In the Shopping city of Sibiu, a truss roof with a very impressive skylight structure was designed. The truss structure of the roof is 3.3 - 3.7 meters tall.

The combination between steel structure and glass covering creates an elliptic hole in the roof structure, bringing natural light inside.

The skylight itself is supported on 8 points by a double web I section. The combined weight of the roof and the skylight structure is 150 tonnes.

 The skylight structure and its supporting was checked with shell model also:
We are glad to say that ConSteel software was used for the design. Nice job!
