Outokumpu Supplies La Sagrada Familia

05 Jan 2016




















La Sagrada Família Basilica is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, designed in 1866 by famous architect Antoni Gaudí, commissioned in 1882 and expected to be completed in 2026. Outokumpu has been supplying stainless steel for the basilica since 2013 in the form of rebar, bar, machined components and plasma-cut plate products.


The building has exceptional lifecycle expectations and a unique design. Upon completion, the 18 towers of La Sagrada Família will reach heights from 94 to 182 meters above ground level. Stainless steel rebar was selected first in the tower structures due to its high strength, exceptional corrosion resistance and reduced lifecycle costs. Outokumpu is the single-supplier for the project, delivering products in Outokumpu Forta DX 2304 and Forta DX 2205 grades in easy to assemble sizes and shapes.


Mr. Carles Farràs, representative for the Basilica of La Sagrada Família says: “We selected Outokumpu for its valuable technical assistance and also for the high quality of its products. We expect the construction process of the Basilica to continue until 2026 and believe that stainless steel is an ideal material that can meet our requirements. Outokumpu has been a great help in advising on cost-efficient and long lasting solutions for our demanding structures.”
