The structure consists of rigid rectangular hollow section columns bearing a roof structure rigid in two directions.
The model was calculated according to the second-order analysis, considering an inclination and precamber.
In addition, the hollow section columns were reinforced and concrete-lined, and analyzed as composite columns in order to reach the fire resistance class of F30 and increase the horizontal stiffness of the model.
The structure was mounted in January 2004.
