Thailand Iconsiam Department Store pleated glass façade

SUCOOT is honored to take part in the Thailand's biggest commercial project to date - Iconsiam. Built at a cost of US$1.65 billion, Bangkok's Iconsiam is a 750,000 square meter riverside complex made up of retail, dining, entertainment and residential spaces.

Iconsiam is being developed by Siam Piwat, the owner and operator of globally reputed prestigious retail developments including Siam Paragon, Siam Center, and Siam Discovery, MQDC Magnolia Quality Development Corporation, the owner and developer of luxury residences and mixed-use projects, and Charoen Pokphand Group, a leading Thai company that makes global investments.

One of the biggest features of the pavilion is the “luxury glass wall” facing the river. The shape of the façade is geometrically utmost complex. To adapt its irregular shape, our Ring System Scaffolding adequately gave full play to its flexibility. The scaffold provided glass installation crews complete access for glass lifting and handling.

As the glass front reaches a height of up to 24m, the scaffold was roughly 23-meter high by XX-meter long and dropped off with the design of the building. Lots of Bracket-Cantilevers were used as access because of the complexity of the structure.

It is always great to be challenged by constructors and this project truly showcases our scaffold engineering and custom fabricating capabilities.
