On the 31st of January, a “topping out ceremony” took place at the B1 building of the European Family Center
On the 31st of January, a “topping out ceremony” took place at the B1 building of the European Family Center in Sopot. The entire reinforced concrete structure is complete. Steel structure is being assembled. The emerging building shape can be seen from under the scaffoldings. From the inside you can see the effect that the geometry of the external walls has on the interior space. Present at the topping out ceremony, representatives of the Investor, Sopot City Hall and people involved in the creation of ECR and INVICTA supporters. For our part, we thank the Investor for the opportunity to speak directly to the audience about the idea of the facade and the city-forming values of ECR. Thank you all for your attendance and those involved in the creation of ECR, especially thank you for your daily effort in this demanding project.

Golden. One of the last design elements of the Invicta clinic in Wrocław
FAAB actively participated in the implementation of one of the last elements of the Invicta clinic in Wrocław. We have helped to move the graphic designed by us, from drawings, to walls and ceilings. This is the missing link in the idea of combining the floor pattern with the ceiling through the wall. Now everything is in the hands of painters. Pictures from the completed realization soon.
