The V Tower Project, Prague
Designed by the architect studio of Radan Hubička, the V Tower in Prague is an exceptional residential development located close to the Vltava river with breathe taking views across the historic city centre and Prague castle. This landmark building, with its bold, modern architectural design has been constructed using the most advanced technological and sustainable building solutions, and finished with high end materials to provide elegance, comfort and a perfect living experience across thirty floors of apartments.
The construction of such a unique building, the highest in Prague and the Czech Republic at 124m tall, required specialist contractors including bespoke vertical transportation provided by PEGA Hoists.
Construction of the V Tower took two and a half years to complete, with 400 construction personnel working on site. PEGA Hoists involvement in the project was to provide world-class vertical construction hoists for the transportation of building materials and provide personnel access to different working floors during the construction phases of the project.
PEGA Hoist Equipment
PEGA Hoists supplied 2 x PEGA 2737 TD VFC HS TWIN mast climbers, operating to a building height of 124m tall with mast climber hoists travelling up to 110m. The V Tower is an inclined vertical architectural design in all directions, so PEGA designed vertical transportation hoists with non-standard bespoke designed compensating ties and landing access platforms.
PEGA Hoists was accredited for this unique V Tower project, being awarded and regarded as the best and most reliable contractor on the site.
“ During the towers’ construction, there were situations where safe improvisation and non-standard, fast support solutions or modifications were required. PEGA Hoists exceeded our expectations with their (vertical transportation) solutions and support and demonstrated unbeatable reliability and responsibility. They were by far the best supplier we had on site.”
