The construction of a high rise building in a seismic zone and in a country where most of the constructions are made in concrete was a considerable challenge assumed by the teams participating in this project. Designed by architectural firms Rogers Stirk Harbor + Partners and El Equipo Mazzanti, the ATRIO towers in Bagota in Colombia features impressive columns and façade trusses built to resist seismic activity and improve the torsional behaviour of the structure, a breakthrough for local architecture and structural design. To meet the design and its technical requirements, ArcelorMittal International supplied 3,900 tons of steel profiles, including 400 tons of HISTAR high-strength steel ASTM A913, manufactured by ArcelorMittal Europe Long Products in Differdange in Luxembourg.
ATRIO is an impressive mixed-use project located in the center of Bogotá, Colombia. Composed of two towers, North and South, it will offer 250,000 square meters for offices and 10,000 square meters of public space at ground level. It is ArcelorMittal's first high-rise project in South America. 90% of the structural steel profiles for the construction of the North Tower were supplied by ArcelorMittal.
