WITH­STANDS BOTH FIRE AND WA­TER

Science Illustrated - - ASK US -

Although the build­ing is made from wood, it meets all re­quire­ments to fire safety. The wood el­e­ments have been cov­ered with ply­wood mixed with fi­bre­glass, which would take 1-2 hours to burn.

Wood is not the only con­struc­tion ma­te­rial in the 53-m-high build­ing. The foun­da­tions are of con­crete, and the roof is made from steel beams and metal sheets cov­ered by rub­ber mem­branes, which pro­tect the wood against rain.
