It took four years to construct the biggest building in the Netherlands De Rotterdam, or Vertical City, on the bank of the River Maas. With the exterior constructed almost entirely out of glass bathing De Rotterdam in light from every angle Vetrotech contributed very significantly to the success of this daring project.
With the building weighing an extraordinary 230,000 tons, Vetrotech supplied a total of approximately 50,000m² of glass. Ensuring ultimate fire safety is a real challenge with a building of this magnitude.
To meet this brief, Vetrotech supplied their fire-resistant Contraflam® and Contraflam® LITE glass in various forms, offering tailor-made solutions with safety as the paramount concern. A truly magnificent feat of design and engineering, De Rotterdam is now clearly one of the most eye-catching and impressive glass buildings in the Netherlands.
