Built by ENKA the Eurasia Tower, a Multifunctional Business Complex on Plot No.12 of MIBC Moscow-City, is a high-rise building, consisting of A class offices and residential areas, with a total construction area of 210,000 m2. Owned by TECHINVEST, the tower is located in the Moscow-City region on the Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment. The high-rise section has 74 floors, reaching a total height above ground of 302 meters.
The Eurasia Tower is situated on a three-tier podium in which there is dedicated space for entertainment, restaurants, and shops. Approximately 110,000 m2 is reserved for office space with residential apartments occupying a further 22,000 m2. The five underground floors are for technical premises and parking for more than 1,000 cars. The external design of the building is a combination of classical and modernist styles.
The 3,000 mm thick, 10,000 m3 raft foundation under the tower, rests mainly on 1,500 mm diameter piles, 25 m in length, together with 1,200 mm diameter, 18 m piles. Hot rolled profiles and plates were fabricated at Çimtaş and transported to Moscow using river vessels. A self climbing formwork system was utilized for casting the core structures.
During the construction of the Eurasia Tower, more than 29,000 tons of structural steel, 80,000 m3 of reinforced concrete and 170,000 m2 of metal decking were used.
The structural design of the Eurasia Tower was developed by collaborative work between the Thornton-Tomasetti Engineers, ENKA Design Office and Gorproekt.
The Eurasia Tower project with its completed mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in the shell and core stage was handed over for operation in late 2013.

LocationMoscow, Russian Federation
- More than 10,000m3 concrete was casted continuously during foundation works within 72 hours
- Transportation of massive steel sections to the construction site was only possible at night shifts due to traffic conditions in Moscow
- Lifting of massive one-piece heavy equipment (55 tons in weight) to upper floors of the building
- More than 56 tons of electrodes were used during welding works at location
- The thickest steel plates used on column base for this work is 400 mm
- The largest Build-up box column section was 750 x 750 with 230 mm thick plates
- The torque capacity of every bolt used on the site was controlled and tested
- The erection of steel outrigger columns, above the 200 m elevation (above the 50th floor), despite heavy wind and severe winter conditions (-40 Celsius)
- Erection work at high elevations reaching up to 300 m (74th floor).
ENKA SCOPE OF SERVICES
In main contract, ENKA`s scope of work consisted of procurement and construction. Following the award of shell and core works addendum contract, mechanical, electrical, roof insulation, limited architectural works and continue with the supply, installation and commissioning of lifts and escalators were additionally included in scope of works.
SIGNIFICANT FEATURES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
- The Eurasia Tower and Naberezhnaya Towers (Block C) both of which were constructed by ENKA, are the only operational high-rise steel structure buildings in the Russian Federation
- The Eurasia Tower is one of the tallest (310m) high-rise buildings in Europe with 74 above ground and five underground floors
- The steel frame of the Eurasia Tower consists of 2,300 columns and 9,000 beams and was fabricated by ENKA’s subsidiary Çimtaş, utilizing seven CNC cutting and drilling machines and two robotic welding systems.
