The first steel structural elements, which will serve as the roof’s structure and “grate” for the pier building’s aluminum and glass facade, were erected at the construction site of the western pier at Gdańsk Airport. DORACO is mounting the girders, each of them comprising of five sections, 36 meters long and weighing 12 tons. So far, four sections have been erected, and ultimately, there will be 20. The erection process will last around a month. The girders will be linked with each other and stiffened with additional steel beams. Together, they will form a structure that will be 180 meters long and 44 meters wide. Its total weight will be 600 tons. The structure will be mounted on “tree-shaped” steel columns with two and four supporting “branches.”
We are pleased to present an overview of DORACO’s actions taken so far within the #GaszynChallenge. Staff members of the company have collected nearly PLN 3,000 to rescue the health of children suffering from spinal muscular atrophy. We are glad to inform you that Franek’s parents from Szczecin (https://www.facebook.com/franekkepaSMA/) managed to collect a dizzying sum of PLN 9 million for gene therapy, which may slow down the progress of the disease. Fund-raising for Tosia from Gdynia (https://www.siepomaga.pl/ocalic-tosie) is still pending. We expect that it will also end with success, and the little girl will subsequently enjoy health and fitness.
