Project overview

The Obel Tower stands at 28 stories high, making it the tallest building in the city of Belfast. Standing at 88.31 metres high and dominating Belfast’s skyline, the Obel Tower took two years to build and was selected by Construction Excellence in Northern Ireland as a demonstration project due to its innovative construction methods. Geberit’s expertise in providing piping, drainage and bathroom systems was called into action for this most iconic of Belfast’s buildings. The Obel Tower was the first UK-based project to use Geberit Sovent fittings, which allow the use of smaller diameter soil stack pipes and offset self siphonage from the floats, which was a particular requirement from the contractor.
