The concrete frame of the SAB Neubau Leipzig has been completed. Construction started in 2017 and after extensive basement retaining works, the 5 Storey structure is now 21m high. Along the perimeter, slender, 21m tall, spun-concrete columns were craned into position before the slab was cast. The concept of the perimeter columns is that they will evolve into a forest of columns to define a forum facing the historic city centre. Completion of the project is expected in 2020.
