The Jerusalem Post

Romema, Jerusalem

The building was built for the newspaper "The Jerusalem Post".
 
 

The building consists of offices, editing rooms, reporter's offices, etc. In addition, a printing room was built with an interior that rises up 3 stories. In this space, there is also a basement with special supports for the printing machines. A concrete foundation was also laid on the ground floor to support the heavy printing machinery.

The floor and the walls of the printing room were kept separate from the office area with an expansion joint, in order to prevent vibration from the machinery from disturbing those in the offices

This new building was built adjacent the paper's old building. A system of piles was built in order to protect it.
