steel materials, waterproofing materials and insulation. During the tests, the surface of the façades was subjected to a variety of conditions, such as differential pressure, precipitation and wind gusts. The strength, tightness and durability of the structures were tested.
The façade systems were supplied by one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers, the Turkish Metal Yapi Holding, whose production facilities are located in Turkey and Russia (Tver).
The project includes panoramic windows with tilt-and-turn sashes for ventilation with restricted opening to ensure the safety of residents. Façade glazing is already being installed on the first-stage towers. It is planned to be completed in the summer of 2024.
The ensemble of premium HIGH LIFE skyscrapers consists of 6 ultra-modern towers up to 47 storeys high. A picturesque internal park of 2 hectares will be landscaped for residents’ recreation, and amenities will include recreation areas, an event hall, a workspace, a cinema, a terrace, a beauty zone, a massage room, a sauna, a yoga and gym, and a children’s playroom.
