Arups Tall Buildings in Asia: Stories Behind the Storeys
Publish Date: 2017-12-12
Through a series of detailed case studies from East Asia, Arup, one of the global leaders in tall building design, presents the latest developments in the field to inspire more innovative and sustainable ideas in tall building design and engineering.
This book exhibits the key design aspects of tall buildings in 20 case studies, from China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Japan. Chapters cover design and construction, safety concerns, sustainability strategies, BIM and optimisation solutions, and include contributions from the actual project engineers. The projects chosen are not the tallest buildings, but all of them have been selected for their significant engineering insights and values. Arups engineers explain the design principles, and how they overcame various design constraints and challenges, while exceeding their clients expectations.
Unique examples include:
the design and application of a hybrid outrigger system in the Raffles City Chongqing project
the challenges encountered in the construction of the CCTV Headquarters, Beijing
as well as Tianjins Goldin Finance 117 Tower, Ho Chi Minh Citys Vincom Landmark 81, the China Resources Headquarters, Ping An IFC, Tokyos Nicolas G Hayek Center and the Shanghai World Financial Centre.
These varied and complex cases studies draw on multi-disciplinary design and engineering challenges which make this book essential reading for architects, structural engineers, project managers and researchers of high-rise buildings. The book also provides a usual reference and link between practitioners in the industry, academia and engineering students.
