THE TOWER

VALUE ENGINEERING

  • BG&E undertook re-engineering of the building’s floors and columns system to suit the Contractor’s equipment and construction methodology.

BG&E ALTERNATIVE DESIGN

  • Use of precast concrete floors spanning from the core to the façade acting compositely with the perimeter beams through an in-situ structural concrete topping.
  • Use of structural steel circular hollow sections columns designed on a fire engineering basis.

OUTCOMES

  • The structural format proposed by BG&E enabled completion of two floors per week throughout the construction cycle. Early handover of the low-rise floor was achieved on programme, and handover of the high-rise was 5 months ahead of schedule.
