This is a mixed development with two residential towers of 18 storeys, malls, commercial block, a hotel tower and a multiplex. A challenge in this project was to develop efficiency of stresses in the structural frame through judicious conceptualisation and sophisticated modelling such that the overall consumption of concrete and steel reduces significantly. For example, in the moderately high earthquake zone, the total steel consumption in the residential towers has worked out to less that 4 kg/sqft of built-up area inclusive of all laps, cutting wastes and the substructure steel. For the non-residential areas, flat slab and column/shear wall structure with just the perimeter beams is developed for simplicity, speed, flexibility and high economy.
