The Capital Reforma buildings are two steel framed skyscrapers located in the heart of Mexico City. Construction of the two 25 storey towers began in 2007 and was completed in 2014. The buildings provide a combined function of office space, hotel accommodation, residential apartments, and retail units.
Stylish urban tower profiles for Mexico City
The modernist designed architectural style of the Capital Reforma buildings creates a stunning urban image against the panoramic Mexico City skyline. The sleek curtain walling systems used in the development accentuate the clean architectural lines of the building’s façade which perfectly complements other nearby buildings in this busy area of the city.
The emblematic Reforma district has undergone extensive regeneration and the construction of the two Reforma buildings adds a stunning real estate complex to Mexico City’s burgeoning business district. The towers combine to create 40,000 square feet of glazed exterior sections which encapsulate the progressive outlook of this Central American metropolis.
Structurally glazed silicone spacers for high performing insulated glass units
Working alongside renowned structural architects GISCA and insulated glass unit (IGU) fabricators and glass specialists Millet, Edgetech supplied spacer bar for all the glass units used in the construction project.
Edgetech spacers were the perfect choice for this large-scale commercial project. Their flexible foam construction and inner acrylic adhesive seal have been proven to provide some of the highest levels of structural performance under the most extreme weather conditions. They are designed to limit heat transfer and enhance gas retention to create and maintain an ambient interior atmosphere.
In the tropical temperatures of Mexico City, Edgetech technology played an integral role in ensuring that a commercial building achieved the required levels of thermal performance.
