Dollar Bay, London – Last unit installation
We are proud to have been part of this stunning project!
“It is with great pleasure that we can say Dollar Bay has topped out. The first piece of glass was installed in September 2015 (image one) and now, 13 months later, Focchi Spa have completed the installation (image two). All the jigsaw pieces have fallen perfectly into place ahead of completions in the coming weeks and is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Dollar Bay team.” Mount Anvil
Dollar Bay – rumbles on the rooftops of London
An amazing Aston Martin race car (V8 Vantage GTE Challenger), worth 1 million pounds, has been flying 300 ft high in a daring stunt, to land on an unusual and exclusive podium: above the 31st floor of “Dollar Bay”, crystalline glass tower which overlooks financial district, Canary Wharf.
« We are here today to celebrate the Aston Martin and Mount Anvil, » said Jon Hall, Mount Anvil Director. «Both sharing the value of iconic design, exceptional quality and world-class approach to health and safety». The same values in which Focchi Group believes, since over 100 years specialized in the design, production and installation of curtain walling with high technology, innovative and sustainable contents.

Tall Buildings Urbanism – 6th Iuav International Conference – CityLife Milan
Tuesday April 19th 2016. Focchi sponsor of the 6th Iuav International Conference in the new CityLife development of Milan. Organized by Professor Aldo Norsa, promoted by Iuav University of Venice and the Politecnico of Milan, with the patronage of the Council on Tall Buildings and Hurban Habitat (http://www.ctbuh.org/) and supported by CityLife.
The conference addressed two main issues relating to the design and construction of tall buildings involving academics, designers, builders, town planners and researchers.
Then focus on the ex-novo construction of tall buildings, the flows management, infrastructures to common areas and insigths on existing heritage, with recovery, renovation, retrofit and deconstruction.
While being constructed a few skyscrapers, Italy has accumulated an extraordinary expertise to offer to the world. One among all Allianz Tower by Isozaki-Maffei in CityLife Milan, Italian’s tallest skyscaper, which amezes for its lightness and the technology of a glass architecture that makes the city even brighter, reflected on the façades manufactured and installed by Focchi Group. (read all about our project)
«Italy is pure inspiration!» has affirmed the great architect Daniel Libeskind called on stage by Professor Aldo Norsa. “Young architects today must have the strength to assert their opinion and move on, thinking of the future, without forgetting the tradition.”
«Culture, identity, authenticity» perhaps express the synthesis of the conference, as pointed out in the opening by John Iorio, founder of J & A Consultants: “ Zigurat. The man in history has always tried to build something high to protect himself or to assert himself. Today more than ever the human scale is the new measure that defines the space”. High or very high that they are “the skyscrapers in Italy,” said Patricia Viel of Citterio & Viel “are always and yet heroes.”
A conference that addressed urgent issues of the sector, comparing with an unusual rhythmic and elegant balance, soul and technicalities, looking at “modern as something of which we are heirs”, as wisely recalled by Maria Antonietta Crippa of Politecnico of Milan.
