The scheme also features a boutique hotel in an adjacent low-rise block incorporating retail and gym facilities. The entire development is built over a three storey basement structure housing swimming pool and spa facilities. A private cinema, wine storage and resident car parking are also provided in the basement.
A top-down construction sequence for the basement saved time on construction. The piling configuration was arranged to enable temporary and permanent works to be combined in order to increase efficiency.
All structures are reinforced concrete frame elements. The hotel and tower floors make use of thin post tensioned slabs for maximum floor to floor height efficiency.
The tower’s stability system adopts staggered outrigger elements strategically placed to control the tower’s movement with minimum impact on apartment layouts. The tower’s column configuration was optimised for the complex 3D geometry ensuring the best solution for apartment layouts.
