166 m office tower being built as new HQ for banking group Intesa Sanpaolo SpA in Turin

02.12.2013 | Press
World-famous Italian star architect Renzo Piano is the name behind another new urban landmark in Turin, this time a sophisticated highrise project in the city’s San Paolo district. The client is the banking group Intesa Sanpaolo SpA (BISP), whose around 100,000 staff and over 5000 branches make it one of the largest in the eurozone. The new building will fulfil very exacting structural and environmental standards. Rising to a height of 166 m, it will also take up a visually pre-eminent position in the Turin skyline. Especially with its automatic climbing equipment, Doka is helping this structure to be built economically and to high quality specifications.


  • The Doka Formwork Experts developed a formwork solution based on the Automatic climbing formwork SKE50 plus and SKE100 plus systems for the structure cores.
  • The new office tower will be the second-tallest building in Turin, after the city’s best-known landmark the Mole Antonelliana.
  • Potsdamer Platz, Centre Pompidou, New York Times Building: star architect Renzo Piano is a modern master of the large-scale architectural project, of which the Torre Intesa Sanpaolo is but the latest.
