As one of the tallest structures in Germany, the 246-meter-high ThyssenKrupp test tower in Rottweil is fully wrapped with a combination of 15.900 square meters of PTFE coated fiberglass mesh fabrics. The unique vertical configuration required our team to also design-engineering and built a fully TÜV-approved temporary installation platform – a parallel engineering benchmark by itself. This project was awarded with 2019 International Achievement Award (IAA).
