Project Description

This is one of our most emblematic projects. It was finished on 1997 and it was the first project ANCLAJES GRPAMAR make in colaboration with Frank Gehry, one of the world famous architects. All the areas whit stone were fixed with our system Ref. 1005. Althoughwe had to make some modifications to fit the requirements of the engineering teamfrom Frank Gehry’s office.
The building is situated facing to the stuary of Bilbao, so the seaside is very aggressive with the steel because of the humidity and salted environment. The stone is a Yellow Amber from national quarries in Caravaca de la Cruz (Murcia – Spain) and the total facade surface was 7000 square meters. It was a real challenge, but after being in touch with the technical staff, and after a long time spent on the design for covering the required needs from the engineers we managed to design the perfect cladding for this singular project.
