Project description:
The Lookout Tower on Spicak hill (1202 m) has a height of 26.5m, so it surpasses the trees around, and its steel structure was designed with wooden cladding. The gallery from inside the viewing tower is designed for about 60 tourists. The tower was opened for public in the summer of 2014. The construction is financed by the EU. The main problems for designing this tower were related to its complex structure, the request for a 3D model and high expectations for errorless fabrication drawings. The use of Autodesk Advance Steel assured that accurate drawings and other documentation derived from the model were obtained.
