International Carrasco Airport
The ICA was a real challenge, where several options of the system were applied. The main facade constituted almost half of the material installed. It has bends of 30º and 40º in relation to the vertical line, and clear heights of 14 to 21 m. In most of the cases, the windowpanes installed weighed 100 kg. each, and in some cases they weighed 240 kg. Auxiliary movable metal structures were constructed to assemble them.
