Need some advices

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi All,

For my final year project, I have to write the design concept for the office tower with 40 floors, 4 basement car parks and a plaza area at the ground level with an overall height of 180 metres above ground. The floor area is approx. 48mx42m.

The main feature of this project is that:
-The floors are hung by truss at five different levels
-The truss height is 3 floor level
-Main columns only support the strusses (not any floors)
-A 12-story central atrium space above plaza level.

Question:
-The typical layout of this kind of structure
-What is the best materials used and reasons
-Is this kind of structure buildable

I would like some ideas from big brothers and sisters in this specialty.
Thank you very much

Kind regards,

Billy
