Madero Walk Events is part of a challenging new venture: the construction of a floating complex on Puerto Madero’s Dock 1. Construction was carried out in two separate stages. The first took place in a shipyard in Tigre and consisted of the construction of a four meter high 15m x 60m reinforced concrete pontoon with a base of special double ribbed slabs to allow for flotation. Once finished, the pontoon was put into the water and towed to its final destination in Puerto Madero. In a second stage, a reinforced concrete structure consisting of walls, beams, columns and cement slabs was created and general masonry and finishing work was done.
