Comprehensive solution with XSRail overhead system
In 2020, a new building seemed to have risen on Grote Bickersstraat, on Bickerseiland in the heart of Amsterdam. De Walvis, the former home of TNS NIPO, underwent a transformation according to the design by KAAN architects.
The transformation involved an extensive renovation of the 10,000 m2 building. The building was completely stripped it down to its shell, preserving only the floors, columns, and core, while addressing all other elements thoroughly. This encompassed the installation of an aluminum curtain wall covering over 4000 m2, which includes a walkable glass cleaner’s platform on each floor.
To safely access the platform, XSPlatforms designed special brackets to fit in an XSRail overhead system. Eventually XSPlatforms partner AllRisk installed the system on each floor of the building.
