Tradewinds Towers is a mixed-use development located in Marina Bay on Gibraltar’s west coast.
The development consists of three linked towers comprising 81 apartments and two penthouses in each, marina-front restaurants and retail outlets at the lower levels. The towers have sloping roofs that increase in height from eight to 16 storeys.
CCL supplied its XU post-tensioning system, equipment and supervise the installation on site.
The use of post-tensioning meant that an additional storey was added within the building height restrictions. The flexibility that CCL’s XU post-tensioning system offers meant that a curved slab design was achieved.
