ZEMAN Bauelemente offers breath-taking 360 degree views on an icy summit
At an impressive height of 3,048 metres, the design-restaurant “Ice Q”, which was opened on the Gaislachkogel in Sölden at the end of 2013, sets new standards for high alpine construction. ZEMAN also made a significant contribution to its realisation.
In addition to the 360 degree views, the restaurant with a connecting bridge to the summit cross impresses with its construction, which is made from glass, wood and 140 tonnes of steel, manufactured and delivered by ZEMAN. The construction site at 3,000 metres above sea level posed major challenges for man and material: The protruding part that forms the first floor had to be rigid so that the glass facade does not distort. The entire building is only anchored in the area of the internal lift shaft; the remaining structure is mounted on movable frames. The access bridge and the connecting bridge to the summit cross are also mounted on movable frames. Click here for further impressions of “Ice Q”.
