This project involves the construction of a set of office buildings that include a skyscraper with 37 floors and 3 basements (199m of height above ground level) and two shopping centres with 8 floors each and 2/3 basements.
For the skyscraper is planned a structure type “tube in tube” with a large inner concrete core and a perimeter ring with facade columns. To ensure lateral stability three rings of stiffness located on floors 12, 24 and 33 formed by three trusses with a storey height and located from the core to the fourth truss.
The slabs with approximately 25 m span were designed with a bidirectional structural mesh with steel profiles as a basis for the composite slab.
The shoping centre buildings were designed with presstressed concrete columns to control the efects of the thermal expansion of the structure since it has 120m in length without expansion joints.
The site location is the former lands of the “Casa-Anfa” airport.
Design made with BIM methodology.
