28 April 2011 No Comment

Mota-Engil Engenharia will build the structure of one of the largest and most qualified real estate projects planned for the centre of Lisbon: the Metrópolis Project (Projecto Metrópolis in its original designation). Totalling about 6.5 million euros, the contract was awarded by Multi 38 – Sociedade Imobiliária and includes deep foundations and topometry tasks. The expected time-limit for completion is 10 months. With a construction area over 37,000 m2, the project involves relevant quantities such as 61,528 m3 of earthworks, 18,200 m3 of concrete, over 1700 tons of steel and 56,500 m2 of formwork, 1889 m of piles, about 7000 m2 of diaphragm walls, as well as 287 tons of steel structure. The set of high profile Metrópolis office buildings predicts the revitalisation of the entire area around the Jose Alvalade Stadium and intermodal terminal at Campo Grande. Benefiting from a privileged urban location, the complex will feature a large parking space.
