New tower in the centre of Lima, Peru

Mar 11, 2022
Torre República is the second building of the emblematic Capital Centre project located in the financial centre of San Isidro in Lima, Peru.

The building is focused on the user experience, providing day-to-day wellbeing for employees in addition to environmental efficiency. It consists of 19 floors of 1,500 m², 7 underground floors, a heliport, and recreational areas.

COMAIN formwork was used to construct underground retaining walls with reduced thickness, high quality, increased safety, and good design. From the first level onwards, the walls were built with LGW lightweight formwork. As a solution to the "C" shaped core for elevator shafts, the RKS guided climbing system was used in combination with LGW formwork panels. Given that it is a self-climbing system, a crane was not required for the construction of the walls on all levels (from floors 7 to 18).

The construction of the 72 metre high tower was complemented by HWS Perimeter safety screens from the third floor, a solution that creates safe working spaces that allow for both material storage and traffic inside the construction site.
