The tallest seafront residential tower in the Mediterranean has been built in Limassol in Cyprus: At a height of 170 meters, the ONE-Tower features 37 floors and is scheduled to become the island’s new landmark. Experts from Master Builders Solutions® supported the contractor in every stage of construction, providing admixtures MasterGlenium SKY, MasterSet, MasterLife, MasterRoc and MasterMatrix. They made a substantial contribution to the success of this project and enabled a 30% faster concrete placing compared to conventional products, a cost reduction by 30% and a 100% longer corrosion protection. “Our customers benefit of our wide range of admixtures for the most specific challenges,” points out Dr. Michael Fischer, responsible at Master Builders Solutions for regional market management for concrete additives in Europe. “In case of the ONE-Tower, the contractor was able to deal with the height of the building, the challenging marine environment and the tight time schedule.”
